Wifi is not working while iam using in windows XP operating system


Hi Sivakumar133,

Some reasons why wifi stops working is due to corrupted driver or defective WLAN card. There are some ways on how to diagnose this problem, just reinstall the driver and configure it again with the wireless access point. You can download the WLAN driver for this particular system by visiting this link. You will notice that on the Networking Wireless LAN section it has 2 types of WLAN card, Broadcom and Intel. Just try to install the Broadcom driver because this is compatible with XP. If you're not sure what is the model of your WLAN just check it under device manager and look for Network adapter. After downloading, install the .exe file then restart the system. You can now configure again the computer to your router.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sound/Wireless gone after reinstall XP


I'm not sure what your inistal problem is, BUT:
it sounds as if you do not have a sound card, and need to reinstall the sound card. So:
First: go to the Microsoft XP website and install ALL updates. If the sound worked before, you may need to reinstall some updates.

Second: Go to My Computer icon, click on Properties, and go to Device Manager. Find the sound card, and make sure it is enabled. If it says device driver not found, then--->

Third: Go to the manufacturer's website, and download the install ofyour sound driver. Look up what your sound card manufacturer is and go to their website. It should tell you in the Device Manager.

Let me know how this worked!

wireless card enabled in BIOS is only telling the machine there is a wireless card other than what was buildin on the mother board.
The wireless will not work without the driver. I don't think you need to worry about the wireless when you installing the XP operting system.
first download the wirelss drive and store it on a CD of other media.
once you have finished the installation. You can install the driver for the wireless, then goto HP.com and download the drivers as you needed them.
My suggestion is install XP as fresh installation, it is much easier and faster, if you don't have any thing on the machine you need to save.
the change you made is fine, the machine should boot up from the CD. it may not happen the first time,but it will the second time.

Wireless fails to work after reinstalling XP SP2


Hey there,

The wireless driver might only work on Vista, try the IT Administrators - Intel® PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows* XP and Windows Vista*from here

First uninstall the one you have though..

Hope this helps
