Hello, I have two strange problems with a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5545 laptop, running Windows 8.1.
The wi-fi is not detected when I turn of the computer. It shows the symbol for signal with a plus next to the clock. So each time I start, I have to go to Network and Sharing / Change adapter settings / right click the wireless (it is a Intel Pro Wireless 3945ABG) - Disable and then Enable.
After that it works fine, but I have to do this each time.
The built in webcam is missing completely. Is not listed in Device Manager, there's not even a section for images devices.
The other day, I wanted to see if there's something in Bios, but I failed to catch the moment when you can enter it. So right after starting Windows, without activating wifi or anything, I pressed restart.
And: surprise. The computer started with everything working right away. The wifi adapter logged to the network without disable/enable and when I looked at the Device Manager, there was a section Imaging devices or so, and USB camera listed. I was even able to use the webcam perfectly.
From than on, when I open the computer it's all as usual: the webcam missing and the wifi needs to be disabled.
Is there a possibility I could make it start with these components like it did after that reboot? :)
