Top key row, 4th button from right, is wifi on light,
answering for this LED lamp is dead, when pressed.
means driver dead.
Presario 2000 PC old, no OS stated so answers will be wrong, lacking that KEY FACT unstated by you.
6 years old PC true name below.
HP 2000 Notebook PC Compaq Presario CQ58 Notebook PC
came new with Windows 8.
if you upgraded to w10 things break sure. did you?
here is the problem with you not stating the service tag full data and that Pn 123abc.ABA#
the ABA tells the HP expert what chip is there.
modules called wifi mini-pci.
Item Component Spare part number (the offical list of chip OPTION only for YOUR PC sold new)
Atheros AR9485 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi Adapter
Atheros 9485GN 802.11b/g/n 1x1 WiFi and 3012 Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter

is run our scanner PCI-z and others.

or pop the wifi hatch and look first.
then load the correct driver what is SEEN THERE.

You may have to install or update drivers Most of the drivers/software I get are from a web site driverguide.com you need to fill out a free registration then search for the driver you need download it in a format you can use install it and then most times reboot the computer

Start by making sure your windows configuration is equipped with the latest updates. I installed a new hard drive in my computer and did a fresh install of XP. Once it was installed, I used the "Tools" tab on Internet Explorer to do a windows update. It took several cyles of doing this to get things worked through. For instance, Update won't offer the Service Pack 2 unless you've already updated to Service Pack 1. After 2 or 3 or more cyles of running Update and rebooting my computer, I suddenly discovered my wireless feature was up and running. Once it is actually in operation, you will need to configure it using the menus. I'll leave that discussion to another expert.
