I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi All,
It had been working fine for two years now. Just yesterday my I year old punched the keyboard of my Notebook here and there when I was working. I show a couple of dialogs popping up and getting closed when he was punching. And all of sudden I lost my wireless connection, in a strange way.

The WIFI card is disabled, the physical button on the laptop is red indicating that it is disabled. When I press it to switch the wifi back on, the switch don?t respond

WWhen I run network diagnostic: error is: Wireless capability is turned off. But I see no option to turn it on.


I checked the network adapters through the Control panel and also in the device manager. They are up and running. No yellow sign, no ?!? marks.
Restarted several times. No change.
Restarted in safe mode. Deleted the device in device manager and reinstalled. No change.
Disabled firewall. No change. (DO I need to restart after disabling?)

Checked the manual for Key combinations to toggle wireless on off. But there were non.
Any ideas? Please help. It may be a key combination that was activated when he punched the keys.

? AVG Free is installed. Need to check this one.
? Need to check in BIOS as well.

A:Turn on wireless capability COMPAQ c794 on Windows 7

Get rid of AVG free, it causes wireless connection problems on a daily basis around here.

Uninstalling AVG will most likely fix the problem but if you are still having problems please post your ipconfig/all here and I will have a look at it.

My daughter has an old Compaq N600c with OS XP professional. When she visits me she would like to use my wireless broadband, however, her laptop does not seem to have a wireless capability. Is there any way we can install a card or something? I opened the silver multiport cover on the laptop lid and there is a green card in there, marked PCB-PC7507 TRANSFB-30D-VER 310.Alternatively, would one of those USB dongle adaptors work? If so, can you suggest what to buy?Im useless with computers, so any advice will be very much appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Compaq Evo N600c wireless capability?

You can use a USB wireless adapter. The laptop probably has a PCMCIA slot; if so you can use a PCMCIA (Notebook) card.

I prefer the PCMCIA cards, but USB adapters can be used with almost all computers while PCMCIA adapters are limited to older laptops.

Whatever you buy just make sure it is compatible with XP, and if possible with Windows 7 as it will probably outlast the PC.

Hi, i'm having a problem turning on my laptop. I'm using a Compaq Presario C502US. I've been using the AC adapter that came with the laptop but eventually the AC adapter became loose and broke. The charging icon (lightning symbol) wouldn't turn on anymore and I think the laptop has now run out of power. I've finally received a new adapter and when i plug it in the charging icon lights up. However the laptop still won't turn on. I've waited for about 2 hours but it still won't turn on. When i click the power button, the Power turns on and then it blinks. The Fan turns on for about 3 seconds but then it goes off and the power light blinks and the monitor won't turn on. Can anyone help me with this problem?
 

A:Compaq Presario won't turn on

Remove battery and power adaptor (ie all power out)

Hold down the ON button (to disperse all internal power)
Plug the power adaptor back in only (and to wall socket!)
Turn on!

If it works, turn back off, and re-install battery, turn On

I bought a presario 1500 that I had assumed had a problem with green lines that were on the lcd and external monitor. The lady who owned it had taken it apart and sold it to me that way. I bought it today and tested it when I got home. I powered it on and I saw that the fan will move slightly but won't start and the hard drive will start but shuts down after about 5-10 seconds. The power light always stays on but nothing else. I noticed when I unplug the hard drive and battery inverter board(see link) it will shut off the power light. Could that be the problem? I don't see how the motherboard could break when it was never used. Anyone have some advise?

A:Compaq presario won't turn on

This looks like a power supply controller card issue. Also some systems will not run if the CPU fan is not working. You need the battery inverter board in place to power the system and light the light.

My laptop is only a year and a half old and it wont turn on. I recently had to buy a universal charger because the original broke. I was using it tonight then all of sudden it turns off without warning. The light on the power cord is on, but when i plug it into the computer it turns off, so it just stays on when not connected to the laptop. The light that indicates the computer is charging doesn't come on. when i press the on button, nothing at all happens. I really dont know what to do. I had some files that i didnt back up but i really dont care about them, i just want my laptop back. Any suggestions?

"The light on the power cord is on, but when i plug it into the computer it turns off"...

