Re: wireless connection

Hi, what you will need is a PCMCIA wireless card or usb wireless stick, these can purchased pretty cheaply these days from the likes of ebay or your local computer shop should be able to sort you out. PCMCIA would be the one I would choose as these just slot into an empty bay and once installed, can be left there. Hope this helps, if not give me a shout and I'll see what else I can do. Si :)

I want to upgrade the memory on my compaq presario r3000 laptop this is not a problem as I have located the memory cards. However it recommends a bios upgrade and this is a minfield for the uneducated like...

No disrespect but it is apparent that you do not posess the required skilss to perform a BIOS upgrade.

Even with a step by step guide it would be easy to brick your BIOS and leave your Lappy unusable.

If I were you I would pay a professional to do it.

Where is wireless connection switch on Compaq Presario R3000?

Well if u have the same exact one as myself.
The wireless button is on the front right near the corner. above it and on the corner is the wireless symbol. If its working it should be lit blue. push it and see if it lights up blue for a few seconds. You should get a wireless connection confirmation on the screen.

hope this helps you

Laptop won't stay on

it might as well be a internal problem related to power or loose contacts with RAM or the power chords internally.
Better to go to the technician in this case.
Your first Battery would have been fine too..
