I am trying to get a Compaq evo n800c laptop to recognize a new 40GB working drive. (Verified it with USB adapter). I also verified that the laptop recognizes old 20GB drives. With the new drive, the LED indicator doesn't turn off and the system does not recognize the drive. I have tried jumpering Cable select on the drive, with no luck. It has the latest bios F24. Any ideas?

you need to configure your Internet Protocol (IP) that synchronous the network. if you using WIFI you may need encryption code from your network provider.. beware on installing driver, it comes crashing in your machine.
right click "my computer", left click properties, select "Device Manager" Expand anything to do with "Network Adapters" and make sure there are no problems / exclamation marks / unknown devices. If there are, look for your wireless driver on.. http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_lang=en&h_cc=uk&cc=uk&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_pagetype=s-002&h_query=compaq+evo+n800&submit=Go+%C2%BB depending on your model. if this doesn't work go to www.hp.co.uk and download the driver then install it. If you can't detect any wireless networks, make sure your wireless card is activated - I believe this involves holding down FN (bottom left of keyboard) while then pressing F2 key at top. after this try try to search for wirless access points points.
Try setting your resolution to 1400x1050, or the max that is available. Also, use only 60Hz. Use the native resolution of the screen, otherwise the laptop will interpolate pixels and make text look fuzzy.
