To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop/desktop XP Home, XPPro:
Reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.
This process is different for each computer manufacturer. If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then attempt to use the touchpad after each one.
A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard. The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop. The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop. Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again. Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad. Please take time to rate me
First thought check for the wireless switch. It is normally located on side of the laptop, some models have this button above the keyboard. Make sure it is turned on. You can normally tell if it is by the color of the light by the switch. Blue = on, Red = off.
If this is not the case answer the following question to help narrow the search:
1. Has the computer connected to this network before?
2. Can the computer connect to anyother network (e.i. at a friends house)
3. Were any updates install?
How dead is the hard drive. will it boot up sometimes or it never boots?
Does it make any noises or it runs as normal?
If it let's you boot sometime but wont let you use it for long enough to get your data the solution i would try would be any Linux live CD. Download Ubuntu bootable CD and boot from that. Try and access your hard drive then. See what you get. If your hard drive is really dead though there's nothing you can do yourself you need to get it some specialized service where they can recover HD's like this. Good luck
I'm sorry to say this sounds like a system board failure. On my HP DV200t, a very similiar issue occured, eventually only the led where you plug in the power cord would turn blue. I replaced the system board and all the issues went away.
Hope this helps, and I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
since this type of laptop is a very old one you should think about installing a Linux-system on it.
In case you're still having a genuine and unused MS Windows 98-setup disc you could also try to use that one to install and use your laptop with. In that case you should check before whether HP (they bought Compaq some years ago) is still providing drivers for the laptop and for its use with Windows 98 (which is not very likely).
Sounds like the power converter that is probably on the motherboard, so you may be looking at a new motherboard. Hard to tell without seeing it in person, but you can take it some place locally and they can troubleshoot power issues for you. GL!
compaq and hp bios password are easy to clear. all you have to do is unplug your laptop, remove all batteries, then you must open your laptop and locate the cmos battery and unplug it for about 3-5 seconds. then put it back together.
