Couldn't find the battery. The BIOS has no CMOS related options.

Anyway, i have it working now, but not quite perfect. In Vista, i tried Fn-F5, which kicked the interface back into gear. After doing that, in Ubuntu i found i could use the card again after typing "sudo modprobe iwlagn", but this won't survive a reboot. Sorry if my knowledge of dealing with modules is limited, but how can I make this change permanent?
gksudo gedit /etc/modules
Then add the name of the module to the bottom of the file, should work.

The CMOS (Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor) set-up is that screen you get to by hitting F2. CMOS stores the options you select like boot order and is on volatile memory. The BIOS is the OS on that ROM chip. Ya, most people call it BIOS settings but really they are settings in CMOS.
