    same problem, no solution

    Same problem: wireless lan doesn't come on, light stays amber. No device listed in the device manager other than the NVIDIA nForce networking controller, which I believe to only be the LAN device.

    I have the same problem and I own the same model HP tx1000.
    So far, I don't know how to fix it. HP guy told me to up date wireless driver but it didn't work. I also updated the bios. Still, it didn't work either.

    I have seen many HP users having the same problems, but it seem that company itself didn't know anything.

    I am having the same problem with my tx1000 tablet notebook wireless card: SPS# 407160-001. The device manager suddenly does not show any wireless card connected or available. I've never had a piece of hardware NOT SHOW UP on the device manager like this before. If it were a driver incompatibility, I could roll it back and be done with it, but that's impossible when it's not under the manager. All of the normal routes of fixing a shotty wireless connection have been tried. I replaced the hardware with another mini pci wireless card 407576-001 and I still have the same problem. If it is a hardware problem, it's not the card itself. I have a feeling that it's a software/driver problem but have tried everything that I can think of involving driver re-installs and bios updates. It's a very odd problem. Could it be a physical connection problem with the wire leads? Could it be a larger software issue involving an automatic update? Let me know if you have any ideas. Please don't tell me to turn the wireless switch "on" as a solution.

I had the same problem. I let the computer shut down for awhile (more for my own sanity than its) then when I started back up I pressed the Windows button and X. A panel came up which I'd never seen before and it included the Wireless Assistant switch, which had become disabled. I changed it to enable and pressed the amber wireless button on the desktop ... and it came on! I'm still amazed, but I'm typing this over my network connection. I hope this helps someone.

Installed windows 7 on my hp tx1000 tablet pc and now no wireless card

wireless card issue is a typical promblem with the Tx1000, first thing is that you changed the operating system and window 7 is unable to pick up the wireless card hardware, and a driver is needed to be installed for the wireless card, which you can find at the Hp site or the broadcom site if you have the broadcom wireless card. Other then that, if nothing works, then try to see if the laptop can locate the wireless card trough the hardware/sound device manager in the control panel. After opening the device manager and scrolling to hardwares and the wireless card is not found, then this is the typical tx1000 wifi mystery promblem. This promblem is associated with the laptop overheating and thus caused the card expansion slot to become defect. This by far is the start of a more promblematic issue that many other tx1000 owner is having. Google "mysterious wifi card on hp tx1000" and there are thousand out there with the same situation.

HP Pavilion Tx1000 not seeing wireless card. I put a new one in since the old one didn't seem to work, and not seeing the new card either.

That's the problem of the controller chip not the wireless itself. Faulty Nvidia chip on the motherboard. You will need to reflow the chip. Take it to the shop or get the DIY guide from

HP Pavilion TX1000 wireless network adapter dissappeared and i can not see any network to connect to.

Just a thought:

There may be a switch or button that turns the wireless network off.

Check your manual or you may see the keyboard icon with radio waves going up, press this key. Check connection now.

Wireless network card

Hi there.
The wireless switch on the front bottom of the laptop, it's suppose to be blue when the button is on the right.
Right click on computer and select manage, go to device manager, and go to Network Adapters, try to see a network adapter called Broadcom, if it doesn't appear, it means that your computer doesn't recognize the wireless card and you may have to reinstall the drivers.
Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck

Pavilion TX1000 - WiFi card suddenly not detected

The solution is, get a USB wifi adapter, because that card is done. HP REFUSES to recognize this problem, and since the majority of failures happen after the warranty expires (mine did) HP just says you are SOL. You can get decent wireless adapters for $20, and your wireless problems will be solved. Unfortunately, expect your laptops motherboard/chipset/dc port to fail within a year :(

Bluetooth in HPTx1000

I believe there's a switch on the HP pavilion TX1000 to enable its Wireless LAN and Bluetooth.

To the right of the audio inputs and outputs is a slider switch and an LED. This one controls the wireless devices, both the Wireless LAN and Bluetooth and is blue while the wireless devices are enabled and red when they are not.

If you are using Windows Vista on your computer, you may go click on this link for instructions on how to use bluetooth with Vista.