Try another AC adapter first. If the same thing happens, there is a problem with the internal DC jack or the motherboard is bad

I have a compaq SR2010NX with windows XP and ethernet that runs through a netgear module through the wall plug-in. I downloaded norton updates the other day and can't remember if I shut down the computer or not. Anyway my son turned off the power cord. When I turned it back on, the computer would not power up. The light on the hard drive does not illuminate and the fan does not run. I have checked the wall socket and power cord and they are fine. I also checked the power cord at the back of the cpu and tried other sockets, to no avail. Any ideas?

Hi.
I have a Compaq Presario R4000. It's around 6 years old. Until recently it has worked as well as any other laptop with the usual software problems. Yesterday I tried to switch it on and all I see is the charge light flashes once for around 1 second then goes out. No response at all from the machine. Tried running it without the battery but still no response. A friend told me that it may be the battery and that some laptops won't run without a battery inserted.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Cheers.
 

A:Compaq Presario R4000 won't turn on

The motherboard is probably fried, after 6 years. Also, the CPU cooling heatsink/fan could be bad or the thermal paste or pads could be burned. If the battery is the original it is in long need of replacing...

"that some laptops won't run without a battery inserted"

Not exactly true. If the AC adapter circuits are faulty, maybe yes. Otherwise, it is not true. If a battery shorts, it can keep a laptop from powering up

Hi - thanks for your attention and help.

Saw this was posted before here but unresolved. That was years back.

I lost power last night, and now today, Compaq Presario SR1215CL is unresponsive. Was not moved, is plugged into a top notch surge protector, that also the printer, monitor, etc utilize and they are all operational.

There is a rapid clicking noise and a tiny green light in the back rapidly flashing.
When I unplug it, the clicking and flashing slows and finally stops.

Must stress this computer has been fine. No movement, impact, trauma, etc. Just power off and refuses to come back on.

Any advice? Have been Googling help threads before coming here. Thank you.

You need to first make sure that you have a wireless NIC installed on the desktop.

You need to make sure the wireless NIC is enabled in Device Manager.

You need to make sure you have the drivers for this wireless NIC up to date and installed.

You should make sure you are using WPA2 security with AES encryption in your routers settings for the wireless connection. Of course you will need an SSID "name for wireless network" and that you have a wireless password set up.

You need to make sure those settings are reflected in the profile for the wireless connection under Manage Wireless Connection in the Network and Sharing section in Windows.

Hello,

I have a problem with the switch button for my wireless network adapter on my laptop. It doesn't turn the radio on when the laptop restarts. I suppose, it stays on off no matter what the button position is.

So at every boot one has to:
- wait until it fails, (so all programs needing network at startup fail too)
- click on the network icon in the system tray, diagnose and repair
- wait for Vista to work out that there is no wireless connectivity,
- click on turn on wireless connectivity then wait until Vista repairs itself.

After that is works happily until the next reboot.
I repeat - it is not some software option. The on/off switch doesn't work (nor the function key).

Question 1 Can I switch on the connectivity on startup to allow this to
happen seamlessly. Is there a cmd command which I can setup to run at startup.

Question 2 Is there some way of creating a shortcut
which would allow the click of one button rather than going through the
learning experience each time that the connectivity requires to be switched
on.

Thanks for reading

Hi

I have a desktop computer, and have a D-Link DWA-510 wireless network adapter installed. Though I cannot pick up any wireless networks even though I know there are wireless networks as my iPhone picks them up.

I have tried the following:

1/ Clicking on the wireless/internet icon (not sure what to called it, it's the icon that brings up network and sharing) located on the bottom right of the bottom task bar. though no networks show up.

2/ Adding a new wirless network via 'Network and Sharing' option - though when windows does a search for networks it never stops searching.

3/ Installing the new drivers from the D-Link website

If I look at the back of the tower the network card that I have the external antenna connected to has one static green light lit. So I gather it is installed correctly as it is lit and it was installed when I brought the computer, although if I go to device manager it is not listed under Networks?!. I have triedto search on turning the wireless capability on though I cannot find a solution that actualy turns it on.

Anyhow hope all that makes some kinda sense please suggest some solutions I could try!

