Question about HP Pavilion dv6000t Notebook

1 Answer

HP DV6000 no wireless internet

OK, My wireless internet switch on my dv6000 is always orange, does not mater if the switch is on or off.. When it's working corectly the light should be blue.

I reformated the laptop and reinstalled the drivers and the light turned blue but "in the off position" and it worked untill I rebooted, then nothing.

It's as if the computer does not recognize that I have a wireless integrated card. All drivers are installed correctly with latest version and it did work for a second after format and driver install "in the off position for the switch".

Where would you think the problem lies? Wireless card or mobo?

Any pointers are apprecited. Let me know if I missed something important.

Hard to say when I dont know the exact model.

If it is an Atlantis(DV6000-6499) it is most likely the mainboard, and it might be coverd by an extended warranty.

If it is an Ares(DV6500-6999) you should try updatigng th BIOS first. If that doesnt help i would go for another WLAN card. It might also be a defective mainboard, but that doesnt happen as often on Ares models as Atlantis.

Can I switch out the screen to my hp g60 535 dx laptop with a screen from an hp dv6000 laptop


That will be impossible. The screen from the HP Pavilion G60-535dx is a 15.6 CCFL LCD while the one of the DV6000 is 15.4.

I suggest buying a new screen for the DV6000 if you need to. Or go online and trade the screen of the HP G60 and use the fund acquired to get a screen for the DV6000.

Hope this helps.

Wireless network card


Hi there.
The wireless switch on the front bottom of the laptop, it's suppose to be blue when the button is on the right.
Right click on computer and select manage, go to device manager, and go to Network Adapters, try to see a network adapter called Broadcom, if it doesn't appear, it means that your computer doesn't recognize the wireless card and you may have to reinstall the drivers.
Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck

Problem in my wirless (hp pavillion dv6000)


I agree. Need more info. Is there a driver loaded for your wi-fi? Is it on??? There is usually a switch for your wireless in the form of a pushbutton or slide switch somewhere on the unit. Make sure it is powered on first.
