Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "FujitsuSupport" or "Amilo Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for manuals on the site.
maybe your wireless card is bad. Try this, remove the power cord and battery, turn the laptop over and remove the cover that is over the wireless. Hopefully the wirless is under the bottom, sometimes it might be under the keyboard or plamrest.
Anyway, remove the two antenna cables from the wireless card, and also remove the wireless card out of the slot that it fits it. Then after a few seconds put the wifi card back into the slot, attach the antennas, put the cover back on and reboot. Sometimes reseating helps.
it might need the ballast you can take the cover ring off around the screen and on the bottom of the screen there will be a green little bar about the size of a stick of gum.. it will have a few screws holding it on.. find the part numbers and search ebay. i found one for mine for five bucks.. it fixed it and thats what I call a kool FIX ! .. hope this is the solution and the fix 4 ya ... jay
the bottom doesn't come off......you have to remove the cover on the screen hinge and remove the keyboard and monitor to isolate the "bottom" of the unit. After you have removed the panel on the hinge, you can unscrew the keyboard and detach the screen. At this point the bottom can be removed by taking off the main boards and other connected components.

Using a screwdriver, You'll be able to open a cover on the bottom of the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery which will clear the power on password. Try to find the laptops Maintenance and Service guide online if you're unsure of how to do this. Google should find it for you.
Unfortunately I think HP warranty policies state that you can only change by yourself the components covered by dedicated doors on the chassis bottom, such as the hard disk drive and RAM(obviously your upgrade parts are not covered by hp warranty and not supported by hp support). So regaldess of how complicated the damage is to fix(most of the led indicators are soldered on the motherboard) you need to call the HP support and they will fix it, they are usually fast and you will have your laptop back in a week or so...otherwise you will probably lose your warranty if you try to locate and replace the fuse,replace the LEDs, replace the connectors... it might be a connector plugged backwards but you should not directly try to fix it.
Before you pull apart your laptop, check the male connector and power cord of the adapter, check it with a multimeter and or plug it into another Compaq. You could have a broken wire in the power cord, it could save you a lot of work.
To pull apart the laptop, remove the battery, hard drive and CD drive first.
Then remove all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, plus the screws on the back that holds the LCD's hinge to the laptop base.
Take a note of where the screws come from, some may be shorter that others.
The remove the keyboard (the screws should already been removed from the bottom of the laptop).
Carefully remove the plastic cover next to the base of the LCD screen, This may also cover the hinges, if necessary fold the screen flat to enable you to carefully pry this cover up and off.
The plastic top cover is clip fastened to the bottom of the case, carefully prize apart from one side and gradually work around the other sides.
You can now remove the LCD, there are two connects attached to the motherboard, unclip these.
The motherboard is under the keyboard and plastic top cover, there are screws securing it to the plastic base, remove these and you should be able to free it from the base.
Now you can solder/fix the power connector.
I suggest you use a temperature controlled soldering iron.
Don't use too much force, you might crack the plastic parts.
Best of luck and have fun.
