The wireless button at the top of the keyboard doesn't work.
I'm trying to add my compaq nx6325 to my wireless network, I have been told that it is wireless capable without buying a usb adaptor but everytime I press the button on the keyboard the light doesn't come on to say its ready for use. Any ideas how to activate the built in wireless connector???

What wireless adapter do you have ? Broadcom, Atheros, etc ? I also had some trouble installing Broadcom on my Compaq nx6325 on Ubuntu but Ubuntu has some good support sites... Here is an example for Mint for Broadcom drivers ... http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/379
By the keyboad being locked, you mean nothing is happening when you try to type?
Try powering off and on the system, and while it's powering on (before it gets to the windows logo) tap the F8 key repeatedly. If it brings up a menu, choose to Boot in Safe Mode. If you are able to type in here, then it's a software issue within Windows and we can move onto the next step so just let me know. Otherwise, if typing still doesn't work, looks like it could be a hardware issue and you would need to get a new keyboard for it.
You gain access to the bios battery by lifting the keyboard. First, undo the external memory cover ( 1 screw) on the bottom of the laptop. Then you will see 2 screws which hold the keyboard down - undo these. Turn the laptop right way up, open it up and move back the 4 small keyboard retaining latches (located at the top edge of the keyboard). The keyboard can now be carefully tilted up by its top edge to reveal the motherboard with the bios battery there in the middle.
There are many reasons why wireless doesn’t work but lets look at it step by step
How it works is that there’s a card inside your laptop which detects networks “wireless only” that are in your house and near you like neighbours.
The most common mistake is “the button” there is bound to be a button either
On the side, the rear, the front of the laptop or even near the keyboard it usually has
A dot with signal lines that button switch on and off the wireless device so make sure its on and then wait 10 second for the signal to appear.
There is no button? Right then there’s a keyboard shortcut to switch it on and off
You must first press and hold the “fn” button or the function button then find the wireless key which is either “f8” or “f4” it varies from model to another but it always has the wireless logo on it and it is always one of the f keys.
Didn’t help? It could be you’re running multiple utilities to run your wireless, you either have to use windows utility which is normaly in your task bar but if that’s not working then another utility is using it, so find in your programs list “wireless utility” or “belkin utility” which usually does the same.
Didn’t help? Its getting more serious, makesure your driver is installed for the wireless, if you go to the device manager and then to the network area and there makesure your wireless drvice is enabled “no red cross on it” or else if you cant find a wireless device in there then it means your wireless card is faulty and need an expert looking at it.
It is good practice to re-install the wireless driver to fix most issues.
