I have a Compaq Evo N600c Notebook.  After the file system became inaccessible XP has been reinstalled.
Now the Wireless LAN Multiport W200 is not detected by the system.
I have tried installing drivers and tried using Fn F2 to switch it on but the card is simply not seen in device manager.
Help appreciated.

Most laptops with integrated wireless have a toggle switch so that you can turn the radio (wireless) off for better battery life.
It may be a key combination (like you suggest Fn+F2) or it may also have a physical switch or button. If you don't have a physical switch, you also need to install software to enable button (Fn) shortcuts.

Thanks for your suggestion.
It needed a new card.  There was no doubt about it in the end.
There was no software problem which could have been fixed nor a physical switch which we had not spotted, the fn F2 button is fine when used with a working card.
