RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, ON REBOOT, CLICK F10 WHEN YOUR CHANGE BOOT OPTIONS SCREEN COMES UP. YOU MUST PRESS F10 QUICKLY OR IT WILL LOAD WINDOWS AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN. ONCE YOU GET INTO THE BIOS SETUP UTILITY GO TO SYSTEM CONFIGURATION, SCROLL DOWN TO BOOT OPTIONS CLICK ENTER. GO DOWN TO INTERNAL NETWORK ADAPTER BOOT AND ENABLE IT. GO TO EXIT AND SAVE.. THIS SHOULD SOLVE IT.

HP Compaq Presario V6030 usb ports don't work, is this something I can fix with drivers or can they be replaced.


First try these steps
1.Remove all the usb devices connected, then go to device manager and under Universal Serial Bus controlers uninstall all the usb root hub and then restart the computer
2. If it still doesnt work do a bios update from hp.com for your notebook and then restart and do a bios default too.
3. If these steps doesnt resolve the problem do a recovery and even after recovery the NBs usb ports doesnt work then mother board needs to be replaced as the usb ports are fixed in it.

Need Network Controller 4 both Compaq Presario 2100 2500 Laptops


You have to install the WiFi card with an Installer before it is recognized by device manager... go to the link below, and download the WiFi driver and install as Administrator. You will need to know your exact model number to do so.. Do NOT just get a WiFi driver that will NOT work, you must get installer version.

Update bios on compaq presario m2000?


There are usually two ways with Compaq's

One is with a DOS boot floppy

The other is via a windows utility

both are usually available from the support section on the Compaq website.

Heads up only do this on mains power not battery !
DON'T stop it or switch off for ANY reason

If you knew how many crashed bios questions come through Fixya.

Check the text file or only as to what problems that bios fixes and if they don't apply to you then don't do it.

Most bios updates fix very minor issues nowadays

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.
