Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Compaq Presario R3000 laptop, Windows XP Home Edition SP3, I have a bluetooth configuration icon in the control panel. I have never used this feature in the years I have had this PC but would like to. The problem is, when I try to open by clicking on the icon, I get the alert message, "Bluetooth device not found. Please verify that your bluetooth device is properly connected and turned on." I cannot figure out if I have the bluetooth capability on my PC or not. Any help out there?

I cannot turn on my bluetooth on compaq presario cq60 is there a switch or something?


If there is bluetooth hardware present on your computer, click on the Start Menu and type Bluetooth in the search box, this should present you with what you may do with your Bluetooth.
Or alternatively if you are using Windows XP, Look for the Bluetooth Devices section in the Control Panel.

Lost SP3 windows xp home edition version 2002 how do i get it back or do i need to I have automatic updates turned on when I look at programs beside it ,there no file size? also how do I fix error...


If you mean no file size showing up in "Add / Remove Programs"
thats because it's integrated / uninstallable but registered.

Error: 0x80070005, is that when you access "Microsoft Update"?

As for repairing SP3 Read more here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3

and you probably have to go for option:
"Manually installing SP3 using the Microsoft Download Center or a CD"
Good Luck

Unable to install Audio driver


In the control panel sound icon, are the drivers correct? OR Try uninstalling SP3 if yuu have done so and then reinstall the driver. Have you deleted the device in the <device manager> and let windows find the device and install drivers?
