The network controller in the PC gives an amazing performance. But sometimes the network controller might not work properly due to various reasons.
Network controller issues that can occur in HP EliteBook 2740p Tablet PC are discussed in the following points.
- Lack of proper network driver
- Manufacturing defects in supporting hardware
- Fails to update the driver
Lack of proper network driver
One of the reasons for the improper working of network controller is the absence of supporting driver. For the efficient functioning we must install the driver. If it is not installed, the coordination between the server and client is not possible. Due to these reasons the network controller may stop its functioning. If such a situation is created in the system, go to the ‘Device Manager’ and find out whether the network controller is working with the driver.
Manufacturing defects in supporting hardware
Some hardware components are required for the working of a network controller. Without the support of this hardware we cannot get the connection properly. Sometimes even having all the supporting hardware and driver, there will be problems while using the network. The reason may be due to the manufacturing defects in the hardware. To avoid this, select good quality hardware. Purchasing company hardware may reduce this type of problems.
Another reason for the abnormal working of network controller is the mismatch in driver. The driver for the network varies according to the operating system. If the driver you are installing is not suitable for the currently running platform, an error can occur. Always check whether the driver installed is suitable for the operating system. If you are switching from one platform to another, do not forget to update the drivers also.
