Does your laptop have a wireless switch on the front? if so when you switch it on, does it stay orange? or go blue?

    if it stays orange you may have one of hp intermittent problems, if it goes blue and a pop up comes up on the right hand corner of your screen you should be in good shape. i have seen in some cases on these particular models where the wifi goes out permanently because of overheating issues. hopefully thats not your case

    good luck!

Bluetooth? How? Where?


Activate the Bluetooth functions of your Compaq laptop to connect your computer to external devices such as mice, keyboards and smartphones without the aid of a wire. Bluetooth technology allows devices from different manufacturers to exchange data, communicate and share files despite differences in operating software. Bluetooth antennae can cause a significant battery drain, so they are usually turned off by default. Turn on your Bluetooth to start searching for available devices in range of your computer.

Click "Start" and type "wireless" into the "Start Search" field. Click the "HP Wireless Assistant" icon in the list of results. Click the "Turn ON" button in the "Bluetooth" section to activate the Bluetooth antenna for your Compaq laptop.

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario CQ56 & the scroll area on my mouse pad isn't working. Can this area be turned off and if so, is there a way to turn it back on/unlock it?


The scroll pad on the touch pad needs a particular driver Synaptics Pointing Device Driver. This will actually run at the startup after installed which will activate the functionality of scroll on the touch pad. You can also actually turn this function on and off so this is a friendly user.
If you do not have that driver that comes with your laptop you can go here:

Good day.

Wireless is not working


what is your Windows OS? XP or Vista? to activate the wireless, press Fn F2 or just look for the wi-fi switch located above the Function keys or sometimes on the edge of the laptop with a picture of wireless signal or wave or antenna that resembles wireless.

ACTIVATE Wireless Link????


On some models check to make sure that the actual physical "switch" is turned on (if there is one). Usually located in the front or side of the laptop. Also, make sure your HOLDING the function key while pressing F2, otherwise it won't work. Hope this helps!
