Compaq presario r4000 embedded wirless

Can anyone shed any light on the following prob??
I`ve had this presario for a while now but recently I`m having to enable the embedded wirless card in the bios setting (F10 in set up) and sometimes the device isnt even shown in the bios set up and i`m having to shut down and start up several times befor it re appears in the bios screen for me to enable again.
A solution would be much appreciated.
Cheers
Ady

    Thanks for the advice, after looking at your links I contacted HP via live chat assisstance and they guided me through a process of updating the bios system to a later version and this has sorted the problem.

You require sound card drivers
Look in your user manual for what sound card you have and then look for drivers for that part of sound card makers website.

I have a compaq presario r4000 will not boot up correctly


When you start it up, go to the BIOS option and select "peripheral" settings. I don't know which column its under but you want to turn the network adapter off. If that makes your Operating System come up working (And you may have to come up in SAFE mode the first time), then you can always go back and reset the BIOS to recognize the network adapter, or install a different one.
