Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
I have VISTA and now wireless netwrok says no adapter or drivers for wireless network. Ehternet local access working ok.
Any suggestions please help.
The only thing that worked ws to use hp's recovery mgr to set it back to factory condition and blue light came back on for the wireless. problem is, after restarting the computer, it wont work again. called hp, the guy was a d**k and said it isnt their problem but theyd be happy to troubleshoot for $100 bucks. i told him that everyone else online is having same issue and he said that what everyone is talking about online isnt my same prob because my f700 was made afterward. ok.. i guess im imagining the same exact problem as everyone else online.
just dont buy this laptop. not worth it. im gonna go out and get a usb wireless adapter to see if that fixes the prob. this laptop ws a gift or else i wouldnt have it. i know better than to buy hp/compaq products.

You are f****d. This is a hardware problem, my sister-in-law is having the same problem. I probably have to figure out how to order a replacement part. Hopefully the wireless card isn't directly soldered into the mainboard. But I imagine it is. Which would mean an entire mainboard replacement. Which would mean buying a new laptop since it's not worth the replacement.
Next time. Get a mac. I'll tell her the same.

I just had the same problem today and fixed it with HP tech support. Try this: at bootup, hit F10 to go into BIOS mode. At the BIOS screen, hit F9 which loads the factory setup. Exit and Save. They asked me to reload the Broadcom driver and Nvidia driver but I didn't have to. My was a F700 running windows Vista. Good luck.
