Question about HP Compaq 6735s Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq 6735s wifi button is not turning on.. it will not turn blue.. the sound it makes when it should be turning on is not the same as when it does yet when i "turn it off" it says its disabled and i can remove the device. I went to bios and set my permissions to wlan and lan can switch (enabled) i downloaded new firmware for it and still the same problem persists. also worth mentioning the wireless menu where i can auto connect to different sources is not showing at all. I really appreciate anyone taking the time to read this and help me out.

    by wireless driver do you mean network adapters/marvell yukon 88e88042 pci-e fast ethernet controller? and if so then before i delete it how am i going to re install it if it is via cd these are the cds i have : os cd, supplemental software, app and driver recovery CD, app and driver recovery DVD. also mind you this is windows xp. And if you can go into detailed instructions that would make this a lot easier for me im not extremely savvy on computers... doing things like "go to: mycomputer/c:/whateverelse/etc"..will help me a lot more.

Cannot find the wireless switch. Can you tell me where it is located?

The 2nd button is the wifi on off switch. The 1st button is the indicator
You need to be in a wifi enable environment to set this function.
