The frame feels rigid, though there is one small spot on the right side that creaks slightly when picked up from the edge. Thanks The wifi card bad you could replace it. I have freestanding Series 8 dishwasher. I suspect the Fujitsu would have provided a bit better quality and performance with the Core Duo, but they ran out before I could buy. All of the benchmarks were run while using XP, not Vista which came with the machine.

Compaq presario F500-Win XP not find Chipset? Lan, Wifi, nVidia ?
After getting XP installed, things ran much better. Apr 29, Compaq Presario Notebook. Higher grade plastics and more rigid frames seem to be more the norm than they were a few years ago. If you’re still using Win ME get rid of it. The graphics driver for the Nvidia is one that does not work.
Hi there, Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two. USB ports are the only ones I use with any regularity. I had hoped these tweaks and additions would help make Vista run more smoothly because I have run Vista Business on my R60 with 1GB of memory and it seemed to run decently.
The F is not a gaming machine, but the score was in 3DMark05 if you were interested.
Buy a USB wifi adapter. There is no grain or sparkle. However, googling for the Nvidia XP drivers will provide solutions.

HP Compaq F500 Series Review
Apps would hang when clicked on like when using a slower hard drive. I decided Vista had to go. I wanted a notebook with a nice bright glossy screen as a contrast to my darker screened ThinkPad. It uses a multithreaded technique which can better differentiate between CPUs with multiple cores than Super Pi which is single threaded. Wif iis good whwere I’m working as other laptops are able to access in vicinity. While the speakers will never rival a good pair of headphones, it is certainly good enough for DVDs or listening to some music.
When I have in the past for myself or someone else, I have always found them to be helpful and friendly. The Fus has a pair of Altec Lansing speakers located between the screen and the keyboard. Being a ThinkPad owner, I knew the keyboard on the Compaq would be a step backwards.

Viewing angles on the F are thin like most notebooks. I will detail all of this later in the software section. Out of the box performance was quite sluggish due to having Vista in conjunction with the chipsef amount of memory and the bloatware.
