    GR8! Thanks, I now am able to access the internet, however I can only turn on the wireless connection by using the icon in the task bar?? The blue light on the computer lights up as normal, however it is touch sensitive & should light up & activate wireless mode when toucheed - but doesn't do anything when touched!

    Any ideas how to rectify this would be much appreciated.

    Hi, I have the same problem, but on a HP Compaq 8510p notebook. Whenever I touch the sensitive touch panel a light comes up (except for the wireless button (wich does nothing) however nothing happens in windows anymore. I think it has something to do with a Windows Service I accidentally turned from Automatic boot mode to manual?

    I've checked the HP site for updated drivers and I was using an older version so i'm gonna try and update now, BIOS aswell eventually.

Hp 6715b vga's to external display fine, but no internal display. Replaced display cable, inverter, and lcd is good, I know this as fact ! Still no display, HELP ?

Hi, First push your FN- and the F- button that has the display symbol it may be set to the external screen. Can you see anything on the screen if you hold a flashlight close to it? If so I would say your back light went out and will need to be replaced. If this is not the case, recheck your cable and make sure it is grounded properly.
Also check the sleep button, This should be located above the keyboard. Sometimes it gets stuck.

Power-on Password

b> If your HP Compaq 6715B laptop is lost or stolen, the power-on password can protect the valuable data on your computer. Even so, there may be times you'll want to clear that password and knowing the right procedure will make that easier. Once the power-on password is cleared, the Compaq 6715B will no longer require you to enter a password just to start up your laptop.

Shut down your Compaq 6715B and wait for it to power off. Press the "Power" button to restart the laptop. Tap the "F10" key after the Compaq splash screen appears. Wait for the setup menu to appear. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Security" menu and scroll down to the "Power On Password" option. Delete the entries in both boxes, then press the "F10" key. Choose the "Save Changes and Exit" option to exit the setup menu. Wait for the laptop to restart and verify that the laptop does not prompt for a power-on password. Hope this helps.

Compaq presario m2000 blue wireless light doesn't

You should have re-installed the Driver for the Wireless Card, you can do that by going to Control Panel, than clicking on System and Maintenance, and than going to Back Up and Restore, go to Repair Windows using System Restore, you can re-install your Driver that way or go to and go to Support, enter your Model #, and you can re-download your Driver from there.
