I suspect this cannot be done (unless you are an expert hacker :) )

This number exists to tie presupplied software to your computer for licensing reasons.

(I ma not be correct on this)

SOURCE: I want to delete tracking capability in my HP pro 3500 in the BIOS

HP doesn't really make Lojacked PCs unless some aftermarket parts were added to it. Assuming your PC had a factory-default refresh, then it should be fine.

My hp desktop does not TURN on because the chassis fan is not connected.

The computer recognises that a fan is not plugged in via the 3 pin power connectir on the mother board.

Is an emachine boot disk W2828 compatible with compaq presario desk topS4000v series?


When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values to certain major hardware components;

1) Processor
2) Motherboard chipset
3) BIOS program, version, and date
4) Harddrive
5) Graphics chipset

Instead, I would like to post that you can get the Restoration Disk, for your Compaq.

THE disk.

On the back of the desktop is the Serial Number in a white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
Only give this to an authorized HP representative.
(HP bought out Compaq)

In the US the disk is free.
The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Write the Serial Number down to give to the nice representative.

Outside the US,

After you install the Restoration Disk in the computer, and when asked, choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

HP Compaq 6005 Pro, nine beeps

9 BeepsNine beeps means that there has been an AMIBIOS ROM checksum error. Literally, this would indicate an issue with the BIOS chip on the motherboard. However, since replacing a BIOS chip is sometimes impossible, this AMI BIOS issue is usually corrected by replacing the motherboard.
Use utility tool like RegInOut to repair corrupt registry files and keep your computer safe from being damaged.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ62, the wireless button stays amber, I have pressed it and it wont change to blue. I have never used the WIFI previously and it has always been amber color. Ive tried to turn on...

its and HP, HP owns COMPAQ, all of it. for vast years.

well it can only be these reasons, on this very old PC.
its now not supported
then you post lacking what OS you are running, making accurate answers impossible , so go to GENERIC mode.
my guess the virus magnet called XP with zero support for 3 years./
  1. its infected, with virus, or that virus corrpted the OS.
  2. the wifi car is bad, seen many bad this old, it happens.
  3. BIOS has it turned off, sorry there are no bios books to answer that now, HP deleted them due to too old. after 10 years.
  4. The software for the wifi , is 2 fold, the wifi driver must be good and the driver that makes the amber button must be good.
  5. by good, it must match the OS you run. unstated by you.
that amber means 2 things, im in airplane mode, (no its dead.)
means the driver is dead, or the chip is dead. or....

the chip will be dead if BIOS has it DISABLED in all cases.
was this the real model>???


if you study PCs and for sure study chips in them
you learn fast that the wifi card (or minipci ) or what ever is there can be made by many suppliers. Intel,,Realtek, , Broadcom, and more.
HP (old compaq) used many of them throughout a production run
some runs ran many long years, even 5 years
and they also have wifi+blutooth option cards, got bluetootH?

what is in your PC only HP knows, by SERIAL numbers
I know because I have PCI scanner, that i can run on your PC.
I run the scanner and see the Intel chip and model there

but is here.
lets say , you said W7 32 bit then at you found your page
took me 1min to do that.

yup in fact has lots of chips. used on this PC, see that fact here

why not ask real HP for help.
and not here, we are not HP. not in the least.

after BIOS is on for this......!!!!

there 5 ways to cure this in a savvy shop
1: PCI scaner, tells me in 1min flat all chips inside, (wow)
2: ask HP with your serial number stated.
3: run each wifi driver and see all but one fail. (tedios but works)
4: remove all hatches, find the wifi card, read the name on it, , now you know what it is so the driver match is easy,
5: PNP it. (using the internet)
6: use the F11 key a powerup and reload the whole OS from scratch,and bam it works (bios not off)

keep in mind PNP cant work unless, you have internet.,
wifi dead, is no internet so PNP is dead. easy no?

if you used a ethernet cable from LT to your router, bingo?
and then saw gee i got internet now.
and then did wifi update in device manager you might get lucky.
luck happens, but with XP , rare.

im sure the DM , device manager shows the wifi dead.

why not post saying OS first.
then ask for wifi fix help
and have and ethernet cable in your and first.
or other pc to get drivers.
there is no other way.

looks like 5 chips used on 1 PC.
see? see that ?
its always a problem this

I neversweat this.
I use this tool to find my wifi chip, run scanner then use Database lookup seen there to find true chips name, Boardcom 1234 or ?

last and not least and the most hard of all are BIOS BOOKs.
wifi is not simple at all is it, its the most hard topic of all.
for sure connecting.
im reading you hp BIOS pages now, in the manual, called HP Setup by HP, using the hot key ESC.

first turn off this.
LAN Power Saving (select models only) (means off on battery)
if on and pC is on battery , the wifi is shut off, if this is present.

read page 99 see that wlan, on off, BINGO
under built in device options in BIOS screens
WLAN Power Saving (select models only)
in the HP service guide bingo
