Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook

2 Answers

Wireless Problems My wireless has been acting weird lately. I have an HP dv6000. The card is not able to turn on, it does not show up in device manager, and i have already tried to reinstall the drivers. I have gone to my HP wireless assistant, and it said to try going into the BIOS to enable the device. I've tried that and have no idea what to do there. Meanwhile i have been restricted to connecting my PC with an Ethernet cable, and the wireless seems to like to turn on at random times. It also stops working every time i shut down the PC

There is no solution, except for a motherboard or laptop replacement. I had to get my laptop replaced.

Solution for HP dv6000 wireless problem. Fix it yourself.
Hi...
I am from Costa Rica and my hp dv6000 had a wireless problem just like everybody.
Because I am in Costa Rica, the HP FEDEX service for repair, does not apply for me.

This is the solution that worked for me.
Difficulty: easy for skilled people, medium for inexperienced people.
It is not risky but be common-sense careful.
1- Unplug the Power cable and take off the battery.
2- Unscrew the memory cover. It is the one placed in the middle (2 screws).
3- You will see the memory, the bios backup battery and the wireless card (the one that has 2 cables plugged: one white and the other black, those are the wireless antenna).
4- Carefully unplug the backup battery. Small coin-like battery with a white plug.
5- Carefully unscrew the wireless card and remove it from the card slot.
6- Unplug the antenna cables.
7- Wait 5 minutes.
8- Plug the power cable and turn on the computer. Then wait for the screen to ask you something and choose the F1 option by pressing it.
9- Wait for windows to load and shut down the computer. Unplug the power cable.
10- Now plug back the battery and the wireless card. No need to explain how.
11- Put covers back and screw, of course.
12- Turn on your computer and verify the wireless switch is on the on position, otherwise turn it on when Windows is already loaded. The blue light should be on. If not, go to Control Panel, Device manager and check that your wireless adaptor is present and drivers are properly installed.
13- Your wireless must be alive and functioning.
14- If wireless not present, then it did not work, if it is present but have some problems, reinstall wireless card drivers and do what it should be done when updating drivers. That is a different problem.

That’s it. However if you want to know some important details, read the following.

-I tested my HP dv6000 wireless card on an Acer pc that is compatible with the wireless card.
-I try to test back the HP dv6000 pc using the Acer PC wireless card and the HP system said WIRELESS CARD NO COMPATIBLE CHANGE IT.
-The only one way to reset BIOS is by unplugging the backup (BIOS) battery as explained above.
-People generally try to fix it by recovering the original pre installed system, but it would fail must of the times.
-It is possible that the Wireless adaptor is defective; in that case none of the steps above will work.

Hope it worked for you...

Help with internol wireless adopter for hp pavilion dv6000


I guess it could be just a coincidence with the service pack update, I would suspect a hardware failure.
If you got a bad driver or no driver at all - the blue light should still work, because it has nothing to do with the driver, it is controlled by hardware and simply shows if your WiFi card receives the power.
Check the wireless card status in the Windows device manager.
If you see no WiFi card there any more - yes, it has no power and it's a harware failure!
This is known problem with HP DV6000/DV9000, decribed here
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01087277
Check your model, call them, send it for free repair - worked like charm for me.

It is also extensively discussed in the following threed on this site:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t535891-hp_dv9000_wireless_card_not_working
Though there are many ways how to fix it yourself all of them are bull... hm,
let's say not working :) The only real way is to get it done by HP - I don't know if they replace the whole motherboard or just several SMD components which are getting burned out...

HP DV6000 no wireless internet


Hard to say when I dont know the exact model.

If it is an Atlantis(DV6000-6499) it is most likely the mainboard, and it might be coverd by an extended warranty.

If it is an Ares(DV6500-6999) you should try updatigng th BIOS first. If that doesnt help i would go for another WLAN card. It might also be a defective mainboard, but that doesnt happen as often on Ares models as Atlantis.

HP Wireless Assistant


I just had the same problem with my wife's HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop.

It was working fine, then just stopped recognizing the wireless card. My daughter had been using it, so I was in doubt as to what had/hadn't been done to it software-wise (virus?). So I ran the complete recover to restore everything to the state when it was new.

Still can't recognize the wireless. The indicator light stays orange no matter which position the switch is in.

So I google "HP dv6000" looking for a manual, and the FIRST thing I find is a Recall notice http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01087277 Yeah, I know, they're covering their butts by calling it a
"Limited Warranty Service Enhancement" but they basically know that these machines were defective from the date of manufacure. They told me that my machine didn't qualify for the free service because it was 9 months past the warranty extension and tried to get me to shell out $250 for a new mother board.

Maybe I'll try the external wireless card solution, but it sounds like the MB will probably go bad next. I've owned a bunch of HP computers (have four of them working in the house right now) but I'll probably be looking at Dell next time around.

WLan / broadcom hardware disappears


(Originally from BEBEJAZ)
Here's a quick fix for a HP DV6000 that can't connect to the

internet, no network adapter detected in device manager problem:

not long ago, i also experienced this problem
my "HP Pavilion DV6308NR" with Vista OS is not connecting to the

internet
and the network adapter is not found under device manager.
Even the HP Wireless Assistant is not working.
I turned it on but my laptop still says it's disabled.

after a month of turn off, wait for 5 minutes and plug again routine.
I decided to look into the system configuration and here's what I

did:

1. Restart PC
2. Enter "Setup" by pressing <F10> as soon as you see the HP logo

on you screen
3. Go to "System Configuration" by pressing the left button twice
4. Go to "Boot options" by pressing down button 4 times
5. Press Enter
6. Go to "Internal Network Adapter Boot" by pressing the the down

button 3 times, then check if its DISABLED (of which in my case

was)
7. Then press <F5 or F6> to ENABLE it.
8. Lastly, Press <F10> to Save and Exit, then Select YES.
9. After that, PC will continue its boot process and make sure

you're Wireless Assistant is switched on.

And Viola! I can connect to the internet again!
