Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?

I have a compaq presario laptop. I am told I can turn on the wireless capability by using a switch or a function key combination. I have no switch; please whaty function key combination should I use?


Answers :

My Presario f500 has the wireless switch bottom left front. However, I had trouble accessing wireless earlier this year and contacted HP only to find this model has a fault and the guarantee had been extended by 12 months to enable this to be fixed.
A presario that I have has a button on the right side front that is recessed and round. You did not list the model you have and there are MANY models. Mine is an R3000 series.
