I've read that it is a video chipset overheat, so as in xbox 360, or compaq v3000, you must use a heat gun, and resolder it

You could try using a wireless adapter that connects through usb but the connection is not as strong. Otherwise I would try to buy an internal wireless card which is just installed into a PCI slot on your motherboard.

My friend has a Compaq presario f600 laptop & needs to replace the motherboard. What sort of motherboard would he need to get for it please?


I think I have the same laptop that also needs a motherboard. The Presario F600 also had a m/n of F572US found on the label with serial. Looking on the Compaq site I found the motherboard is the same as for the F500 notebooks which is 442875-001. Link is at: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01095493.pdf This number is also found under the memory chips on most Compaq/Hp Laptops. Simply open memory cover and remove the memory chips and there you will find the Motherboard replacement number. Good Luck!

Compaq Presario F500 - won't boot up - power and lights etc on, tries to start but cuts out after about a second


Check out this recall and see if it applies to your model laptop. From what I here, the motherboard may need to be replaced, and may be under a specila warranty.

After buying the laptop in april 2007 my compaq presario F500 the wireless connection has disappeared and the light is contantly orange which ever way i moved the button to turn on the wireless.


Hello Handbag.
The issue which you are facing is a known issue. This is common in F500 series notebooks.
You can get it repired for free of cost by contacting HP technical support, even if the notebook is out of warranty.
All you have to do is refer the below link:

And check if you product is listed here. Then contact HP support by chat or email., then you can get the notebook repaired.

Want to purchase a wireless router to connect my compaq presario f500 to another desktop computer


Hi,

Most Wireless Routers by LinkSys, D-Link and NetGear are pretty good and stable. Personally, have tried LinkSys WRT54G (as a repeater), WRT300N and NetGear MR814.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
