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

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

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

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.

Need Network Controller 4 both Compaq Presario 2100 2500 Laptops


You have to install the WiFi card with an Installer before it is recognized by device manager... go to the link below, and download the WiFi driver and install as Administrator. You will need to know your exact model number to do so.. Do NOT just get a WiFi driver that will NOT work, you must get installer version.

IBM R40 2722 1802 Error Message


This is due to the fact that IBM laptops have a list of accepted devices, and the pci card is not recognised in the list. On IBM - Amilo, Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer. Locate and remove Mini PCI wireless card, you will not have integrated wireless after this.
Other solution is to find the option to disable mini PCI in bios settings.
Here is how mini pci wireless card looks like:

Instaling a wireless pci card


First, as this is a type 3 mini pci slot that has your modem installed need to know if under or near the pci modem there are 2 wires with micro mini attach points. these would be the wires to attach the antenna to the wireless card. If there are no wires, then you will have to purchase the antennas as well. Normally these wires run up under the back side of the LCD Bezel.

Sounding complicated yet? Have you considered a USB wireless adapter from Newegg.com, tigerdirect.com,geeks.com,zipzoomfly.com,or e-bay, not to mention local stores.

New Wireless Card


Compaq has an evil bios which only allows certain wireless cards. I would reccomend the Intel Wireless 2200 A/B/G mini-pci card. That is the best for your laptop that they would allow.
