Your laptop came with Vista and you need to have been very careful in the "downgrade" to XP process or this is one of the side effects. There is a physical button on most HP/Compaq's which disables the wireless and I think you need to find the button manager driver for your model so it will work properly.
You should also use the PN number on the bottom of the system rather than the model as there are several possible flavors of F730. That number always ends in #ABA; but, then links to the actual production run of your system.
