Re: compaq presario m2000 - secondhand
This does appear to have wireless capabilities.
there should be a small button to the left of the screen latch which you press to turn wireless on/off when on there should be a blue light that comes on.
if you wish to use wireless to access your broadband you will need to have a wireless router / ADSL modem (depending on your supplier)
you then configure the settings on the router to access the internet, then you configure the laptop to connect to the router. (there shoudl be instructions on how to do this with the router
I hope this helps

While logged into the router, Turn on "broadcast ssid" or tell your computer exactly what the SSID is.
One form of security is to set the router not to tell other computers in wifi range what the ssid is.
You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers: - www.compaq.com/country/cpq_support.html
you need to provide more details.
pls check the adapter is good or not
check power socket
if power and adaptor is good then the numlock key leds and wireless and power key led must be green make sure it and if they are all green your screen may be bad check with another built in display card on the laptop to another monitor.
