SL500-Wifi Problems !

2009-06-28, 14:05 PM

Hi,

My problem is very strange I think.

My Wifi suddenly disconnects. The led switch off and Vista goes in panic. I must reboot and all return normal.

It happens very frequently.

I thought it could be a problem of drivers, software conflicts, WiFi interferences..

Nothing. Finally I find that it happens every time I make pressure, also very light pressure, on keyboard and especially touchpad zone ! Unbelievable.

What can I do?

Do you think it would be possible or I make a mistake?

I got the warranty but it's absurd don't you think?

below the keyboard is a door that contains the wifi card and the antennas are hooked up to it. I would say to make sure everythings secure but i wouldnt mess around with it cause you could damage the antennas but its your choice.

I could damage the antennas ?? I think they are already almost damaged !

Or do you want to say that is normal?

But practically I can't put my hands on my notebook.. There is always the risk that the wifi disconnects !

And one thing : why have I to reboot every time the system?

 

Do you think that my notebook is repairable?

Thanks!

Its repairable..But maybe the problem is when your applying pressure to the keyboard its somehow doing something to the wifi card or antennas. I dont know about the reboot thing though. You should call lenovo about it.
