Compaq Presario CQ70 Fitted With A CQ60 Board
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi There

I Have  Lovely Hp CQ70  Fitted With A CQ60 AMD With nVidia Motherboard 498460-001

Original Factory Install Was Vista.  Then Windows 7 64-bit

Windows 10 Home 64-bit Clean Fresh Install On A Replacement Hardrive which passed SFC.EXE Test

MY bios Reads

CQ60

AMD Athlon Dual-Core

Processor QL-64  

Speed  2100MH2

Memory 2x2 gig DDR2-800 (4Gig)

Bios Phoenix F.36  03.13.09

Wireless Card Qualcomm Atheros AR5007 - 802.11

nVidia Graphics 8200M G

 

All Running Fantastically With One Problem

The Wifi Switch Will Not Turn On Automatically  Whenever I Start up The Laptop

I Have To Press The Wifi  Button  Then It Turns Blue And Connect To My Internet

I Have fitted Two Different Boards With The Same Issue

Re-Installed Both Windows 7 & 10 Twice With No luck

Also Tried 2 other Power Board Buttons

Its Not Running Hot The Fan Has Been Cleaned And Fresh Artic MX2 Applied

Iv Tried All I Can Find On This And Other Posts

And Set Bios To Default

 

Any Help Would Be Apricated

Many Thanks Maggie

Okay  

I Have Sorted My Problem Now

I Reloaded windows 7 64-bit Home Premium

Downloaded the Hp wireless Assistant  SP45223.5

Did All The Updates Until Windows Displayed Windows 7 End Of Life

Then Using Microsoft Upgrade Tool And Used It To Upgrade This Pc

It Then Carried out A Long Upgrade But Carried Over The Wireless

Assistant With it (.Had to go into the settings to set it up )And Now Sign's Into my Internet Automatically 

When Windows Starts Up

Very Pleased 

The purpose Of This  Was To Use The Nvidia  for Separate Use From Normal Windows

I Had A CQ Board With nVidia  So Didnt Want to Buy Another Board

 

Hope This Will Help Someone Else

Many Thanks
