Make sure your wireless switch is turned on. On most computers, there is an LED light that glows blue when the
wireless device is turned on and enabled, and glows orange when off or
disabled. Some newer models use a different color scheme, see
the user guide for more information and the location of your switch.
If your switch is on and the light is blue, you may have a driver problem. Go into device manager and uninstall the drivers for the wireless card and re-install them. You should look on the HP web site for an up to date driver. You can connect ti the internet with this machine by plugging in a Cat5 ethernet cable between the port on your router and the port on the laptop. A blue or yellow cable should have come with the router.
if there is a touch pad across the top with lights for sound mute etc. there is 1 in far right corner top right if it is orange the wireless is off touch the orange light it should turn blue if it does the wireless will be turned on ready to use.
if it does not go to control panel click on programs and unistall the hp wireless assistance and reboot the computer.
then after a reboot the wireless light should go blue.
The light is pressure sensitive. Press it and see if it turns blue. If that doesn't fix your problem then the adapter might be disabled. To check that go into your Network and Sharing center and on the left side of the screen click on manage network connections. There should not be an X on wireless network connection, if there is then right click on it and choose enable.
Did you disable the wireless card through the BIOS? Sometimes the wireless card can be accidentally turned off through one of the HP Wireless Assistant which will keep it from turning Blue when you press it

I had this problem when I first got my laptop!
I have the same brand & everything as you, so this should work.!
the speakers on the computer are on the side of the laptop, under neath the mouse pad & everything.. (there on the side where when your computer is on, theres a little light thats green, and when its charging, theres a orange light on.)
inbetween the two speakers, there are also the plug ins for headphones & microphone. to the left of those plug ins, there are two slide-able buttons. one for blue tooth, and the other for wireless. the wireless one is on the right. when the wireless is on, the button has an orange light beside it. when off, there is no light. there is an icon beside the button that looks like a pole with a ring around it.
turn your computer on & slide the button, give it a minute to search for the networks & it'll be up & running. i hope i could help(:
