Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
The wireless networking button and the sound buttons above the keyboard on my Compaq V2000 laptop have stopped working since I reinstalled Windows (for an unrelated problem). It's not that I really need them going but without the wireless button I am unable to connect to the network at home.
I tried going to My Network Places and from Network Tasks choosing "Set up a wireless network for a home or small office". I ran through this process and it said it was successful, and the link to my other computer shows up in my network places, but when I try and open it I'm told it is not accessible - it seems like the wireless network has still not started.
I have been searching forums for weeks on this subject and still can't find any specific fix - please help!
What operating system did you reload? Support for Compaq is under HP now.
You need to load the Compaq Quick Launch application. For XP, probably this one:
Otherwise, go here and choose your EXACT model. V2000 is a bit generic; there are several sub models:
While you are at it, you should get all the other drivers you need from there, too. Lots of downloading, but it's worth it to take full advantage of all the features.
