    There are about 20 different versions of the V6000 available....will need a more specific model number to identifiy what driver you need. Compaq may have several different wireless versions available for that model. Is it V6000AU or V6000T CTO or V6000TX CTO or V6000Z CTO ?

It seens like you have some software like a antivirus who's bloking you from internet. if this problem ocured not long ago. i will recomend to to a system restore from a date when your pc was working fine.
if you are running windows xp , click on start, all programs, accessories, system tools and then click on SYTEM RESTORE. follow the instruction on screen and it will be IT.

if the software is a virus o spyware o malware you need to install, a new antivirus up to date.

in the worsk case you will need to save all your data , picture music and al the stuff you want to keep and RESTORE your computer from FACTORY SETTINGS from the cd provided with your laptop, o see manual to reinstall windows if you laptop does not have a disk.

Hi Helen,
Check the color of the light for the touchpad.
If it is enabled, it should be blue in color.
If it is disabled, the color will be amber.

If the color is amber, you can enable the touchpad with the button just near to that light.

Hope that helps.

Let me know if you have further problems.

If happens you already replace the card and still doing same thing, It only means that the slot for the card is faulty, Its already a motherboard problem. But try updating the BIOS and see if its going to fix the problem, if not its the motherboard that have a problem.

Hi there I have a compaq presairo F500 and the wireless internet switch at the front of the computer is not working, its not picking up any wireless connections. the light stays amber, its not picking up...

Some HP computers I've seen recently, and Compaq is owned by HP, had an issue where the wireless card was not soldered down correctly. Over time the general wear and tear laptop computers face caused this wireless card to slowly work its way out, disconnecting it from the computer.
I would contact Compaq, or Best buy (depending where you bought it) and check if your warranty is still good. If it is, they should fix this for you. Otherwise your next best option is to buy a USB wifi adapter from, or It is unfortunately not possible for you to re-solder the wireless card in unless if you are very comfortable with working with delicate electronics.
