Compaq presario m2000 blue wireless light doesn't

The wireless feature on a Compaq Presario M2000 worked fine until I accidentally pressed the blue wireless button. Now I can't get the blue wireless light to light up and connect to the internet through the wireless feature. This happened a few months ago, but after I pressed the blue button a few times the light came back on and the unit connected to the internet OK. This time I pressed the button about 100 times and nothing. I changed the power button board. Didn't help. How can I test the next possible solution? What should I try next?

    The blue button problem is SOLVED. I used the information you all sent me. I went to the Devise Manager on the Control Panel and reinstalled the driver. It worked great. Thanks everyone for your help. Dennis

You should have re-installed the Driver for the Wireless Card, you can do that by going to Control Panel, than clicking on System and Maintenance, and than going to Back Up and Restore, go to Repair Windows using System Restore, you can re-install your Driver that way or go to www.hp.com and go to Support, enter your Model #, and you can re-download your Driver from there.

This happened to my Compaq laptop, i googled it and they said it was a known problem, if under warantee they will fix it, but they break alot.
I ended up buying a cheap wifi dongle for £10 from amazon.

Someone here has a fix, it may be worth a try

SOURCE: update bios on compaq presario m2000?

There are usually two ways with Compaq's

One is with a DOS boot floppy

The other is via a windows utility

both are usually available from the support section on the Compaq website.

Heads up only do this on mains power not battery !
DON'T stop it or switch off for ANY reason

If you knew how many crashed bios questions come through Fixya.

Check the text file or only as to what problems that bios fixes and if they don't apply to you then don't do it.

Most bios updates fix very minor issues nowadays

Compaq M2000 turns on using charged laptop battery but doesn't charge or turn on when using power adaptor, with or without the laptop battery


1) The AC adapter should ALWAYS be plugged into the laptop FIRST, then plugged into AC power. If not, this could create a voltage spike.

2) Let's look at the DC Power Jack, for the Compaq Presario M2000 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.notebookparts.com/products/description.php?II=9741

The DC Power Jack is mounted to a removable circuit board.
Enlarging the view of the jack, shows us there is an Inductor.

The small 'can' standing up on the power board. This chipset could have gone south. (Bad)

How to know? Replace it, or dig out your dual trace oscilloscope. See if the Inductor works.

Could also just be cracked solder joints, of the DC Power Jack, TO that small circuit board. Solution would be to resolder it/them.

[ I WOULD however, search for a BETTER price, than listed in the link above, IF available ]

DC Power Jack is in good shape, soldered tight to the motherboard, and ruled out as the problem?
(Since you know the AC adapter is good)

Then the problem would be the Inductor on that power board, or power correcting chipset.

What one is it? Dunno.
DO KNOW is has J leads on the bottom.
CAN give examples, and perhaps you can identify using them.

My Compaq Presario M2000 wifi light is "On", but


While logged into the router, Turn on "broadcast ssid" or tell your computer exactly what the SSID is. One form of security is to set the router not to tell other computers in wifi range what the ssid is.

Compaq presario m2000 - secondhand


This does appear to have wireless capabilities. there should be a small button to the left of the screen latch which you press to turn wireless on/off when on there should be a blue light that comes on. if you wish to use wireless to access your broadband you will need to have a wireless router / ADSL modem (depending on your supplier) you then configure the settings on the router to access the internet, then you configure the laptop to connect to the router. (there shoudl be instructions on how to do this with the router I hope this helps
