I have to use a Belkin plug in adaptor to get innernet. I had a total system crash and lost everything. It hasnt been the same since. I had one of the disks that came with the computer but for some reason not the other. The one that I diddnt have I guess is the system restore disk. My girlfriend has over time found some of the drivers and stuff but not all. HP says they dont have the stuff so I dont know what to do.

It looks like your normal power cord from our outlet plugs into this unit which then plugs into the power adaptor for the computer, there should then be a point to plug in the phone line if used and then a cord can be taken from this unit to the computer modem connection and one to the separate phone. visit the belkin web site and search for the model no.
Alternatively you can use the Microsoft troubles shooter by going to the control panel, picking network and sharing centre, then adaptor settings and selecting your adaptor. Then right click and from the menu, select diagnose. This will reset the adaptor if it has become locked up.
Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.
Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.
check power supply adaptor and batteries if they are supplying enough power, if you can borrow a power adaptor and spare battery try replacing them with one your notebook has.
if it works then your adaptor and batter are out, normaly if the adaptor stops working the battery would have died down too as you would have not noted till the notebook totally died down.
HP Pavillion have automated system Recovery built in check what you have to press in order to restore it to factory status. NOTE that this will erase your documents and stuff. So back the important data up first! If i am not mistaken it has to be some CTRL+F10 or CTRL+F11 to activate. Check manual to make sure. If it should work (because you're pressing the right key but it is not working. .... go to CMOS SETUP and make sure that AUTOMATIC system RECOVERY is enabled. This should install everything nicely for you and you should get it exactly as it was when you bought it.....
The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.
There could be some sort of interference going on.
There are two ways that you can fix the problem:
1) See if your wireless router can support a bigger antenna. Linksys has that feature for their routers.
2) Disable your wireless adaptor and go with a USB wireless adaptor or better yet a PCMCIA adaptor if your computer has one. That will increase reception since these devices have an antenna like shape to them.
The connection between the laptop's internal wireless antenna and its wireless card may been disconnected. Best to take it in to a computer shop for fixing. If you want to fix it, open the PCI-E cover on the bottom of the laptop, then reconnect the antenna wire. If that doesn't work, get it serviced.
