Question about HP Pavilion zd7000 zx5000 zv5000 presario 3000,R3000 Series 120W Laptop AC Adapter-360699-001 CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks. Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is there a way to turn on wireless without the hard switch? Or is there something I can do to fix the switch? I have an HP pavilion zx5000. The wireless switch does not work.

Turn wireless on

The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up
through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no
additional hardware is required.

Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the
right, then let go.

The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on
the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle;
In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."

It might also say "Open network and sharing

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.

Click to highlight the network and click the
"Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up
the router (if applicable).

If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway
page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to
see if security is enabled.

If it is, type in a new key and enter the same
number for the wireless network.

My dell studio laptop is only a few months old, but i wont burn a cd properly it stops half way through? thanks

Welcome to the world of DELL. This is a known issue with all models of dell laptops(including my Inspiron 1525). It is obviously a problem with the burning laser and the easiest way to fix it would be to get it replaced since its already under a warranty. You can also try burning at a lower speed, keeping the laptop still while burning and cleaning the lens. I for one would not buy another Dell laptop.

Presario 900 laptop what internet dongle do i need to connect to internet.

that completely depends on what kind of internet service you have.
The laptop has a Ethernet connector so, if you have a internet connection in your home you should be able to connect it with a wire to the router or the modem and it should work.

Where do i switch on the wireless on my laptop, COMPAQ NV9000


I was unable to find your model notebook, but most are turned via 3 ways:

1: Wireless Switch on the side or front of your pc.

2. You can do so from the control panel under wireless settings. (XP/Vista)

3. HP/Compaq Assistance software installed on your pc. This can be found by clicking on the start menu, and scrolling until you see something like "Compaq Utilities". Use this to configure and start your wireless network.

Call Dell if under warranty. Start shopping for a replacement hdd if outside of warranty. You'll need
your OS disks that came with computer (hopefully). If you don't have OS/recovery disks, you can get
them from Dell or even using somebody elses (match version with sticker on your laptop).

Check the hdd connection underneath laptop - make sure cable is not loose, etc.

Probably safe to say your data is gone unless you're willing to spend $$.

Why has my Compaq required three system restores in six months?

Hey I guess, that maybe, maybe its the battery that is still hooked up is the one messing. It could be that when battery dies its electrical becomes short circuited looks like the battery will function as shorting wire thats why even you plug the cord it will eventually be shorted. And now, no power to battery then power supply gets shorted then no power to boot your system.

I suggest so should replace the battery with a new one.

How do I turn the wireless on the Dell Inspirion 8200

there is no on-off switch for the wireless on the dell inspiron 8200 if I recall correctly. Make sure:

1. The mini-PCI slot (might actually have to open the little door on the back of the laptop) contains a wireless card


2. right click on "my computer", properties, hardware tab... device manager. See if there are any devices listed (yellow "!") that do not have drivers installed. Go to and download drivers for your wireless card and install them.

HP Pavilion Laptop zv5000 wont power on. NOT power cord problem.

I think your motherboard has gone bad, even though you hear a fan working, its just on a hot wire on the motherboard.

Wireless Problems!

The computer looks for the cable because wireless is not working.

If wireless card is usb try removing laptop battery, unplugging power adapter and wifi cards, connect in five minutes and see if it works

If it still does not work, reinstall wireless card drivers.
If you have a disk reinstall them from disk.
If you lost the disk download drivers from the Internet, post model on fixya to get the link.

If the wireless card does not work after reinstalling drivers then it is probably faulty.

Note: if you use laptop internal wireless, usually you need to activate a switch to get it working.