The SD card in the camera has something seriously wrong with it and whenever I put it in my laptop, the sound control opens and closes and a little message with the wifi and Bluetooth symbols with and without red circles with lines through over them. This is usually not a problem as when I take out the card the wifi and Bluetooth resume normally. However this time when I try to connect it says 'windows cannot find any networks'. A diagnosis says 'wireless capability on this computer is turned off. Turn on wireless capability. This can be done by using a switch, which is usually found on the front or side of the computer, or a function key combination.' I've found the switch, on one side it has a circle and on the other it has two arrows like a fast forward symbol followed by what looks like an LED and then an antenna symbol. Obviously the switch is meant to be towards the antenna, which it is. However it is only half way towards it because it slides back to the middle if I push it further to the antenna (this also brings up a 'wi-fi catcher' which is empty.) My investigations into this have found that fn+f2 doesn't do anything and there is no blue antenna symbol on the keyboard. The WLAN card is enabled.

And the button is blue when wireless network is on. Tocay, the button's color stll changes to blue when I press it, but whenever I lift my finger the blue color would change back to amber. And I could see wireless networks appear when my finger remains pressing the button and it's blue. And upon lifting my finger and the blue light changes again to amber, all wireless networks would disappear. So it's just a matter of making that button hold the blue color.

To my knowledge my laptop only has the internal radio switch (fn+f8), Once I do that I can turn on/off airplane mode and bluetooth but nothing happens when I select wireless, its loads for split of a second and then nothing changes. I don't know what the issue would be?

I am not a complete novice, but I am a very frustrated one. Is there something in a config or other system file I need to do to be able to see wireless networks? Any help is appreciated
 

A:Can't see wireless networks - Compaq Presario

Dont use the Netgear software to connect, use the windows zero configuration to do this. I have never liked the connection software that netgear uses. You can do this by opening the network connections (Start>Control PAnel>Network Connections) and right click your wireless card, then select "View available wireless networks. If it gives you a prompt saying that the Windows Zero Configuration is disabled, go to Start>Run and type Services.msc, then hit ok. Find in the list Windows Zero Configuration and right click it. Select "Start", then open the "View Available" again. Post results

Hi,

I'm using Presario V6000z with Windows XP Sp2. Some days ago, I "hibernate" it, and then wake it up. Waited for so long but the wireless LED never turn blue again. In the Device Manager there's no list item called Broadcom in Network Adapters like before. The specification at www.hp.com: http://search.hp.com/redirect.html?...io+v6000&oc=3230698&oc=3230698&ocr=21&ocrs=21

Please tell me how to fix it? Is it possible to replace the wireless card/chip only or I have to replace the mainboard?

I switched off the wireless slider, installed the driver for it. Then I searched in the C:\Windows and saw this file, bw.log. In this file, it said the broadcom is detected, don't know why it doesn't appear in the Device Manager.

Hello world,Recently I've bought a 2nd hand Compaq Presario C500 machine for the insane amount of ?25. I had some ram laying around so I buffed it to 2 gigabytes and decided it will do juuuust fine as a replacement for my almost dead Acer Travelmate 2420 laptop which was used as a small server. Replaced the 80 gigs drive with 800 gigs one. Installed everything I needed - great.

I recently changed the house, but always keeping a fastweb modem. The modem model is the same as that of the old house but they changed the modem giving me a new one and my Compaq Presario CQ60 no longer connects to the Internet, but only to the modem. Connection's network tells me that the network is not identified and internet doesn't work. I tried to power cycle the modem and install different drivers but nothing worked. What can I do?

A:Wireless Compaq Presario CQ60 Driver

Hi: Your notebook probably has the Atheros AR5007 wireless network adapter. If it does (you can verify by going to the device manager, click to expand the Network Adapters device category to see the name and model number of the wireless network adapter), installing this driver normally resolves that problem... ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp54501-55000/sp54972.exe

Ho cambiato da poco casa, mantenendo per sempre un modem fastweb. Il modello del modem uguale a quello della vecchia casa, ma hanno cambiato il modem dandomene uno nuovo e il mio Compaq Presario CQ60 non si connette pi a internet ma solo al modem. Nel centro connessioni mi dice Rete non identificata. Ho provato a spegnere e accendere il modem e a installare diversi driver ma niente ha funzionato. Cosa posso fare?
