Can't find wireless device

My laptop recently crashed, so i got a disc made to save data, then ran the restore discs. Now the computer works, but can't find the wireless connection to get onto the internet. The wireless router on my desktop seems to be working. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Whaqt may have happened is that the driver for the wireless adapter may not have installed. Go to my computer, right click,properties>hardware tab>device mangager and lokk in the list for any yellow exclamation marks, if so this may well be your wireless card, unless you can see it listed in the wireless adapters line. If you cannot see it, the exclamation mark may be it, this means theres no driver. If you have not got the driver, try here http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/ftp/ftp.html When you have installed the driver, restart the pc and your adapter should be found and the driver installed automatically

Backup and reboot


If the OS won't load, remove the hdd, connect it with the USB convertor and copy the data files off to another disc. Then you can format with the system disc and start again.
If it will boot, save your data with a backup and then runs the restore programme in the OS.

How to repair hard drive


<span>Instructions</span> Things You'll Need: <ul> <li> <span>Operating software installation or build CD</span> </li> <li> <span>Boot-up disc</span> </li> <li> <span>System restore CD</span> </li> <li> <span>Backup tape</span> </li></ul> <ol> <li> Look for tell-tale signs that your computer is about to crash or fail. Extreme slowness, repeated blue screen and noise or clicking are sometimes signs that your computer hard drive is about to crash. When you hear the sound of clicking, scraping or grinding, immediately turn off or shut down your computer. Doing so will prevent any loss of data.<br /> </li> <li> Power down and then power up. Sometimes, hard drive crashes can be easily recovered by doing a power shutdown of the computer. Then, after waiting for a couple of minutes, power it back up again. The initial hard drive crash may not be too serious, but if it happens often, start performing a full system backup, if you haven't been doing so, to be able to recover your data should the inevitable happen.<br /> </li> <li> <span> <a><img src="repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.3-120X120.jpg" /></a> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/8f/3a/repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); PC cable or component connection </span> Ensure that your hard drive and other internal components are seated properly. If Steps 1 and 2 do not work, you may need to open your computer's CPU to check on some of the drive connections. Sometimes connections get dislodged, especially if you move your computer box often. The symptom will manifest as if the hard drive has crashed, giving you a "disk error" when you try to boot up your computer. First, turn off your computer and unplug it. Then remove the case of your computer box. Press on each connector to connect it properly. Put the cover back again, plug the computer and power it back up.<br /> </li> <li> <span> <a><img src="repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.4-120X120.jpg" /></a> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/8f/3a/repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.4-800X800.jpg'); }); Boot from CD drive with a boot disc </span> Insert your boot disc and try to boot up your computer using the disc. Once you are able to do so, you can reinstall your operating system. After installing your software, proceed to perform data recovery using your ghost CD or backup.<br /> </li> <li> Use an emergency repair disc to get your computer to work again. Then restore from the last known good configuration.<br /> </li> <li> Reinstall your operating system using the installation or system restore CD that came with your computer when you first purchased it. It will take you through a series of steps that include formatting your hard drive, which will then erase your data. Do this as a last resort.<br /> </li> <li> Recover your data by using a restore and recovery software or using your most recent backup after you have reinstalled the operating system in the previous step.<br /> </li> <li> Reinstall your applications that did not come with your computer when you bought it. Some examples would be Adobe Photoshop, anti-virus software and movie-making software.<br /> </li></ol> jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); <span>Tips & Warnings</span> <ul> <li> Call technical support if you are unsure of what to do. They can walk you through the important steps. You can also take your computer to a PC technician who, for a fee, will do a system restore and data recovery for you.</li> <li> Make it a habit, even if your computer is healthy, to do a complete backup so your important data will not be lost.</li> <li> Never attempt to open your computer without first powering it off to avoid being electrocuted.</li> <li> Do not open your hard drive case; the components are so sensitive that even a single speck of dust may erase your data.</li></ul>

All documents, programmes and data on the disc cannot be easily restored as they have been deleted. There are several companies that offer a restore service but can be very expensive.

Hi Jasmin...
You have one option.
If you cannot find the orginal operating disc for your computer, then you have an option of buying one on the internet.
You can go to www.compaq.com and order the system restore disk if you can't find the one that came with the computer.
Well Jasmin I got as far as I could about getting you a restore disc, but ran into a problem at the website..seems that there are different models of the v2000...you will have to finish, as I do not have the total infomation...
So I would recommend that you go to this webpage and you you will be at the point you have to choose the model of your compaq v2000...

Hello Sir i purchased 500 GB seagate 500GB free agent go hard disk 2 years before. recently i encountered the problems as follows. usb did not recognize the hard disk and it sound like sparking also white...


What sounds like sparking could be a head crash. If it is a head crash
then you are basically finished with the drive. They all go sometime.
The only safe way is to have another backup drive and keep a current second
copy of all information which you must save. Even this procedure is not
completely safe.
The hard drive should not make any noticeable sound (not more than a fan
sound). If it does, then it is probably dead or about to die. If the information
on the drive is IMPORTANT, then you can contact a data disc recovery site
which can help you with removing most of the data from a crashed disc.
I pioneered this recovery system idea many years ago and several companies
exist now to recover data from crashed discs.

Selling my Toshiba laptop and I want to restore it to default/factory settings. When this was bought did not come with a disc.


When your Toshiba Satellite laptop goes on the fritz, there are several instances where the best solution is to delete everything and start over. If your system frequently crashes or you can't remove a specific virus, you may want to restore the laptop back to original factory settings. While the easiest way to restore the system is to use the operating system restore disc, it is possible to restore the system without it. Each Satellite laptop also includes a hard drive recovery utility that lets you restore the operating system without the restore disc.

1. Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.

2. Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.

3. Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."

4. Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.

5. Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.

6. Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

Hi,

You could try using the system restore in windows. Under start-->acc-->system tools. Select a restore point and restore to that state. Just try to backup your data before doing this. Hope this helps!

If your laptop came with a "System Restore" disc, back up all your data first, then boot off the System Restore disc. That will return the laptop to the state that you initially received it in.

THE RESTORE PROCESS WILL WIPE OUT ALL YOUR DATA - so make sure you copy anything you want to keep to a USB stick, another computer, a thumb drive, or somewhere other than on your laptop.
