Presario F700 Wireless Signal Switch

by 2trjan / May 2, 2011 10:08 AM PDT

Does anyone know how to fix the wireless signal switch on my Compaq Presario F700 laptop? It us stuck in the off position - glowing orange - blue is the color for the switch when it is on. I have tried to reinstall the bios, have restored the computer to factory settings - no luck cannot access the router or the internet

I appreciate any discussion - Jan

I solved this problem, by cleaning the wireless cooper connector on the card and the motherboard with a alcohol swab.
Wish it helps you!
