HP Pavillion dv5000 wireless connection issue

Just bought this as a used laptop. Everything seems to be working but the wireless connection. When I hook it up via hard wire the internet is accessible. I have a specific DNS ip that my ISP requires to use so I have put that in under TCP properties and as I said it works fine on hard wire.When trying to detect wireless networks it shows NONE available and it is sitting within 1 foot of my own wireless router. I have another laptop it works fine , but it has a swtich you need to turn off and on in order to get on wireless. So I was wondering is there some sort of on/off ''Switch'' on the HP I am not aware of or could this be another issue? Any suggestions would be appreciated for I am getting very aggrevated with it ...lol

Idk if people re still having this problem. But I had it when fixing my sisters laptop. And just hit f10 during the boot and its either in the second tab or third. And its a wlan option. Enable that. And boot up and enable through HP wireless assistance. Hope this helps someone

Go into the control panel, Network adapters and you should see the wireless adapter. If it has a red x on it, it is disabled. If it is disabled, no amount of button pressing will turn it on. Right click and select ENABLE. Then close the panels and hold down the button that is under the light for 2 or 3 seconds and the light should come on. Another thing you can do is replace the keyboard. The button that turns on the wireless is built into the keyboard. If the ribbon cable is bad, or the socket has dirt in it, the button might not be working. You could use a meter and isolate the button circuit all the way to the ribbon cable connector before buying a keyboard too. If you have not taken apart the laptop before this is probably not the problem though. Other thoughts are if the hard drive was recently loaded, xp media center edition might have picked up the wrong driver and doesnt know how to process the "on" signal. Maybe there is a utility or an application that is on the manufacturers website that provides the wireless client - sometimes they have a "transmiter on" clicky box.

Can't use either Microsoft Live Mail or Lookout Express v6 with Belkin Router. Can't send or receive email Can you tell me what the email setup is for either one? Both email programs probably use the same...


Ask COMCAST for the names of their POP-server and of their MAIL-server, and configure Outlook Express to use those names.

Microsoft Live Mail is "web-based" -- all you need to do is to web-surf to their web-site, login, and click "send/receive" or click "compose" and later "send".

Battery with HP Pavillion DV5000 won't work. Do I need to replace the battery or is there a battery charger I could use to recharge the battery? Dianne


You can order a power cable online or pick one up at your local computer store. They should run between $80-150. The battery itself is very expensive to purchase but is rechargeable.

Wireless connection HP Pavillion DV5000


Sometimes there is a button above the Function keys that looks like an antennae with air waves coming from it. Sometimes on HP laptops, you can accidentally hit this button (which is touch sensitive) to turn off the wireless radio. Look to see if this button is lit up. If not, try to see if you can touch the spot where it "would" light up, so that it will light up.

I have an HP Pavillion dv9000, but they are similar.

Now if you are moving the Wireless switch on and off and the light stays red on both sides you probably have a dud of a wireless card. I had the same issue with mine at one point, what I did was get a hold of tech support, they mailed me a box with a prepaid shipping label to send them my laptop. They put in a new wireless card and shipped it back for free(of course it was still under warranty).

If you recently purchased this laptop you can usually log onto www.HP.com, go to the support section and do the chat with an HP tech or call 800-HP invent or 800-474-6836 24/7 and they will walk you thru the whole process.

But again just from your description, you have a dead air card. Call or online hp and have them fix it for you, especially if its still under warranty. If its not under warranty, then hit me back and i can give you a step by step on how to open up the laptop yourself and replace the card
