Re: Wireless on Lenovo G530

You are right thanks. I thought I had installed Power Management but appears only unzipped it. With the switch set and pressing Fn+F5 it works.

Wireless problems with G530 4446

Hello all - I have a Lenovo G530 4446, downgraded to Windows XP. I've had some trouble with the wireless for several months now - it basically just randomly cuts out. When I try to click on the tray icon, the computer freezes, if i try to reconnect to the network, it claims there are no networks within in range and/or freezes. It only fixes when I restart the computer, then everything is fine. Sometimes, shortly after it freezes, I will get a blue screen of death and an automatic restart - very annoying.


I've tried downloading new drivers for the Intel 5100 AGN from the lenovo site, it doesn't help. I've also ran chkdsk, that fixes the problem for about a week, then it comes back.


Thank you for any help.
