Wireless card and sound won't work

I have a compaq presario v2000 notebook that i just bought and not only can i not access the internet wirelessly, i also can't play any sounds except the system sounds (beep for error, etc.). the sound driver says its functioning fine, and i already tried downloading a new driver for it, but it doesn't make a difference. the volume buttons at the top of the keyboard also don't work. As for the wireless, i should be able to just hit a button to turn it on, but when i hit it, nothing happens and i don't even know where to begin to look to fix that problem. Help!!!

My compaq presario V2000 will only connect to dialup


To connect to your DSL internet you will need an ethernet port or wireless card on your laptop. Your laptop should have an ethernet port, it will look like a phone jack but a little bigger. In the off chance that you don't have an ethernet port on your laptop you can also purchase an ethernet to usb adpater. You may have a wireless card installed on your laptop, but if not you can purchase a usb wireless adapter. To use your internet wirelessly in your home you'll also need a wireless router. All of these things can be purchased at your local electronics store (walmart, best buy, kmart, frys) and usually are fairly easy to setup with the included instructions.

Wireless internet on compaq presario 6425 tu


Do you know for sure there is a wireless connection in the area you trying to connect, Wireless internet isn't accessible every were and when it is available it could be protected by a security pass phrase. The only way to really get full use out of your wireless internet is to go to a company that sells the wireless internet cards

Need to amplify incoming internet signal


Install a wireless access point at the strongest signal spot you have. This will repeat the signal throughout the rest of the house, or an addition length as necessary. You can purchase a good linksys wireless access point at bestbuy for $83 or cheaper from a trusted ebay dealer. Setup is fairly easy, follow manual.

Wireless not working...


If you want to use the College wireless system, then you will have to conatct the administration and they will point you in the right direction.

Although the service is normally free for students, you need to have the IP, subnet and gateway assigned to the laptop to access the service. They may also request your Mac address from your laptop. This is just the unique identifier to help protect the network from outside users.

Even check with a few of the others you will see at lunch using theirs, they will be happy to point you in the right direction.
