Question about HP Compaq Presario v3000z Notebook
There is a known problem and being out of warranty isn't the end of it. You may be able to get them to fix it or try this yourself.
There are Vista and XP versions of the installers and the drivers and the bios is different depending on whether you have an AMD or an Intel processor, so be careful which items you attempt. Good luck.
On mine, I had to update the bios, uninstal the old hp wireless assistant and uninstall the wireless driver from My Computer (right mouse click) Properties - Device Manager - Network Adapters, then I installed the latest HP wireless assistant from above page and the latest Intel wireless adapter from above. Check the position of your wireless switch on the front lip of the laptop. One way should make the light go blue, for on, the other shows amber for off. If you are in the bad state pre fix, both positions will show amber. HP assistant will show the device is disabled, but you won't be able to do anything for it as there will likely be yellow tags on all the network adapters.
Mine works now, but I'm having other issues with installing SP1 for Vista. Anyway, hope this helps
