If you mean you want to set it up for wireless internet, then you need to check first if the wireless card is enabled/present.

Go to start. Right click my computer. Click properties>hardware>device manager.
If you see a yellow question mark, red x or an exclamation mark on any of the items in the list, tell me. Ideally, you should see 'network adapters'. Click the plus beside it. See if you see anything that says wireless under it. If there's a red x beside the wireless entry, right click it and click enable.

If you dont see any entry with yellow question mark, red x or an exclamation mark and dont see a wireless entry under network adapters, it means you dont have a wireless card installed. Or you may have one but it's not detected by your computer.

Tell me the result so we can check what to do next.

Will an optical drive from cq62 fit mine?


NO.

I sort of see your reasoning, but NO.
HP Compaq DC7700 Ultra-Slim Desktop PC, and Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC DVD burner drive?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-For-Compaq-Presario-CQ62-TS-L633-SATA-CD-RW-DVD-RW-Multi-Burner-Laptop-Drive-/300725349252?pt=US_CD_DVD_Blu_Ray_Drives&hash=item4604a0ab84

Until I compared both units I would have stated NO.

Now that I have THANK YOU. I just learned something,

http://www.amazon.com/HP-Compaq-DC7700-DC7800-DVD-ROM/dp/B004574PEG

Referring back to the photo view, of the Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC's DVD burner drive shown, the REAR view shows the connectors for the SATA power cable, and SATA data cable.

The connectors use the same L-shape design, and size that a SATA unit for a desktop computer, would use.

Case design looks to be similar also.

I believe you are Correct.

Pull out the battery and replace it again. Then power it on again. If the problem persists, you will need to have the motherboard, processor and RAM checked by appropriate technical personnel. Any of these could be responsible.

Bootsafe error on hp compaq notebook notebook pc while booting


Boot from the XP disc and press R at the first screen. This takes you into Recovery Console. Run these commands:

fixboot c:
fixmbr
exit

The computer will restart and hopefully it will load Windows.

If not, is your computer making clicking sounds?
