  1. Hello...
    Is there any software needed for my laptop's external wi-fi and sound volume control buttons? Just finished reinstalling my laptop. I've downloaded and installed the HP Wireless Assistant but I can't access wi-fi when i push the button (it keep showing WLAN : Disabled)... I can't control the sound volume using those external buttons too... Any ideas?

  2. first for external wifi you need additional software or driver, it depend on the wifi model.
    second make sure you installed all the drivers i posted above.
    Third for the audio external button, normally it doesn't need any driver. btw lets solve the wifi problems first, can u get the wifi model?

  3. Thanks for your reply...
    My problem solved actually... I open windows device manager, right click, update driver, windows search driver on the internet & my wifi is available...
    But I still got one more problem, how to fix the SM Bus Controller problem? Tried right click and update driver but no luck... Any ideas?

  9. One more thing bro, nape xleh install/upgrade to win vista ek? Aritu beli cd vista sp2, tp bile install die cakap xleh psl hard disk fat32... Nk format balik leceh tu...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Untuk ubah partition hard disk dari fat32 kpd ntfs ataupun sebaliknya adalah melalui format, masalahnya kita kene backup data, agak lecech la.

    tp..sebenarnya ada cara untuk tukar fat32 kpd ntfs selain format iaitu:
    1. Guna command prompt
    2. Guna 3rd party software

    Jaid 3rd party tu biakan dulu, skarang cuma guna CMD (command prompt).
    tuk bka command prompt Start-All Programs-Accessories -cmd
    ataupun start - run pastu taip CMD.EXE

    pastu kakalu nak convert partition C misalnya taip

    CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS

    kalau D

    CONVERT D: /FS:NTFS

    ReplyDelete
  11. Encik Black, message ni kluar la:

    Convert cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Convert may run if this volume is dismounted first.
    ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID.
    Would you like to force a dismount on this volume?

    Check kat Task Manager xde ape2 running... What happened?

    ReplyDelete
  12. salam kerol,
    Biar saya test dengan komputer saya dulu, kalau force xda masalah then saudara boleh proceed dengan force dismount.

    berkaitan denga task manager, cuba tekan TAB process, kat situ bnyak process dari C seperti explorer.exe

    ReplyDelete
  13. ok...

    Task Manager tu bnyak sangat process yg running (Processes Tab)... Kalau End nnti lain pulak jadi kan?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Salam kerol,
    kalau end process tu akan berhenti, contoh kalau end EXPLORER.EXE taskbar dan windows icon semua akan hilang, yang tinggal hanyalah desktop background sahaja. Kena tahu satu2ah process tu apa fungsinya.
    Buat masa sekarang ni xsempat laginak test sebab esok atau lusa saya akan ke selangor, nnt ada kesempatan saya akan buat secepat yang mungkin.

  15. salam encik black,
    probs saya kali ini adalah dvd-rw driver saya tak bleh main dvd tp cd (audio/data) works just fine...
    probs ini trjadi sebaik saja saya install software AVS Video Converter Full Version (crack la tp....)
    saya dh try uninstall software tu, begitu juga driver dvd saya tp bila reboot dia auto detect/install semula...
    update driver pn dh gak...
    saya menggunakan Slimtype DVD A DS8AZP

  16. w'salam kerol,
    biasanya kalau unistall pun mungkin dia dah modify generic driver utk DVD/CD drive dan mungkin ada registry yang telah berubah, biasanya kalau mcama ni kita buat system restore shj,

    start - all program -system tools - system restore.

    pilih restore pada tarikh sebelum install AVS

  21. thank you for sharing your knowledge Aziz,
    I have a problem. my presario c500 wireless connection is not working. I suppose to try your advice to install first the chipset driver. However my RAM is only 512mb. what driver should I install Sir?

    1. 1. it is normal to have 512m ram for presario c500 and recommended to upgrade into 1GB or 2GB max.

      2. There are 2 drivers I posted above which is Intel and broadcom, try each driver. If still didn't work - you need to check your wireless status.

      3.. To check your wireless driver status (installed or not).Read my guide here to check hardware ID, then report if you found any device marked with yellow mark.

    FIrst the SMBus controller refer to Chipset driver it refer to intel chipset driver and intel ahci driver.
    Just try installing the chipset and sata driver i posted above.
