Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario F730US Notebook ?

I have an Hp Perserio F700 laptop with vista the wire less card seem to be malfunctioning I did how ever order another one just in case it's the card,after reading blog after blog I'm starting to think it's not the card,I ran a diagnostic on the Mother board the mother board is fine so It's either the Card,Vista most likely,Or a Faulty driver?Perhaps someone here has another solution?Any answers? Andrew


Answers :

If it is not the wireless card, it is either the motherboard or the HDD. If you want to spend the money on a new HDD, then it is worth a shot, however 99.9% of the time, when there is any sort of wireless issue with the computer, it is most definitely the motherboard.

You can test the HDD by going into the BIOS, if it passes, then it is, without any doubt, the motherboard, if it fails, though, you aren't any further than when you started.

Also, (and I know you ran a diagnostic on the MB, however, half the time, those are hardly accurate) you can test the motherboard by overheating the computer. Not to the point that it combusts, of course, but just run as many programs as you can to get the computer as hot as you feel it is safe, when it has reached this point, unplug it/take out the battery. Try to restart it immediately. If it doesn't come back on, or the lights flash then go off, or something like that, again, it's the motherboard. But, again, this is not fool proof.

Your best bet would be to guess it's the motherboard. It will save a lot of headaches and money in the long run.

If you still have your warranty on the thing, call HP and send it in. Otherwise, you are looking at up to $400 dollars to get it fixed/for the part.
