Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
Had wireless connection all the time, but it suddenly stopped! Have checked manuals, but can't find the solution.
There is switch on the front side, but pushing it does not make any difference. Also Led indicator does not light.
What to do? Please help...!! Thanks
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.

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.
