Hi chaitunani,

Welcome to the community.

I would like to inform you that sim card slot is available so that you can use 3g broadband on the system as well if required.

In order to make it work you need to ensure the mobile broadband application and drivers are installed on the system.

Please let us know which mobile broadband card is installed on the system so we can provide you with the relevant drivers and applications. You can also download them yourself at the link below:

Hi chaitunani,

We truly regret the inconvenience that has been caused to you.

Please let me know if you have installed a active 3g enabled sim card inside the system. As the card that seems to be installed inside is a dummy card only.

If you wish to know which broadband card is installed on the system then please contact me through a private message by clicking on my name highlighted in blue. On the next page, click the envelope icon and provide your service tag and contact information so I may access your system records.

Thanks and Regards
