OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless On Compaq Presario R3000 Doesn't Work

Nov 8, 2010

Sorry for repeating the same old complaint but there doesn't seem to be a common fix: Wireless does not work on my Presario R3000 although SUSE 11.x lists the hardware in the Hardware Information list and the hardware is turned on. Network Manager doesn't display any wireless networks in SUSE while Win 7 can see 4 of them on the same machine. Ubuntu has no problem either

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working For Compaq Presario

Apr 29, 2011

I just finished putting openSUSE 11.4 on my Compaq Presario V5000. I have been trying for hours to find the answer of how to get my wireless card to work. I can't connect to my router wirelessly and the on/off button for the wireless mode does not light up when pressed.

As far as I can tell from what I have already tried, I have a broadcoamm wireless card. It is a bm4318. I have b43-fwcutter installed and I have tried updating my firmware through the terminal. I have also used 'sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware'. It appeared successful, but the laptop still cannot make a wireless connection.

Fedora Networking :: Compaq Presario C700 Wireless - Cannot Connect To The Internet

Mar 17, 2010

I installed Fedora 12 on my Compaq Presario c700 Notebook recently and had a great install. I installed ndiswrapper and installed the inf file for my broadcom 4311 driver through ndiswrapper as well. The installation of the driver appeared to go smoothly.

The only thing is that I still cannot connect to the internet. I aliased the driver as well to wlan0. I can not figure out what is currently the problem. I tried reinstalling the driver and I keep receive a message stating the driver is already installed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Light Constantly Blinking On Compaq Presario CQ60 Laptop

May 13, 2010

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop and have one of those wireless light indicators. For me the light glows orange when the wireless is OFF and blue when the wireless is ON. In Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) the light was always orange, even if the Wireless was on, but my wireless worked right out of the box so I was grateful for that, but since upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) I've noticed that my wireless light alternates between orange and blue frequently and sometimes flashes madly when wireless activity is occurring.

I was wondering if there is a fix for this as it can get quite annoying, the light sometimes stays blue for a while but will ultimately keep going back to orange and vice-versa, my friend who also has a Compaq Presario CQ61 (Revised model of mine) has his wireless light constantly blinking orange and blue no matter what.The wireless itself works fine, I can connect to any wireless connection and use it without having to install anything else, so it does work out of the box, which again, I'm grateful for.The wireless adapter is a Atheros AR5001 Wireless network adapter. Do I need to install additional packages or drivers to get the wireless adapter to work properly?

Debian :: Compaq Cq50 Display Won't Wake Up

Jun 25, 2015

I came back to debian after trying many others because it installed flawlessly and worked. I'm on the testing channel and upgrade nearly everyday and after a recent upgrade my xsession (Xfce4) display won't wake up any more after I close and re-open the lid. I know the box is awake because I can go to a ctr-alt-fn console login and use it normally. How can I track this down? And is there some way I can restart the gui display from the console without losing what was running before I shut the lid? Right now the only way I can recover is to restart the computer.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Or 10.10 On A Compaq Presario SR1503WM?

Oct 20, 2010

After using Ubuntu for a while I have decided I wanted to do a fresh install onto my PC, however being rather old it (about 6 years old), It seems I cannot get any recent kernels to run on the system. As such, I cannot get the live CD to boot. After searching for hours to find a solution I have found nothing.

Upgrading also breaks the system as well, So to do so wouldn't work.[URL].. with addition of a 256MB RAM chip and starting with a 512 rather then the 256 stated on the page. and a ATI Radeon 9800.

Is there anyway I can get newer kernels/Live CD to boot? I've tried all options i've found in other threads but no go.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Hangs On Compaq Presario M2000 Laptop

Jun 16, 2011

I'm trying to install Lubuntu 11.04 CD on a Compaq Presario M2000 Laptop to replace XP.
Processor: Intel Pentium Celeron M
RAM: 256mb
Existing O/S XP SP3 (boots & runs but is very slow)
Hard Drive 40GB (28Gb free)

Installation hangs about 1 minute after selecting language in both try Lubuntu & install Lubuntu modes. Have also left the laptop running all night to see if it was just a slow install. Have tried various other disks (Xbuntu, Puppy, Mint, Lubuntu 10.04), which have worked on other PC/laptops ok, but all stall after the language settings. Have tried burning the Lunbuntu iso with both Windows & Ubuntu at slow speeds & have verified the burnt iso. The laptop BIOS cannot be set to boot from usb, so an external CD or USB stick installation may not work? The BIOS has been updated to the latest one on the Compaq web site this morning. Although I have installed a few flavours of Linux on various hardware, I'm still a real Linux newbie. Can Lubuntu be installed within Windows, but still format the hard drive to ext2/3 ?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: RTL8191SE Driver On Compaq Presario CQ62 Doesn't Work With XP Driver

Oct 23, 2010

No wireless networking. The ethernet works fine, and the wireless interface itself works well in Windows 7 (dual boot). Tried: Ndiswrapper, notoriously quirky, does not seem to work with the XP driver (the oldest driver available for the RTL8191SE). The linux driver offered on the manufacturer's website lacks any installation instructions. I have no clue how to install a linux driver. SUSE seems to have two network managers that are constantly complaining about control: Network Manager and Yast. Neither are great and I am left missing my Ubuntu.

