Question about HP Compaq Presario F730US Notebook
Recently after a year of use my laptop will not connect to the wireless internet. I have updated my drivers, tried rolling them back, looked in my bios configuration, etc. etc. My computer does not recognize the wireless adapter and I cannot figure out why. The wireless adapter does not appear int eh device manager. I appreciate any possible solutions.
I used to slave over this exact laptop for days trying to fix the same wireless issue over and over and over again. It's very rarely the wireless adapter. More often than not, your motherboard is bad. Your best bet, should you have an extended warranty on the POS, is to contact HP. The should ship you a box and everything, you send it in, they fix, etc. HOWEVER, if you DO NOT still have a warranty on it, throw it in the trash. Even if you tried to call them about it, you would not get too far, and they would try to charge you a whopping $390 for the MB. Even if you tell them it is a wireless issue, you are looking to spend $340 (they **** rape you).
I am currently in the same boat. If you don't have the money to fix the computer, try turning it on for about an hour or so and letting it warm up. After it is a little warm, restart it over and over again, eventually the wireless should be detected. You just can't shut the darn thing off...ever again.
