I have recently been given this laptop, and I assumed that it would have had an inbuilt modem. However when trying to hook up to the internet it states that no drivers are installed. Do I need to buy an external or internal modem, or is there another possible solution. Is it possible that the person who had this laptop before me somehow removed the internal modem or what? I am so very confused.
Any help would be grateful.
1.observe the laptop for any RJ11 socket (where you can connect your telephone cable).Most of the laptops are equiped with inbuilt modem.
2.go to specifications sheet of your model on www.hp.com
3.checkup the website for modem drivers for that model or you can find it at www.drivrers.com
4.basing on your operating system, download the drivers from above said sites and install them.
you could able to hook up internet.

Unofrtunatly with compaq as well as several other brands of laptops these buttons were notorious for failing and need servicing to be fixed. the best solution for this problem is to simply purchase a USB wireless adapter from a site like newegg.com
driverguide.com is the place to get any driver you need there you need to register and there is a small fee to become a member but they have any drivers you will need. Also try HP website they may have a download there for your system. Hope this is of help.

normally, laptops have an internall integrated wireless modem. All you should have to do, is enable the wireless, by pressing Function F6 or going into the network connections window and enabling the Wireless form there.
