If you have vista click the start button and in the start search type "hp wireless assistant". It should show up in your list while you type it. Click on it. Once the assistant box shows up, click on "properties". A "settings" box should show up. The main one you need here is "independant controls for installed wireless device". Check that box. The other ones are icons and indicators that you can check at your discretion. If in doubt, check them all. Hit the "apply" button. Then in the upper right hand side of the box hit the button that says "turn on". This should activate the device and if you have a light up indicator on your computer, it should change color or light up. That should do it. Kind of weird how it gets to that point.

Compaq Presario V2000 Screen went black

my laptop was fine till one day I turned it on and had a black screen. I connected it to an external monitor and all is well with that computer works fine. the little button on top left side that gets pushed and puts the computer in sleep mode when the lid is closed, if i play with that a little I can see the screen for a second till it goes into sleep mode. Before I buy a new LCD for it I just wonder if that button could be stuck or something making the screen black?

**Even though your computer may SAY that it is a Presario V2000, it may have an entirely different product number for downloading drivers specific to your particular configuration.**

1) Look at the serial code on the back/bottom of your computer: there is a number starting with p/n (ex. p/nEX664UA#APL) This code identifies your computer beyond the V2000 label.

2) Go to the compaq/hp website:

3) select "Download Drivers and software(and firmware)"

4) THEN, enter your P/N Instead of "Presario V2000" into the product name/number box, and hit enter.

Select your operating system, and you will be redirected to a page listing all the necessary drivers for your model.

On the left of your screen, you will see a box that says "your product" with a picture of a laptop, and a model number beneath it. THIS IS YOUR ACTUAL MODEL NUMBER (Mine was Compaq Presario V2610CA Notebook PC).

5) Download and install the drivers you need, and gappy geeking!!!

how can disable touchpad of my COMPAQ Presario

how can disable touchpad of my COMPAQ Presario CQ42 laptop

Posted by on


  • Most Helpful of 4 Answers

On most Compaq's of the CQ42 model type, there should be a little light on the top right hand corner of the touchpad, not much bigger than a pinhead. When the touchpad is active the light is out so you shouldn't see the lamp. Quickly double tap the area on the lamp and it should light up. This is an indication that the touchpad is now not active.

Compaq Presario v2000 w/ dead USB ports

The usb ports on my v2000 no longer work. When I plug in any USB device it is not recognized. Everything else on the machine is working fine (wifi, ethernet, DVD - CDRW, etc.).

I have tried reinstalling the drivers, but that has not worked. Could it be a hardware problem?

I have the same problem with my Compaq Presario V2000. Lost both USB ports and HP tells me that the motherboard has to be replaced at $300 +..I searched and found a PCMCIA card with two USB ports for $10. No problems with the USB ports on this card..great and cheap solution.
My belief is that the compaq usb ports do not have power limiting circuitry therefore allowing you to overload the output power on the ports. My ports failed after I downloaded into a burglar alarm system I was programming.

Laptop CD/DVD Drive

I have a problem with my CD/DVD drive on my Presario laptop. About 8 months ago, my computer mysteriously stopped recognizing the drive. Then, as mysteriously as the problem arose, about a month later the drive started working again and all was fine. Then, about a month ago, the drive stopped working again, meaning I cannot use this drive at all. The disc drive is still getting power, and I can open and close the drive without problem, but it is not recognized. Any solutions? I am a graduate student and quite anxious to burn the large amount of material on my computer to a back up CD. Thanks for your help!
