There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 buttons, (especially the wireless button) where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds.
* Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established.
OR
* Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.

You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!

Where is the wireless switch on the compaq presario laptop


It is usually on the right front corner, just below the edge of the cover/screen. Look at the laptop from the front, and follow the edge all the way to the right. At the very corner of the right front of this laptop, you will see a tiny icon in blue and silver. Push it in once, and to its right, there will be a blue and silver icon light up. That is your wireless switch.

Where is wireless connection switch on Compaq Presario R3000?


Well if u have the same exact one as myself.
The wireless button is on the front right near the corner. above it and on the corner is the wireless symbol. If its working it should be lit blue. push it and see if it lights up blue for a few seconds. You should get a wireless connection confirmation on the screen.

hope this helps you

Presario r3000 wireless not working nor is light on


If your volume buttons don't work either this should help. Place your laptop on a table and press down on the lower right of the computer(under the arrows near the microphone and headphone symbol) or clamp down on the battery compartment (center). The blue light on the corner should illuminate, if it's off press the network button while putting pressure(the indented one on the right front edge) you shoud hear a double ping sound. I put a thick felt pad between the battery and the computer and now everthing works. I know it sounds really STUPID but it works.

GOOD LUCK
