Your statement is confusing but I guess what you need to do is download the latest firmware and update your wireless. Otherwise, I say get a PCI wireless card because your current wireless is defective even if you reformat the laptop.

Hi Helen,
Check the color of the light for the touchpad.
If it is enabled, it should be blue in color.
If it is disabled, the color will be amber.

If the color is amber, you can enable the touchpad with the button just near to that light.

Hope that helps.

Let me know if you have further problems.

Compaq presario v6000 computer does not detect hard drive storage

The hard disk may be faulty or it just needs reseating to make proper connection.
Reseat the hard drive and boot up your laptop. If it does not boot up then go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
If the BIOS deos not detect the hard drive then most likely it is faulty. In this case to get your laptop working again, replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Presario's device drivers and your programs.

Won't stay connected to internet

that might take an uninstall and reinstall of either the ethernet drivers, or the operating system. I haven't heard that, but I have had machines that aren't as reliable in the wireless as they could be. it's possible that something in the workings of it has gone haywire, but it sounds like an OS issue.

Back up everything you want to keep and reinstall the OS if possible.

I need for my compaq presario v6000.

You can get the wireless drivers in the laptop itself. U need to type in the start search as recovery manager and when the window is opened, click on the advanced options and select the option hardware driver installation. Search for the sound driver and select it and it get re-installed. If this doesnt work try to go to and select support and drivers and enter the product number of the laptop and follow the onscreen instructions.
Thanks and Regards
