Some of the component temperatures have been running too high, leading to premature failure of various components, including the wireless, the graphics display hardware, and others.

Wireless doesnt work on my Compaq Presario V – Forums – CNET

You are at the point where I would disconnect and reconnect the module to see if adaprer makes a difference. Didn’t find what you were looking for? Message 7 of 8.

Here is the solution: This topic has been archived. Hopefully people find this because I know tons of people have had this same problem. See you later HP! I looked through all of the forum topics 26 pages and didn’t see anything that jumped out at me that has this kind of problem, so I apologize if this is old hat to anyone and my problem qireless across as annoying.


How to Enable HP Presario Wireless

We are well past your usual laptop lifespan so we’ll be installing a Wifi PC-Card. Make and model, operating system being used, etc. My 2yr old sons fingerprints are gone If doing that didn’t make a difference then I would pronounce the wireless module to be non functional and replace it.

To re-enable wireless communication on the PC, activate the wireless antenna. There is a good chance that this is a software problem, NOT a hardware problem like most people keep saying. All you need is a jeweller’s philips screwdriver. Stays red the whole time.

Solved: Presario V cannot find wireless adapter – HP Support Community –

After nearly 12 hours of updating everything seemed fine until Fompaq noticed the wireless adapter had vanished from device manager and was not found when I used search for new hardware. For FREE, even the shipping!! First, I would try installing an updated driver for the chipset and for the wireless adapter.


Are you comfortable enough with your tech skills to access the module and disconnect and then reconnect it? Does one of the F keys have the wireless symbol on it? Go to Control Panel to see if the wireless adapter is recognized by the OS ans shows a driver loaded.
