    Thanks a lot, but there is no IEEE1394-Controller etc. to be found in the other areas of the Hardware-Device-Manager.

How can i get connected to wi-fi connection to compaq Evo N610c

I have one of these I use at home. You have three choices here. One is to get a USB wifi adapter which is cheapest, or get a PCMCIA adapter (the credit card looking things that slide into the side) or find one of the compaq wifi adapters for the 610. These are the slowest, and mount under the grey portion of the cover. There is one screw that holds it on and the cover then slides off. You can find these for sale on ebay.

The USB ones work but the usb ports are only USB1 so they are slower and take a noticable amount of overhead to use. The PCMCIA cards work the best.

Can u install afire wire card into a compaq presario c700

Yes, but it needs to be a Firewire PCMCIA card. If you do not have a spare PCMCIA slot then you need to remove the other PCMCIA device so you can insert the Firewire PCMCIA card when you need it.

Problem compaq Evo notebook N610c

The bluetooth driver for your laptop (and all other drivers for it) can be downloaded [HERE].

The name of the driver is "Support Software for Windows XP for Bluetooth MultiPort Module by Compaq" and can be found under the #driver - network" tab.

When you say Adobe pdf I assume you mean the PDF Reader?
Just go to and download it by clicking on d17a8b9.png

Laptop dispalys to monitor but laptop panel cannot be activate


Thanks for all the details..

The issue seems to be with the video card drivers here...

Go to and download the latest video card and the chipset drivers

before you download ...uninstall the nvidia chipset or any display software from program and features.

after you have installed the software.. go to the nvidia control panel > setup multiple monitors. and browse throughout the options >
It should be dual display and not extended display.

Also try with a new user profile...

Hope this helps..

You need a PCMCIA Wireless adaptor, (this model you are getting has two slots that it will fit in) - and you must make sure you have a wireless router in your house to broadcast a wireless signal for it to recieve.

Yes of course it is WiFi capable.
But it does not have WiFi built in.
Buy a USB or PCMCIA WiFi card and you will be sorted.

Usb port defective

It looks like they are part of the motherboard.
If they are physically damaged a competent repair shop can replace them probably a couple hours of labor ($120-$200 depending on the place. If they dont work at all then I would just buy a USB PCMCIA card which plugs into the side instead ($20-40).
