Windows 7: Need major help!!

Need major help!!

Hey, you've guys have help me before it worked wonder, but I'm in desperate need of help once again. I recently installed windows 7 on my compaq presario v6000 and it won't connect to wireless, let alone search for a network... the laptop acts like it doesn't have a wireless card which leads me to believe that I'm missing the driver for it. I downloaded slim driver for it to fix it, but when it comes to installing the "hp integrated bluetooth module I get the message you need to turn on bluetooth for it to install, I've tried everything to turn/find what it is I need to turn it on.

I'm going on a cruise in about 48 hours and need to bring the laptop for it to do work. Any answers are appreciated.

Is the wireless switch at the front of your laptop switched on?

To help you search for drivers we need your system specs.

Have you checked HP's support page for drivers?

Your wireless card would be a start, but check the link I gave you for HP and do a search on the Compaq Presario for drivers.

How would I go about finding out which one i have? For the link, I've tried that and after running the wireless driver it doesn't do anything.

Do you mean this slimdrivers? If you are using it, uninstall it asap. This kinda all-in-one solutions usually dont work well.
Here is a download page, visit it and select your notebook from the list (Show all). Choose your OS eg. windows 7/Vista (nothing means 32 bit), open the network drivers menu and then download what you find. I suggest you to install them all expect the "HP Wireless Assistant".
Now reboot and try your wifi.
Looking fwrd to your results.
