Having problems with your Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook ?
Lost my Dog, Wife, Truck, Wireless
\015 Hi!\015\012\015\012As long as I've had this laptop, I've stayed away from its little on/off button for the wireless connection. Never had a problem with it before now. The wireless adapter simply vanished. The external wireless button does nothing. Nothing appears in Windows's Device Manager - no card, no unknown device, no nothing. It's just gone. All traces of it except (I assume) the internal, physical device itself.\015\012\015\012Kinda tempted to suspect that it's a hardware problem, but I'm hoping that there's a few last things I can try with it before I take it to the blacksmith for a good retempering and firing in the forge...\015\012\015\012...thanks, experts.\015\012\015\012:)\015
The wireless card will be under a panel on the bottom of the machine, Clean and check the connections on the card. Reinstall it and reboot the computer, if it doesn't see it then do a hardware search. If it still doesn't find it, then download the drivers for it at Compaq's support site. Sometimes a driver glitch will cause the card to go dormant and the machine goes blind, by reloading the drivers fresh the machine will get past the glitch and see the card again. Almost like DUH there it is. If it still has issues, then the card has failed. You can find them relatively cheap on Ebay. Keep in mind that the card doesn't have to be the original card that is in your machine, it just needs to have the proper drivers. If you purchase a card that came from a different make or model, you can find the drivers at driverguide.com by the card make and model.
Hi , ive just recently purchased a faulty compaq m2000 laptop from ebay, this also had the same problem with the wireless connection. if you look at the underside of the laptop undo the cover for the ram then you'll be able to get to the screw to the wireless card cover. remove the wireless card and try re-seating the it and check the cables (black & grey) on it as thay can sometimes come loose.
Hope this helps.
