Question about HP Compaq nc8000 Notebook
Can't get my wireless to work, I download the drive from HP, but it would not turn on the wireless
I don't mean to be simplistic, but did you flip the switch to turn it on? I don't see a laptop model in your question, but most laptops have a physical switch on the side, or front which physically disables/enables the wireless card.

Are you sure that it is red and not amber?
Amber, means that an integrated wireless device is turned off.
In which case these steps will help you.

I had the same problem but I solved it by downloading a driver from the HP support web site. You might have to try out a few different drivers before you hit on the right one.

SOURCE: my wireless light on my
I had that same problem, I turns out about a day later I dropped the laptop on accident and it started working again. I would not advise my way of getting the button to work again.

if its still under warranty get in touch with HP they have had hardware issues with this
there are things you can try
START>All Programs>accessories right click command prompt and left click run as administrator In window that opens enter at command prompt sfc/scannow
this will scan all your windows OS and replace any corrupt files/ registry Entry
you can go to device manager and uninstall the drivers the issue or problem is that the driver simply dissapears (which says to me hardware fault) there is a trick to remove old drivers on vista that naturally you wont see
click Start> RIGHT Click computer> select PROPERTIES>click ADVANCE (tab) you will see ENVIROMENT VARIABLES (button) click this system variables box click NEW button box should appear
type in NAME BOX
type in VALUE BOX
right click computer select manage>device manager click VIEW show hidden devices
to remove right click specific device select uninstall
hope some or any of this helps, if i can help further i will try hp also and if all fails could be a dongle, i still say its a hardware fault and HP should do a recall.
