Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

1 Answer

Internet adaptor My internet is not connecting to the internet anymore. The switch on the left hand side won't go off orange. When you move the switch it should turn blue to show that it picked up an internet connection. The wireless networks are not found and it seems as if the drivers are absent. I have had this computer less than a year. any ideas?

    my presario v6000 series has the same problem. I recently purchased it secong hand and used to restore disks to reload all software. During the initial setup, between the various shutdowns, there was a pop-up that said the hard was disabled and to go to hardware configuration and enable it. I did and it turned blue, but shutdown and restarted two more times. After the restart, it did not show up on the hardware list. I downloaded all the latest drivers and tried to run the wireless assistant, but the wireless assistant does start and it still doesn't show up inn hardware configuration. Help!!

Hi,

This could be three things, first, a hardware fault, which the wireless will need to be replaced,

2) You can go into network connections through control panel and double click the wireless network to re enable.

3) Go to HP website and reinstall the wireless drivers. ( If you need the wireless adapter type, check out device manager in control panel

We would need more information. You might be connecting via wireless and there is a function key or wireless turn on switch on your lap top. I would have you refer to your service manual as you left no model information.

Hello, Lyn.

On the left side of your laptop, you'll find a wireless on/off switch. See if that switch was turned off.

Hopefully, that will help.

P.S. I didn't grow up in the computer age, either.

hard to answer your question without knowing what Operating System you have on your PC and laptops connections, eg. LAN, wireless etc.

If you have windows XP you will need to check Network Connections on your laptop to make sure the Internet connection is showing as connected.

Click on Start - Control Panel -- network connections.

Check if Internet gateway is setup

If not go to Internet Options in Control Panel and setup the Internet connection using the right buttons.

I cannot guide you if you have Vista or Win 7.

I can't connect to the internet


I'm assuming you run some sort of windows...

go to your control Panel

For Vista/XP, click on the windows/start button (lower left hand corner of your screen)

Click on Control Panel, and then click on your networking

If your internal wireless modem is disabled, the internet will not work

If it is disabled, then right click and click on enable.

If it is enabled already, you can click on troubleshoot

Gotta problem


Hold down the Fn button on the lower left corner of the keyboard and the F2 key @ the same time.
The light on the front of the lid should light up. If it doesn't follow this link and there is an update there that should get you up and going.
