Compaq Presaro V2000 will not power on after mini-pci card removed

I installed a Broadcom Mini-PCI wireless card (BCM4306) in my presario V2000. When I switched the laptop on I got an error message 104 saying remove new hardware and reboot.
I switched the laptop off and removed the mini-pci card. Now the laptop will not power on. No light comes on when the power adapter is connected to the laptop

I have a g5690 shuttle and would like to install a wireless card to connect to our home wireless network. What shoeld I buy?


My suggestion would be a mini-pcie laptop card, N300 or higher (you can buy them on Amazon and Ebay for around 25 dollars, Azureware or Intel are usually good) and a low-profile mini-pcie to pcie adapter which comes with antenna.

I may not be understanding what you are stating, so bear with me;

1) The Wireless Modem antenna wires are up in the Display Assembly,

http://www.mundocorp.com/shopexd.asp?id=1160

In otherwords they should already be there.

2) The 802.11 Mini PCI Card, is a Wireless Module.
It goes in the Mini PCI Compartment, under the Mini PCI Compartment Cover, located on the bottom of the laptop.

It's made by Broadcom,

(Gateway 6002672 part number)

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/NETWORK/Wireless/6002672/6002672mv.shtml

See at the Top right where it states Main, and has a white Side Arrow?
This terminal is where the Black wire (Lead) of the wireless antenna connects to.

The other terminal, AUX, is where the White wire connects to.

Here is the Service Manual, (PDF file form),

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/600YG2/8508798.pdf

REMEMBER, remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery, before working on the laptop. Also follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Error Message: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. System Halted. Remove device and restart.


Hi,

I think you can try this steps and hope it will help you.
Try to reseat the Wireless Card in your machine.

You will need the following tools to complete the removal and replacement procedures:
-Magnetic screwdriver
-Phillips P0 screwdriver
-5.0-mm socket for system board screwlocks
-Flat-bladed screwdriver
-Tool kit-includes

Turn the machine upsidedown

Remove the battery.

Wireless Card Removal

1. Loosen the PM2.0×5.0 screw 1 that secures the Mini PCI
compartment cover to the computer.
2. Lift the rear edge of the Mini PCI compartment cover 2, and
then swing it forward.
3. Remove the Mini PCI compartment cover.

4. Disconnect the wireless antenna cables 1 from the Mini PCI
communications card.
5. Spread the two retaining tabs 2 that secure the Mini PCI
communications card to the communications compartment
socket. (The board rises up).
6. Remove the wireless communications card 3 by pulling the
board away from the socket at a 45-degree angle.

**Reverse the above procedure to install a Mini PCI
communications card.


If happens that it does not work, I think you can just reinstall OS just to make sure if its Hardware or Software problem.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.

My gateway laptop cant connect to the internet. _When I plug a cable, the red light in the port does not respond _ The WIFI does not respond


Hello John,
It seems that: 1. Your LAN controller and the WiFi controller could be disabled in your BIOS setup.To re-enable them, if applicable,
  • Press the F1(or F2 ) key repeatedly after restarting the computer to enter the BIOS setup.
  • Navigate through your BIOS and locate the settings for LAN conroller and wireless, and select Enabled to enable them.
2. You may not have the appropriate drivers installed on your laptop for your network controllers. Upon further investigation, your laptop runs on the following network hardware:
  • ActionTec IEEE 802.11b network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94306 IEEE802.11g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94300 IEEE802.11a/g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
Download and install your drivers for the hardware above from: Wireless Drivers(Broadcom BCM94306) from http://www.soft32.com/download_175098.html Broadcom BCM94306 10/100Mbps LAN drivers from http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/downloaddrivers.php
Hope this solution helps.Good day.

Compaq presario 2100 how to install a Wireless pci card


If there is no antenna then you'll have to buy the wire set via eBay, take apart the lcd, remove the top assembly of the laptop and then run them through the computer and put everything back. NOT FUN.

It's probably much easier and realistic to just purchase a usb wireless card.

Hope this info helps.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!
