Having problems with your Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook ?

Compaq presario wireless button no longer working

\015 I have a button on my compaq presario r3000 that turns the wireless on for me. I cant get it to light up anymore therefore keeping me from connecting to my wireless.\015

Answers :

There is a mechanical problem with the R3000 wireless button and volume-down button where they seem to push fine but are in fact failing to make electrical contact. I know of two work-arounds.
* Try pushing the button with a capped pen, gently at first, and then with increasing pressure. (Not so hard you break the plastic, please!) I suspect this gives the buttons just enough extra "oomph" that contact is established.
OR
* Push up on the battery compartment while pressing the buttons. If the battery is in, you can acheive this same effect by putting your laptop on a table and popping up the screen, then applying downwards pressure on that corner of the laptop body while pushing the button. I suspect this aligns things properly so that the button is able to depress just a hair further.

\015\012You may even find that these actions "loosen things up" enough to cause the buttons to work like new for a little while. I hope this works for anyone reading this!
You can still enable the wireless network without the button on the laptop....
