Here is the problem, the Nvidia Chipset needs to be reflowed. Now if you have the right tools this an easy job, simply look up the reflow temp range and do it. I used a hot air SMD rig wrapped the board in aluminum foil several times, cut out the hole for the Chipset and slowly heated it up I used a digital thermometer and watched the temp range, at 300 F I turned it down and began to cool it. When completed I let it sit until cool. I pulled the thermal pad and replaced it with a penny. (I cleaned the penny, heatsink, and chipset, and lightly applied artic silver to both sides of the penny, and the onto the processor and put it all back together. When I booted the system recognized the wireless and has been working for about 6 hours now, I have moved it around held it under the case and all seems well. If its between the bin and trying it yourself, try it. a cheap heat gun can be had for as little as $9.

Whats the error? what operating system are you using - xp vista, etc.. if you would like to reinstall the driver you need to first download the driver from the compaq website, clicking on support and finding the wireless driver. then disconnect from the internet, navigate to control panel, system, hardware, hardware manager. find your wireless device under network adapters, right click it, click uninstall, then reboot. when your system is back up windows will give you a message about found new hardware.. click cancel, then run the setup from the package you downloaded from the compaq website.

Compaq f700 wifi not working

Try to change your wifi card to Broadcom wifi card. If problem still happen, you need to reflow your GPU Nvidia with hot air gun around 30 seconds.

Compaq presario f500 wireless not working

Hello, I too had the same problem: wifi card does not exist in the network switch and light orange. I solved it this way: I unscrewed the screws at the memory compartment where it also houses the Wifi card, next is the battery backup of the bios, I pulled gently on the battery connector and I shorted the two pins for 1 minutes, I reconnected the plug closing the compartment and access your PC and Wi-Fi switch has returned the little light blue and WiFi networks are detected. I hope that you too can be solved in this way. Hello Michael

Wireless device switch not working, stays orange and not blue

you probably got a nvidia chip set and that chip is going bad on your motherboard. it's pretty common failure on the 443875-001 hp/compaq motherboards. Sometimes letting the laptop cool down the wifi will come back; but it will go out again!
A usb wifi card should solve this problem; otherwise you'll have to replace the motherboard ($150 + labor).

Wireless does not work my computer does not read wireless base station

turn on the wireless button ON...if still the problem exists then re-install the wifi driver from the motherboard drivers & utilities cd/dvd given by your compaq distributor. Then you will find your wireless connection working properly.

Wireless connection will not work on Compaq Presario f700

It happens a lot, mine has a problem that sometimes it will connect, and sometimes it won't, and other people's just won't work at all. I thought mine's wasn't ever gonna work again, so I decided to buy a USB port wifi external connector, and that's what I'm gonna use when this one in this compaq finally dies. I recommend you do the same, it might save you some bucks since my best guess is that installing a new on the laptop would cost a lot more.

My Compaq Presario F700's Wi-Fi stopped working

can you check if the driver is properly installed?
- go to start, point to computer, right click then click manage, click device manager and see whether you have an exclamation mark or "X" sign on one of your devices. if yes, you need to un-install first the driver, restart machine, re-install the driver properly.

Wireless internet access not working; getiing orange led

Anyone having a wlan/wireless problem with a compaq F730us, please report it to HP corporate headquarters and HP/Compaq. The problem is with the mainboard, its a manufacturer problem. Only HP/Compaq can fix this for free, but we have to let them know that the F700 series is also having the same hardware issues as the f500 and other series. Here is a link to hp website so you can see that hp is aware of the problem, we just need to get the f700's added to the list.
Here is also a website for people everywhere experiencing the same problems w/compaq wireless not working. HP/compaq needs to correct this.

Compaq presario f700 can't locate netgear router

Make sure the WiFi is activated, and that the wireless is not disabled.

When you go into network, is the wireless network there?

If this does not help, write back and we will go from there.
