If it is not the wireless card, it is either the motherboard or the HDD. If you want to spend the money on a new HDD, then it is worth a shot, however 99.9% of the time, when there is any sort of wireless issue with the computer, it is most definitely the motherboard.

You can test the HDD by going into the BIOS, if it passes, then it is, without any doubt, the motherboard, if it fails, though, you aren't any further than when you started.

Also, (and I know you ran a diagnostic on the MB, however, half the time, those are hardly accurate) you can test the motherboard by overheating the computer. Not to the point that it combusts, of course, but just run as many programs as you can to get the computer as hot as you feel it is safe, when it has reached this point, unplug it/take out the battery. Try to restart it immediately. If it doesn't come back on, or the lights flash then go off, or something like that, again, it's the motherboard. But, again, this is not fool proof.

Your best bet would be to guess it's the motherboard. It will save a lot of headaches and money in the long run.

If you still have your warranty on the thing, call HP and send it in. Otherwise, you are looking at up to $400 dollars to get it fixed/for the part.

If you can use the cable connection
you can search for a new driver for the lan card for vista here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/pfinder?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&tool=&query=F700+#N284

Try using the auto detect function it will tell what model
you have.To get the right driver.

Also try use the microsoft update function
in your start button.

Hope this was helpfull.

The reason it shows the compaq logo is because that is the motherboard you have installed. HP is just your case if I am reading your question properly. Did you custom build this? Which processor is in it? Probably the wireless card isn't being recognized because of your 64 bit operating system. Windows 7 has a lot of hardware driver problems right now.

Compaq F700 Battery live very less


Giri,
Its normal, generally it comes with 80-90 min. You can use HP Power management to optimize the use of battery. Making screen less bright will increase the power backup.

Thanks
