First thing would be to see if you have any antenna sticking out of the back of your desktop.

If not, then right-click on "My Computer", choose "Manage" and go down to "Device Manager".
Scroll down to the "Network Adapters" section. Click on the "+" sign and see if you have any device installed that has the word "wireless" in it.
If so, voila!
If not, you will have to add a wireless network card, something like this. I assume that this is the case, because desktops usually do not have wireless pre-installed.

It should be listed in the Device Manager usually under Networks if you have one. Or look under Network Connections.

I just bought a Compaq presario cq56-110us notebook and want to know if this model has a web cam,as you can tell i don't know much about computers.


It has all the features and built in mic,but sorry it has no built in web cam.You can go online(internet) and google it and it will direct you to many sites with the review of your new laptop.But my suggestion is go directly to the suggested compaq web site and there you will find the technical specs of you laptop.

I am very disappointd with compaq service. this is my 4th compaq computer and I am now told that I will have to pay $33 for advice to fix a small software poblem. The computer is brand new (4 months old)...


Simmer down Frank.......You haven't been ripped off. Unfortunately, no manufacturer will offer free support for 3rd party software. If it's their software, 30-90 days support max. Believe it or not, some of the changes that have happened to windows since you got your computer may have caused the software glitch and that is no fault of Compaq. That being said, their customer service is rather atrocious sometimes. Let me know what the problem is and we'll get you fixed up :)

<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is corrupt or missing


See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.

Let me know if I can help you further.

Screen resolution


This is a simple case of Display drivers not properly installed. I'm sure that the Compaq website has driver downloads available from their website. In this case, I'm pretty sure that any language on the drivers will work.
