If resetting the bios does not work, you either got a nasty virus, or the hardware has an issue. my suggestion, if resetting bios is not the solution, backup your data and reinstall windows

You need to update the BIOS of the pc which would resolve this problem...
Here's the link for updating the BIOS Version of the system.
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38173.exe
Run the file which would shut the system down...
Restart the computer after a couple of minutes to check the functionality of the system..
Hope this works
Regards
KEN

SOURCE: hp dv2000 error code 104- unsupported wireless network device detected system halted

The user has not described the operating system in use.
However this problem generally occurs due to incompartible hardware. in this case it is ever stated. ie. Network interface Device. I suggest you disconnect the Network devices including cables, then try to reboot.
If not descibe how far the booting process gets and type of network hardware connected and operating system to your system

SOURCE: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. system halted. remove device and restart

The problem is caused by a card that is either not built for the machine or is corrupt. This is not a driver issue as this message comes up in the POST (Power On Self Test) this is before any driver is loaded. The reason that this happens when a network card is replaced is because HP/Compaq laptops have a whitelist of allowed cards built into the bios. If the cards vendor and device id don't match one on the list they don't allow you to run it. This is simply so you have to line the pockets of HP spare parts for somthing 10 times more than what it is worth. The only solution is to flash your bios with a modified one to remove the white list. This is a very risky operation and could brick your machine. If your getting this error and have not changed your card the likely reason is corrupt card or the bios has somhow become corrupt. Good luck on this issue.

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

DEFRAG C:

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com

Compaq Presario F730US doesn;t recognize the touchpad. Works with an externalmouse only. How do I get it or recognize the touchpad?


Your problem that you are experiencing is either hardware related or software related.

Hardware related in the sense that it is not connected or the actual touchpad it faulty.

Software related in the sense that the drivers need to be reloaded.

A technician will be able to diagnose the problem source, claim warranty support if you can!

Thumbs up!

Will not boot up


No lights or anything? Not booting up can be quite vague. If there are no lights then probably need new power supply/motherboard. If it were the battery then more than likely it would work when plugged in.
