Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario F730US Notebook ?

Presario f730us wireless light stays red and in device manger has nothing about wireless

Answers :

This is a flaw with Nforce chipset and Broadcom wireless cards. But getting HP to admit to it is another story. Every F700 used on a daily basis will have their wireless fail. Here are the solutions to try and resolve this...
1. Buy and install new wireless card ( has worked for me numerous times. Cheapest solution, $25 BUT may not work)
2. Buy a USB wireless adapter (little bit more money but will definitely get you up and running $50)
3. Replace motherboard (refabed cost around $120 or so. There is a reason so many of these go bad... Thank you hp!)

Other than that don't believe it s software/virus problem as it is a pure bad hardware issue. I am still a fan of Compaq laptops.. Just have to ignore this little bubmle on some engineers work station :)
One of the simplest things to do if you have this problem is uninstall the HP wireless assistant and re-install it from the HP website. Try the link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-48908-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en I had the same problem. My wireless suddenly stopped working and the LED indicator for wireless stayed orange no matter what. HP wireless assistant refused to start from any location. I tried updating the drivers, using a system restore from a restore point and what not. I found this solution somewhere online and did it. It miraclously worked for me. Hope this solution will help someone and save them from going through all the trouble which I went.
