    Hello I have a laptop compaq presario R300 running windows XP. My wireless internet has stopped working. I looked in my device manager and there is a yellow question mark next to other devices and with in that, yellow question marks next to Base System Devices, Network Controller, PCI modem, SM BUS Controller and Video controller. I was wondering how I can reinstall them. Do I use the recovery CD 1 or 2 or is it something else. I was also wondering if those yellow ?’s are the reason my wireless has stopped working? :eek:
    Thanks, Megan

    If those drivers were OK and mysteriously disappeared the real question is "why?".

    But, you get the chipset and networking and any other drivers you need from your Drivers or Resource CD (if you got any with the PC) or from the PC manufacturer's web site, support/download section.

    Hello I have a laptop compaq presario R300 running windows XP.

    TechKid, this is what Megan posted. I was going by that.

    I just checked "R3000", and it brings up 51 models. We need the correct one.

    Megan, it should be on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop case.
