    HP Probook 4515s wi-fi problem


    I just bought a HP Probook 4515s and I immediately installed Sabayon 5.1. I counter 2 problems.
    1) When I boot sometimes before logging to the home screen the pc shuts down! I have to reboot 2 or 3 times until I log in.
    2) (And the major problem) Wi-Fi does't seems to work.

    There's a page to laptopwiki where these 2 problems are mentioned for my laptop. The editor suggests a fix for Ubuntu but it doesn't seems to do any good for Sabayon.

    Any ideas? Thank you in advance and excuse my english.

    Start here for the Wireless and post the info in this thread for further assistance.

    What do you mean the PC shuts down? Is it shutting down and rebooting? Or is the desktop just going dark? Please explain a little more.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Check the ndiswrapper wiki page together with the wicd that might help you with the wifi issue. Ndiswrapper takes the .ini files from the windows driver and builds a sort of module to make the wifi card to work. The wicid is a network manager the best in my very personal opinion.
