Re: Ethernet not working! Help!
Im assuming its not dissabled, if not then go to control panel, network connections and right click on your network card and go to properties then driver and see if there is a code 9 meaning it's faulty or the device is working.
if it is faulty then it's part of the motherboard anyway and you will have to buy a pcmcia network card and connect through that instead

Beep codes are unique to each brand of computer:
1 short with 1 long beep = bad bios. Must reload bios from disc.
2 short beeps = general bios failure
for more - do a google search for "v2000 Beep Codes" and go to the link for "bioscentral" - all are listed.
Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)
If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA. Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter. If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.
Click on start. Then click on Run.
Type in MS config.
Uncheck load startup Items.
click on ok and then click on restart.
Any application which turns on and starts using your port when the computer turns on would stop loading on their own and you will have free ports to use.
This is an operating system error, and you will need an operating system disc. You can try to repair or reinstall the operating system, but most likely the hard drive has failed and will need replacing.
Disconnect battery and unplug from power, test for voltage on power cord and re-insert, hold down power switch. If nothing try battery without power cord. Still nothing (no lights, no sounds) then it may need system board replacing.
