    Hi I have a HP d530 computer and I can't for the life of me work out how to get Wake on LAN working on it it is enabled in bios I'm sure that the command line program I am using too works because it works on other machines (mc-wol).

    I've tried searching google and I read somewhere that sometimes some computers need to be set to do a full boot rather than a quick boot but all that did was make it take forever to boot.

    I also read to make sure that it is enabled under the advanced tab on the network card itself but it definitely is it is set to accept both magic packets and magic frames I have even tried setting it to just accept magic packets as that is what is sent from mc-wol, still no luck.

    I've even tried updating the bios to the latest version from the HP website but it didn't help either, any ideas?
