If you can download then I expect the wireless bit is working. Try re-booting with an Ethernet lead plugged in, download the latest drivers from Hp and clicking on the downloaded name will install the driver. Ensure you choose the correct driver!

I have no drivers for my compaq presario driver is installed

Hi gem,

Which operating system are you using? What drivers are you missing when you get into "Device Manager" (assuming you're using some version of Windows?

Above is the link to Compaq... you have to select your specific model of CQ42 (look for the sticker under your laptop), choose your operating system and download the relevant ones.

I often install drivers with the motherboard first (most likely an Intel chipset), then all the rest such as graphics card (video drivers), audio, networking, wireless, modems, card readers, etc.

Hope this helps!

You can go to:

select your operating system

go tot he category Driver - Network

You'll see a list of drivers, look for wireless. If you see several and you don't know whick one you have, You can try installing each of them. Usually, if it's not the correct driver, it would not install at all.

My laptop model is HP Compaq Presario CQ42. I cannot activate my web-camera. The bluetooth is also not working

1) Select your exact model of CQ42 (there are many of them) from this list: (and download all drivers)
2) If you can't find the drivers manually, download and install a free driver updater software, e.g. - let it scan and update all your missing drivers.

I have laptop compaq cq42 but webcam can not use

HP Compaq has several different models for the CQ42 notebook. If you are haveing issues with the webcamera my first suggestion is to re-install the driver and software for it. I have included the web link to HP Compaq support page. You have two options, 1) Is to input your product name or product number. The product number is the best way to get the correct software and drivers for you notebook. If you dont know your product number there are instruction on the support page that will show you how to find your product number  2) Have the support site automaticly detect it for you.
