This is very common for the HP dv9000 series laptops. The problem is the controller chip. You can either do a reflow or replace the motherboard. check out the DIY guide from www.net2005.com if you wan't to try fixing it yourself. Or get your self an USB wireless card and problem solved.
I have an out of warranty dv9000 and haven't had wireless for months. I just discovered HP issued a recall for the wireless and other problems with several different Pavilion and Presario models. For the wireless problem with the dv9000 they are replacing the motherboard on all notebooks in or out of warranty. I was wondering if anyone has had the repair done under the recall and how it turned out? I'm also wondering if HP is still cosmetically trashing notebooks when they are sent in for repair? Here is the link for the recall: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...842189&lang=en
My thoughts is that you may have had a Microsoft update to which has knocked out your drivers for these features. You may have to go back to HP's Web site and re-load the drivers for these two features. Blessings, A/V Media Guy
1. Go to Start, Control Panel, syetm.hardware, device manager. Under network adapters make sure your wireless is there. Note: there is a recall for HP laptops including the DV9000 because they eractically lose their wireless settings. If this is the case call HP tech support.
2. Assuming your wireless card is listed (not the 1394) and there are no red or yellow check marks we can now go back to control panel, network connections.
3. If wireless connection is not listed then click the task Create a new connection. This brings up Welcome to new connection wizard. At this point you should see a line that says to connect to a wireless network in range . . . If this line is there click this then select your SSID (network name). If this line is not there and you're sure the network switch is on and turned blue then you'll need to call HP.
The wireless switch is located just behind and to the left of the wireless LED. The wireless LED is located on the left of the bottom half of your laptop looking from the front between the battery, power and harddrive LED's and the audio jack sockets.
