Check your wireless switch is functionable. First switch then the hardware

if you cannot see it with any exclamation or in other devices - under device manager reinstallation of the driver will not bring it back, If some one removed it from the hardware profile or if there is not any hardware failure it will comeback when you do fresh installation

Compaq Presario 2050NX onboard pnp nic (LAN) device not found - reinstalled onboard LAN device driver, still can't see it


For Windows XP CLICK HERE
In Windows 7 the driver installs automatically
I would suggest uninstalling all drivers for the network adapter then reboot and allow the system to find the NIC again. If this is Windows XP uninstall all drivers for the NIC, reboot, and install the above driver.
If it is Windows 7 uninstall the drive, reboot and allow device manager to locate the driver itself.

How do I check that I have service pack 2 installed on my Windows XP home edition. I have service pack 3 and many updates which have been done automatically. I need help with getting my computer to talk to...


HI,
Did you reinstall the drivers for your wireless adapter? please check the device manager and confirm that wireless adapter is getting listed under "Network Adapters". and if the driver package includes a software which helps to configure the wireless adaptor , you can find it under Start-> All Programs menu. if there is no software provided with the driver package, follow the instructioss:
1. click Start and Run.
2.  in the Run command box. Type "services.msc" hit enter.
3. in the list check for a service named, Wireless Zero Configuration. check the status, if it is disabled, right click on it, go to properties and  select the startup type as "Automatic". click apply and click start.
4. now go to control panel and go to network connections, . if the drivers are properly installed for your wireless adapter , you can see a computer icon with a red x marx which has the name of your wireless adapter. right click on it and select the option view available networks, it will scan for signals and will give you a list of wireless netwok available in the range, select your network and connect, it will ask you for a key if its a secured network, enter the key and it will connect without any problems, 
Hope this will help you.
Thanks, 
Vipin

WLAN device driver loading Issue


Sounds like the device driver to the wireless card is corrupt. Click on start>right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware tab then Device manager. Click on the "+" sign next to your wireless Network adapter. Then right-click on your network adapter, click on Update driver. The system will automatically look for the new driver and download it. If there is no new driver then go to the manufactureres website. All of the drivers are there. Find your computer and download the driver.

My VGA is very low as low as 4 bits and I cant fix it.


You need to locate and reinstall your video drivers - most likely showing up in Device Manager as VGA compatible or other device. After installing will appear as Display Adapter and allow higher resolution.

My HP wireless doesn't work? I don't have wireless connection on my compaq laptop anymore.


check your wireless adapter is on... the switch is on the front of your laptop and you should show a blue light when it's on, also go into device manager and see network adapters.. you should have 2 (the wire one built-in and your wireless network adapter.. if you only have one network adapter, check the front and see if the light indicating the status of your wireless network adapter is amber.. (if it's showing amber and you're sure it's in the on position you may have a motherboard problem and you may need to send the system back (I just had one of those with a compaq computer and since the item was within warranty the fixed in a week)

if your wireless adapter light is blue and you see your wireless adapter in device manager follow this instructions and you should be ok,

On my laptop, I cant connect with wireless connection.


1. were you ever able to do it before?
2. first.. check your wireless adapter is on and you have a light showing you adapter is on (blue or green).. on some compaq laptops if you get an amber light and the switch is on the on position the wireless adapter may be faulty and your motherboard may have to be replaced.
3. check also you are within range of your access point (router).. usually on the system tray (where you clock is ) you will see icons showing you are within range or not (ex. a computer flasing a little blue light with some waves to right).
4. find if your computer detects your wireless adapter (go into start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab> device manager... and look under network adapters! if you see your wireless adapter make sure you don't have a ? or a ! sign next to it.. if you do you may need to update the driver or reinstall the driver of this device. check the cd that came with the adapter or using another computer download the setup file/driver from the hardware manufacturer of your device and using a flash drive move it to the system you're working on and install the appropiate driver for your operating system.
