Question about HP Compaq Presario F730US Notebook

1 Answer

My Compaq laptop Presario F700 series, Vista and AMD64AnthlON X2

My Compaq after a certain software or security update is updated I have no access the internet. It will sometimes say I have a connection, but wont get on the internet.The only time I will get a connection is if I restore it to a time before a series of updates occur. I don't understand this at all. Even if I use a ethernet cord or go wireless, still no internet for me. And I scanned it for any viruses or trojans, but nothing pops up at all.

    Was it a SP3 update?

    What were the updates? Check in Programs and Features under Installed Updates.

    Set windows update to manual and download each one seperately til you find the offending update.

Microsoft security updates have disabled wireless cards in the past, preventing systems that connect via wireless card to connect. One way around this is to revert to a point before the update or uninstall the particular update that is causing the problem through "Add Remove Programs" and usually within a few days Microsoft will have an update with a fix available.
Though this is the first I've heard of such a problem recently, it's not unheard of.

Sounds like you've got a bad driver from Windows update which is not a first. Firstly turn off automatic windows updates so it doesnt auto-update again. Where you re-installed the drivers from in Device Manager choose uninstall and also there will be an option to delete the files associated with the driver, get rid of those. Heres a link straight to the HP website http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=au&lang=en&product=3636382 there is 3 drivers to choose from either look in device manager or it doesnt matter if you try the wrong 1 it just wont find the hardware. If this all works fine turn back on windows update but choose let me decide when to download and instal then uncheck the wireless update, this will hide it from all future updates. Please let me know how it all goes i still have a few more ideas if not. Cheers from Scott

Presario f700 drivers


You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
