I was online wirelessly, then my computer tells me I have no internet connection, I also only have the amber light. I called HP, but the warranty – even with the one year extended warranty to cover this known issue has lapsed, which means I’d have to pay for repairs. Helpful 11 Not Helpful Comment Flag.

HP Compaq F500 Series Review

Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US. There are really only three things you can do in a situation such as f50 The switch to switch on and off the wireless network does not seem to work, normally when the switch is in the on position, the light will illuminate blue when the laptop was just starting up even compa there was no wireless connection, but now at no point when you switch the switch on does it illuminate blue it stays orange at all times.


Oddly, if I netwwork the thing sit for awhile, sometimes the light will turn Blue and I will get the wireless Internet working, but the HP Wireless Assistant still won’t work. Thanks The wifi card bad you could replace it.

Compaq F network issues – Tech Support Forum

Sep 05, Compaq Presario Notebook. Mainly the hardware should be showing up in the Device Manager as “working properly” – if not maybe somehow the device driver software got damaged or removed?

I too, newtork an HP F family laptop and the wireless went dead. Let cool for at least 25 minutes and reassemble.

The graphics driver for the Nvidia is one that does not work. The sound quality is good for a notebook, better then my ThinkPad which has poor speaker placement. Uninstall the device from the device manager and in the newtork manager do this operation “Scan for hardware changes”then u can find the wireless network adapter with no drivers installed.

[ubuntu] Wireless on Compaq Presario F

Hey team I have the above laptop completely working but, no wireless capabilities, the model number is gcpa abg i have tried installing the broadcom driver but nothing will work that i have tried, any ideas? I even tried new wifi card from a similar laptop still no luck.

Given the lower resolution of the screen, it makes an effective tool for browsing. It is a disgrace.

Doing any CPU intensive tasks like installing software or coding audio really bogged it down, even with the faster hard drive. I decided to look for a notebook with a glossy screen for when I was tired of looking at my dim ThinkPad.

I didnt give up and eventually saw some people say it could be nvida chipset or display driver problem. The Sempron fills that role well.

It does use a three-pronged plug which may sometimes make finding a suitable outlet more comlaq. But you ought to be able to see in Device Manager and Networks wether Windows thinks that the wireless card is working or not. The frame feels rigid, though there is one small spot on the right side that creaks slightly when picked up from the edge.
