My wireless button does not work on compaq nx7010


Press the Windows key on the Keyboard and then press the "R" key while holding down the Windows key to open the Run dialog box.
Then, type "msinfo32" in the Run dialog box and click OK to open the System Information window.
In the left pane, click on the plus sign next to the Components then click on the plus sign next to the Network.
Under the Network, click on the Adaptor to view the information regarding all the network adaptors functional in the Computer.

You can view the Network adaptor's information on the right pane. On the right pane, check whether the wireless adaptor is listed or not.

Furthermore, you can check in the Device manager under the "Network Adaptor" category whether the wireless adaptor is listed.

If the wireless adaptor is not listed in either of the windows then the issue is hardware related and service will be required.

Installed windows xp disk with a scratch and now wont boot up


If you have the Windows Key/License for the XP disk you can use someone else's copy of the XP disk or call Microsoft and ask for a replacement. You need the license and it must not have been installed on another PC previously.

I have a Compaq PC with Windows XP and the flat I've moved into has wireless broadband - how do I connect to it?


You can use a wireless network to share Internet access, files, printers, and more. Or you can use it to surf the Web while you're sitting on your couch or in your yard. Plus, it's easier to install than you think.
There are 4 steps to creating a wireless network:
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
2.
Connect your wireless router
3.
Configure your wireless router
4.
Connect your computers
For Windows XP users, Windows XP Service Pack 2 is not required for wireless networking, but it does make things much easier. Service Pack 2 also helps protect you against hackers, worms, and other Internet intruders.

Connect your computers
If your computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop). Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Note: The steps below only apply if you're using Windows XP Service Pack 2. If you're running Windows XP and you don't have Service Pack 2 yet, plug your computer into your wireless router and download and install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Windows XP should show an icon with a notification that says it has found a wireless network.
wireless_connected.gifFollow these steps to connect your computer to your wireless network:
1.
Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower-right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks. If you run into any problems, consult the documentation that came with your network adapter. Don't be afraid to call their tech support.
2.
The Wireless Network Connection window should appear and you should see your wireless network listed with the network name you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper-left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower-right corner.
wireless_chooseconnection.gif 3.
Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.
4.
Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. After you're connected, you can now close the Wireless Network Connection window. You're done.
Note: If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key.

Wireless network is not connecting


There is not a lot of information to work with here. First of all, the computer is a desktop. Do you have a PCI or USB wireless card installed? You need a wireless network adapter in order to access your wireless.

Next, do you have a wireless router? If not, you need one to provide something for the wireless clients to connect to. If you do, you need to take note of the SSID, or wireless network name. This is the name that the Compaq desktop will be connecting to (with it's wireless network adapter.

In regards to the router, did you setup WEP or WPA wireless encryption? If so, Windows will ask for the key or passphrase to connect to your network and must be typed in identically to how it was setup in your router.

Something else to consider, if you do use WPA for encryption, some older wireless cards do NOT support it and if you insist on using encryption, use WEP.

Hope this helps!
