Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
My Compaq Presario X1000 often restarts itself after using WIFI for some time. Before it restarts, the screen turns blue with many lines of message shown for a short time before it turns black and restarts. I cannot read the messages in time. Now I have to turn off (switch off) the WIFI so this symptom will not happen. Disabling the WIFI still gets the same symptom.

Old compaq. LAPTOP,, 14 years old now, Im amazed it even glows at all with CCFL lamps not dead, wow.. its like a musiem piece.
(sorry , grin) (back ground lamps CCFL)
NO OS stated by you , XP, ????? why must helpers beg?
and wifi , (difficult that)
it's not wifi, its just that you use wifi most the time ,SEE? right?
in fact we could remove the wifi module. and prove that.
disabling wifi is airplane mode, (todays jargon) but means the wifi transmitter is now OFF (airplane safe is THAT)
the blue screens tell a lot, and no posted photo of one by you.
BSODs we call those blue screens of *****
XP love to do that. (even with Bill Gates on stage) LOL
BSOD are hard. Im sure it says 2 words, HALT and DUMP !
here is a list of causes.... for sure 14year old relics (legacy junk)
all techs know rule 1,
is it hardware or software, (this is alway first after #1 above done)
to do that we open the CD tray, insert our free LIVE LINUX CD
and boot to linux
wow it runs for hours ok, proving what, HARDWARE IS BAD
if Linux fails its bad hardware (running period correct disk)
if linux runs i next do a full HDD test, using the great linux program there to do that.
or take that handy dandy, Compac (now HP) 3 disk install disks
set and load disk one, does that run? ok
even full restore. or does it show HDD errors.? oops HDD is bad.
the BSODs are really what.
it means the PC attempted to run and ******* instruction.
in simple terms, it means a program is corrupted.
or tried to do ******* things with memory.
that is why test test the PC with a boot CD to see if the PC is ok.
mr wifi real.
sure this can short, but if it is removed and it still BSODs
its not this card, its other cards, shorted. or not at all. cards.
we call this mini-PCI slot card.

Fire it up and test
Thump the lid switch- sometimes it gets stuck down.
if that is the case. Apply 1 drop (and only 1 drop) of WD40 on the barrel of the lid switch. It will run down into the switch itself and lubricate the plunger.
Hope that helps

This can be a driver issue.
I would go to the manufacturer website and retrieve the most updated driver for your wireless card.
Then, go to device manager
Right-click on "My Computer" -> Click on Manager --> click on Device Manager
And uninstall the wireless card. For example, my wireless card name is
INTEL/Pro Wireless 3945ABG Network
After you do that, go to Control Panel and click on 'Add Hardware". Click on "Next" and it should detect your hardware.
After it detects the wireless card, point it to the most updated drivers that you downloaded.
See if that works.

Tips for a great answer:
during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there
hope this helps
