Re: NETWORK ADAPTER PROBLEMS FOR HP LAPTOP
Go into device manager click on wireless device and update drivers or in device manager delete wireless device and restart.
on restart sysstem will detect and install found device(wireless)
you may have to reconfigure so check ip address,dns and gateway details first (find them by clicking on your wireless icon and select properties,scroll to internet protocol.select it get details.

If your battery, charger, and DC Jack are ok, then the most common problem is the surface mount transistors on your HP's main board called MOSFET's. They are small 30V N channel 8 pin components soldered to the main board. The boards also have transistor circuits which switch back and forth between a charging and discharging state. However these rarely ever fail. The MOSFETS fail because of the thermal loads which they must endure. Although some notebooks (like the Gateway I'm currently on) have a DC jack which serves dual purpose of supplying DC 19V AND connecting/disconnecting charging circuit. However your HP dv6K does not. However it's worth mentioning that these models have had all sorts of problems...most notably poor thermal design to begin with that usually creates solder connection problems with the main chipset especially on AMD models. Good luck.. :)
You can download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP orVista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click onthis link to download the drivers: - http://welcome.hp.com/country/au/en/cs/support.html
Hi there Go here for the Ethernet driver you need, it is the "chipset" driver you need as the network controller (ethernet driver) is bundled with it. I would recommend downloading all the drivers and backing them up just in case you need them in future.
Please check whether your notebook Wireless Adapter is detected in the Device Manager.
Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter.
Then click on + sign next to network adapters and check whether Broadcom/intel Prowireless adapter listed under network adapters.
If it is listed in the Device Manager, then check whether you are able to ping to network.
Click start and in the start search box type cmd and press enter
This will open command prompt ( black window ) . There type ping and give one space and type 127.0.0.1 and press enter. Check whether you are receiving reply and no packet should lost. I mean lost packet should be 0.
If it is pinging to the network then the issue is with the Internet explorer. If it is not pinging or Wireless adapter is not listed in the Device Manger. Then I suspect that the issue is with the Wireless Adapter. However, to isolate the issue please install BIOS update and restart the notebook . To provide you BIOS update I need your notebook product number.
