Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook ?

V2300cto intelpro wireless problem

\015 I am a self taught computer geek- medical microbiologist. I have no technical computer training but have been managing my desktops and laptops over 10 years now.\015\012I have a compaq presario v2000, which when checked on line says 2300cto. OS is xp home. edition version 2002, sp2, intel r pentium 1.6ghz processor, 590 mhz , with 0.99 gb ram, Fujitsu 60 gb hardrive, tsst L 532 cd dvd with light scribe,ac97 modem,\015\012I have an intelpro The problem is suddenly the wep enabled(netgear router) internet connection stopped working while in use, when the laptop restarted came up with F1 to resume or f2 to continue screen.\015\012Or the laptop would just not do anything after power on except the hard disk light would flicker for a while and go off.\015\012I managed to reinstall the xp, get all the software back with the applications and software dvd that came with the laptop.\015\012I tried reinstalls of all kinds, full format after deleting all partitions, repartitioning the drive, fat 32 reinstall and ntfs reinstall with quick and complete formats. I tried complete install with wireless network off and wireless switch on the laptop turned off till complete reinstall etc.\015\012I tried using it with and without macafee antivirus , personal firewall and browser protections.(Exact same os and software environment the laptop was in 3 weeks ago working perfectly fine)\015\012I also tried updating my xp with windows updates, then reinstalling the hp recommended drivers for system enhancements and the other hardware.\015\012I disabled by wep and made it unsecure network so it could connect without encryption. I tried cmos reset by removing the cmos battery, and reinserting it. I had flashed my phoenix bios with the hp recommended 22A winflash utility 8 months ago.\015\012It works a couple of times after complete installation. Suddenly it freezes when surfing the net. When I try to reconnect the use windows to configure my wireless settings -when enabled- fails to repair the connection and the wireless icon disappears completely. When disabled comesup with a warning, windows cannot configure this connection, you have used another software, use that to configure this connection.\015\012I have tried using the TCP ip settings which were working before (-like obtain ip and dns address automatically, and alternateconfiguration- user configured ip address-current setting working on the 2175 laptop)\015\012When I reinstall, the OS the laptop goes into F1 to continue and f2 tosetup mode on restart. F1works then. But when the laptop drops the internet connection or freezes and restarts, I may need to hit f10 to enter bios.\015\012I load setupdefaults and restart, then also many a time i get f1 to continue and f2 to setup. The f2 to setup never works. \015\012When in bios almost always the blue tooth device shows up as enabled, the wireless does sometimes but most of the times it does not show up.\015\012Another thing I noticed was whenever this F1 to continue and f2 to setup comes up with 2 beeps, the boot order goes to floppy- which i donot have. \015\012So I disable floppy and move it down the boot order to 3 with cdrom in 1 or 2 and hd in 2 or 1.\015\012When I get the laptop going by system restore or loading normally or safemode and restore, all software except intelpro 2100,2200,2915 mini pci wireless card, (with blue tooth) PCI, mass storage controller, texas Instruments PCIxx21/ 515 cardbus, and sometimes SDA show up with yellow flags in the device manager. uninstalling them and restarting the computer sometimes gives the wireless connectivity.\015\012 All other software work perfectly and the same internet connection encrypted or unencrypted works perfectly fine with my other laptop presario 2175 US. \015\012I tried reinserting the wireless card too, everything works for a while.Stops soon after.\015\012I repaired the MBR also using repair console.\015\012I use Advance windows care personal v2 cleaner and mcafee quick clean to clean the laptop regularly.\015\012I do notice theres no bridge in the network connections. I have 1394, blue tooth lan and dial up connections there.\015\012I suspect I have a trojan or a virus that shuts the net down , turns off the wireless card and bios fails to load it on restart and this probably makes the laptop go into the f1 to continue and f2 to setup mode?\015\012A complete reinstall after full format should have reset -if its default- from wake up on lan state? I guess this means wireless lan also.\015\012Any help suggestions, solutions, you can give will be deeply appreciated.\015

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
