Question about Computers & Internet
One day i tried to get online but the computer seemed to have forgotten it had wi-fi and had no files on anything related to wireless and then after a couple of months of being wired it made a weird beep and suddenly it worked again but then the next day it didn't work again. i didn't do anything to erase any program and ive tried using system reboot and just updating everthing but nothing is working any help would be appreciated
I had the same issue today with my f700. The wireless assistance switch was amber in both on and off positions, and no onboard wireless adapter was showing in the device manager. I tried restoring the OS to factory defaults and doing the same with the bios with no luck.
I went to the store and bought a USB wireless adapter and installed the software. Somehow that got the onboard adapter to work as well. Go figure. I'm going to hold on to it in case this happens again.

In my experience with HP. They all seem to "shoot craps" 2 weeks to 2 months after the warranty expires, and it's usually fixed by wiping the hard drive clean, ie...remove their recovery partition....this seems to fix the problem in 90% of cases. Of course you have to do a "clean" install of another OS. And I recommend Windows 7, because of the simple fact of trying to find drivers is eliminated.
