    I am having the same problem. I'll never buy a Compaq or HP again.

  • Hubb1 Jun 12, 2008

    I contracted a virus (Malware) and had to re-install Windows XP and reformat the hard drive. Since then, it does not recognize the existence of the wireless modem. The switch on the front does no good. It's only the wireless. It will connect to the internet with an ethernet cable.

If your volume buttons don't work either this should help. Place your laptop on a table and press down on the lower right of the computer(under the arrows near the microphone and headphone symbol) or clamp down on the battery compartment (center). The blue light on the corner should illuminate, if it's off press the network button while putting pressure(the indented one on the right front edge) you shoud hear a double ping sound. I put a thick felt pad between the battery and the computer andnow everthing works. I know it sounds really STUPID but it works.

GOOD LUCK

Richard.

Richard hotkiss is correct; this is a mechanical issue with the R3000 buttons (especially the wireless button). I have also found that depressing the buttons with the flat end of a ballpoint pen seems to allow them to make contact. Whatever solution you use, you may find that "loosens up" the buttons just enough that they may work like new for a while.

Where is wireless connection switch on Compaq Presario R3000?


Well if u have the same exact one as myself.
The wireless button is on the front right near the corner. above it and on the corner is the wireless symbol. If its working it should be lit blue. push it and see if it lights up blue for a few seconds. You should get a wireless connection confirmation on the screen.

hope this helps you

Compaq presario wireless button no longer working


There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 wireless button and volume-down button where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds.
* Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established.
OR
* Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.

You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!

Wireless connection


Hi, what you will need is a PCMCIA wireless card or usb wireless stick, these can purchased pretty cheaply these days from the likes of ebay or your local computer shop should be able to sort you out. PCMCIA would be the one I would choose as these just slot into an empty bay and once installed, can be left there. Hope this helps, if not give me a shout and I'll see what else I can do. Si :)