However, my audio only seems to work on SUSE. I have tried almost every distro on this machine. Ubuntu lacked sound and wireless, Fedora played startup sounds, but would not play an mp3 or wav file (fiddling with the mixer did not help). And Fedora also lacked wireless support. PCLinuxOS, my favorite, lacked sound and wireless. Tried some oldies too. ELE, DSL, Puppy, Ubuntu Netbook remix, Vector, Browserpuppy, Crunchbang, Cruncheee (just for experimental sakes) and probably others I am not remembering. So far, installing a free linux distro has cost me 14 dvd-R's and countless hours of installing, reformatting and reinstalling. Part of me really wanted crunchbang to work, as I love the minimalism and blacked-out theme.

I need wireless network access. The wireless light remains red in Linux and pressing the key does nothing to start the device. In Windows 7 it always lights white and works perfectly. Why hasn't SUSE adopted a gui for ndiswrapper? Other distros have it. Why is my brand new laptop, which is by no means abnormal in make or configuration, not 100% supported natively by any Linux distro? I just updated to the new kernel yesterday. So I should be running the most modern operating system available. Yet good-ol Windows 7 is my only fully functional environment.

Ubuntu Installation :: Use "force=1" On Compaq Presario 5000?

Aug 31, 2010

I tried installing Ubuntu on an old Presario I had hidden in the closet.After the install I try to boot up the OS. Prior to getting to the login screen I see a series of messages. One message is an error. The error tells me that I must update BIOS (can not from the Compaq site or anywhere else for the matter) or use the command:



I tried finding information on how to implement that but to my dismay I could not find any answers. how I would be able to utilize this command and override this BIOS problem so i can fully use Ubuntu 10.04 on this old dinosaur?

Ubuntu Networking :: USB Modem Unrecognized On Compaq Presario M2000?

Mar 18, 2010

I recently purchased a Conexant USB modem to use in my Compaq Presario M2000 laptop. (The laptop already has a built-in modem that's really a Winmodem. )I plugged it in, installed the driver, and it found the built-in modem....but not the USB modem. I'm looking for commands and packages I can try to further diagnose and rectify this problem. This would be a nice-to-have so I don't have to boot up Windows on the laptop just to be able to use the modem in places that don't have wired or wireless internet.

Ubuntu :: Converting Compaq Presario CQ56 Laptop To The Full OS?

Jun 20, 2011

New member here. Was introduced to Ubuntu by the IT guy at my last place of work and liked it so much, I ran WUBI on my laptop for a couple of months before taking the plunge and today fully converting my Compaq Presario CQ56 Laptop to the full Ubuntu OS.

The only issue I have is I have no sound whatsoever. I have seen some suggestions where you should check the hardware drivers and when I do that the only driver that appears is for ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver. It also says this driver is active and currently in use.

So, can anyone else offer some help. I love the system and the way it does everything but it needs sound. Incidentally when I ran WUBI (while Windows 7 was on there) I did not have a problem with the sound!

Ubuntu :: Compaq Presario 2100 Won't Load On Normal Boot?

Mar 20, 2011

I'm trying to breathe life into this old laptop; so I installed Ubuntu on it and ran into a problem loading it in Desktop mode.

When I want to start into it normally, it gets to the home screen and does a quick frame skip, kind of like an old VHS tape, and then fails to load the toolbars on top and bottom.

Loading into safe mode works great, but no wireless option seems to be available in safe mode?

The normal boot even gets to the "Ubuntu!" welcome sound, but... then nothing. I looked up a few Linux keyboard shortcuts and none of them function. So.

Also did the updates in safe mode. Update Manager did NOTHING when I clicked "install updates" button, so I did it through the terminal sudo get-updates/upgrades.

General :: Set Up A Compaq Presario 2100 For Card Games?

May 23, 2010

I have an old compaq presario 2100 (amd athlon) laptop that came with windows xp. it can't deal with xp any more so i put mandriva on it and let my mother in law use it for card games. now it won't even boot mandriva.

it says something about a 1720 SMART error. i ran the hdd test and it gave me a code: 1# imminent failure.

it will run mandriva off the install disk but I want to make this as easy as possible for my mother in law to play her games. I don't think she'd like to deal with all the steps involved with running it off the install disk. the problem with that is that the install wizard runs every time i turn it on.

will i be able to do something to the effect that my mother in law will be able to easily boot up and play her card games on the laptop?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Ethernet Not Working On Compaq Presario 6310

Jun 13, 2010

I acquired an older hp compaq presario computer version 6310us, and initially installed mint, followed by Ubuntu 9.04. Neither one recognized the onboard ethernet port. I checked the bios, and LAN is enabled. It is also enabled in the drop down menu from the toolbar on the desktop. The cable works fine on other computers, and the light on the ethernet port flashes like it does when the cable is connected. I'm new to linux, so not sure what to do to get the connection working.
