First, I'll let you know this isn't my laptop. This guy I know bought three of these for his kids (they're probably not the kind of kids that should even have these, at least two of them, LOL). Anyway, I had two of the three trying to clean them up, remove viruses, etc. This is the only one of the three that had built-in wireless, which is where I'm having my final problem.
I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling, drivers, adapters, anything I can find, I still can't get it to work. Either I get the radio button is off, the adapter isn't installed, can't find a connection, etc. I currently have a card in the slot so I'm using that to connect right now. I'm about to give up on this and just tell him to buy another wireless card for this one so I can be done with it, but I thought I'd try here first to see if anyone can help me figure out what to do.
Also, when this computer boots up, it makes me select an operating system. Both of the selections are Windows XP Professional, but the second one doesn't boot up if I select it, so I'd like to get rid of it if possible (so I'd need help with that too).
This laptop is a Compaq nc 6000, if that helps anyone.
Thanks for any help anyone may be able to provide.
