Compaq Presario CQ60 salvaged from trash to practice repasting the processor and try breaking down and reassembling laptop.
Works great at reboot except NIC card will not start itself but requires pressing the wireless button to start it manually every time.
Have switched leads, cleaned contacts, reseated several times. Network is set to start automatically but won't since no device is starting with computer to do so.
Reinstalled to a test partition to see if that would solve it but it appears its hardware prob. Anyone seen this before?
