HP Compaq 6730 b: LAN problem

Dear all

I have a problem in the laptop HP 6730 b LAN cable

When I put the LAN cable, the operating system does not detect it and still conntcted to Wirless

When I restart the OS and keep the cable connected LAN, windows can recognize him, and everything is ok

but when I remove the cable and put it again once, windows could not detect it...


1. I installed windows 7 image with some applications, but I create the image of the PC

2 - I have another laptop (same series) and this problem exists also

in the meantime your advises

It would be fair that because the without wire is already connected, it does not recognize the two internet connections.  Turn off the wireless, then insert the LAN cable.  See if that makes a difference.

  • HP compaq 6730 s: windows 10 in my 7 year old HP Compaq 6730 s - should I try it?


    I have an old (but surprisingly good job!) 64-bit processor HP Compaq 6730 s, implemented to date with an SSD and 8 GB of ram DDR2 memory. Currently it is dual-boot Windows 7 Home premium, 64-bit edition, pretty well - he gave no problems up to now and Ubuntu 14.04. I'm quite tempted to upgrade to windows 10, but because it's a pretty old computer, I'm not sure of the weather, the material will be fully compatible with w10... and also I don't want to lose my partitions!

    So, what do you recommend me... should I go for it?

    Thank you very much for your help and for creating amazing machines like the 6730 s!



    I have the elitebook 6930p who basically has the same hardware as your model.

    W10 works fine on mine, but I don't have a webcam, nor do I use the fingerprint reader or protect software security tools, so I can't confirm that those who work on W10.

    You should be able to recover to W7 very easily if you do not delete the windows.old folder.

  • computer laptop HP compaq 6730 b freezes and slows down

    I have a laptop hp compaq 6730 b.

    Since a few days, I realized when I plug to charge my cell phone, it freezes finally and slows down.

    The CPU usage suddenly increases.

    What should I do?

    help please...

    Thank you

    It works ok with only the power adapter is plugged in and the battery out of the laptop? The battery charge ok if the laptop is turned off? The laptop works for a long time reasonable with just the battery?  I've seen this kind of problem with a Toshiba machine that used a NEC/CATHERINE 0E128 Proadlizer high switching frequency DC/DC Converter output capacitor.  I doubt that your computer has this chip but the problem and the function are similar.  It is a device surface and can cause the laptop to have a problem with the battery and the power adapter plugged in at the same time.  Many times this you will also charge the battery when the computer is turned off, but not when it is turned on. Sometimes it will not allow your to run Notepad with only the attached power adapter and the battery removed. Just to think.

    Yes, that is: change to IDE in the Bios and it can start from the "upgrade Bay.

  • Compaq 6730 s: upgrade HP compaq 6730 s RAM (4 GB - > 8 GB)


    I have a 7 years hp compaq 6730 s running windows and ubuntu. It has 4 GB of ddr2 ram (667 MHz, according to me, but I'm not course on this) and a dual processor Intel Centrino 64-bit. It still works great. But I have to run long analysis and many programs at the same time and that makes it sometimes slow down or even freeze. I was wondering if I should look more than an upgrade of RAM or an upgrade of the processor. I think the first, but I've never done before

    Thank you!



    I run Lunix so I don't know how he manages memory. In other Word, I know that we can put the data in memory and eliminate the disk i/o - much, much, much faster but in this word RAM is still very, very expensive. Now, they will put flash card of new machines which is much less expensive to use for page and swap files. In short, more memory is good.

    Kind regards.

  • Factory Reset my laptop HP Compaq 6730 b

    I want to factory reset my hp compaq 6730 laptop b I do not have the recovery disk. I tried the restore point but only brings me in June of this year, but I want to factory resets this laptop if someone is able to walk me thru it I appreciate the help.

    You are the very welcome.

    You can use the recovery of a DVD on the 3.

    You may be able to run W10 on them.

    After installing all updates of W7 (SP1 and others), if your PC can run W10, you should get a booking W10 icon.

    See this link for more information.


    My HP elitebook 6930p who basically has the same hardware as you ran W8.1 very well.

    He also ran the first 2 preview W10 relies very well.

    All versions since that time, the ricoh cardbus controller then gives an error code 12 (resources).

    I reported this bug to MS and I noticed there were other models HP affected as the 8440p.

    So, unless this bug is corrected and that your machine has the same Ricoh card reader mine, you can probably count on getting the same error.

  • HP Compaq nc6320: HP Compaq nc6320 wifi activation problem

    Small Question: How do I activate the connection Wireless HP Compaq nc6320?

    * sounds activity is disabled, but the adapter wif is enabled

    Hi friends,

    I have a problem in my HP Compaq nc6320 laptop. I found it long (without Wifi card)

    Recently I got wifi set-up. I wanted a wifi for this card & bought a comptible after testing 10-15 cards as says the patop that were incompatile.

    I set the card Intel (r) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless & installed the drivers correctly wifi successfully tested before leaving the stall vendors.

    But now it doesn't connect to the wifi. When I pressed the button not on wifi. no activity in the wifi icon yet.

    The card works fine (tested with another laptop)

    Is there a special method activate wireless avtivity in this model?

    I installed windows 7 in two times, but no luck so far.  my wifi card compatible for this model? If so whi it worked the first time from that fixed to the laptop? can someone tell me what I need to to connect with wifi please?

    I can assure you that the wifi driver installation is done properly.

    Thanking you...


    This laptop has a wireless white list that blocks the start if the correct card is not installed. You must purchase a wireless HP part number card.

    The laptop is 10 years old. It is the only card in the manual for the United States. Don't know where you are and which may affect the part number you need, but it's the American part:

    802.11a/b/g module LJ WLAN for use in the United States and the Canada. 407254 001

    Here it is on eBay:


    He must have the SPS number HP part number. I suspect that your card is bad and others that you tried to buy are incompatible, then you will need to get one like the above, if you are USA or the Canada.
