Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?

CAN NOT GET MY WIRELESS INTERNET TO CONECT,LIGHT IS ON BUT WHEN IT IS ON IT IS TO TURN BLUE BUT IT DOSE NOT. CAN SOME ONE HELP?


Answers :

First, make sire the switch is in the right position...most of the the time when the switch is on the fron tof the laptop, "on" is to the right. If the switch is in the "on" position, then it is possible that the driver has gotten corrupt or is somehow missing. Try first to update the driver. Go to the control panel > Device Manager (in XP it is in System and then under hardware) scroll down the device manager and click on the + sign by the network adapters. Right click on the wireless adapter and choose update driver. Let windows go through the update and reboot, if this doesn't work, go back to the network adapters and this time right click on wireless adapter and choose uninstall. Reboot and when windows starts, it will recognise the hardware and install the appopriate driver for it. It would be better if you were connected to the internet by an ethernet cable for this, that way if the wireless is down, windows can search online through the ethernet cable and get a fresh driver....but if not it isn't totally necessary.

Wireless button Okay, I give up. I have a compaq 6710b laptop and have about taken the thing apart searching for the elusive wireless button. It just doesn't exist. I've also tried the approach suggested by someone else - going into device manager....no luck! Why does this laptop have all the requisite lights and toolbar icons that when clicked so helpfully suggest you enable wireless connection by turning on the wireless button when there isn't one???!!!!
