    Heres the problem i reinstalled xp. When I did this I couldnt get any sound so I went on hp website installed all drivers for sound problem solved. Then my wlan button wasnt going on like it normally does so i installed all wireless hp assistant and drivers for it. Now it keeps on saying wlan disabled but I cant get it to enable wireless, the button wont flash up like it used to when I pressed it. All i need to do is to get the button to flash up like it used to do as soon as I press it? Does anyone know how to do this? My laptop is the compaq persario v5000 if that helps Also this is the website with all the drivers for my laptop just let me know if i should download any of these to fix it http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...499847&lang=en. Thanks for your time

    You have installed the driver for the wireless adapter and other chipset drivers, right? And you go into Network Connections, right-click on the wireless connection and choose 'enable' but it stays at disabled? Plus you cannot switch the wireless on?

    If the above equals three 'yes' answers, I think the wireless adapter has failed.
