HP bought several motherboards from the same company in China. These boards work for about 15 months then they can't find the wireless card. This is caused by a defect in the North Bridge chip overheating over time. This chip is not replaceable at the local level. You can send it back to HP for a replacement and sometimes they will charge you $300 - $500, or you can just replace the motherboard yourself. Check with them first since there is an ungoing lawsuit regarding these boards. Either way the only fix is to replace the motherboard. This is also a problem for the dv6000 and the dv9000 models. HP knows that 30% of these will fail.
