HP Compaq Presario F500 Wireless Not Working

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Have a Compaq Presario F500 with Vista Home Prem.  System had Virus issues so I ran Windows Safty.Live.com.  After running the Live Care my wireless Broadcom wireless would not function.  I thought that I would fix issue by running a repair format on the operating system.  After repairing the wireless card still want work.  The Broadcom Wireless card is not recognized in the Device Manager.  Pulled the wireless card and reseated it but still not recognized.  I use Driveragent.com and it picks up on the device as disconnected device.  I have look in the add hardware and dont see it.  Any help on what I am missing?
