Error 1804

2009-03-02, 21:18 PM

I am hoping this isnt a serious problem but I have been struggling with it for some time now...

 

I am getting an error when starting the W500 (now 2 weeks old). 

 

1804: Unauthorized WAN card is plugged in - Power off and remove the WAN card. 

 

I havent put a WAN card into the laptop or played with any of the WAN settings so I dont think this is the issue. It also lists a System board problem as number 2 cause so I am thinking this maybe the issue...

 

Does anyone have any ideas on how to test this or experience of this problem in the past?

Welcome to the forum!

 

Time to send the machine in, it needs a new planar.

 

Good luck and keep us posted.

Cheers,

George

Cheers George. 

 

It' not something I wanted to have to do on a new machine... lets hope that's all it will ever have.
