This is a very frustrating problem. It is not firmware, software, bios or the hardware you'd expect. I had the same problem with mine and I eventually came across a casual comment on a site complaining about the button itself.

I discovered that if I carefully pushed the button using my thumbnail on the edges, just enough to feel or hear a click. It wasn't the same part of the button consistently but once I discovered the finesse required to make it work it worked consistently.

    Also Try Windows Key Plus X - that sometimes allows access to the windows mobility centre (which is also accessible through Control Panel . )

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.

Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

When you connect it to wireless make sure you go into control panel / network view your connection right click on local area network connection choose disable then connect to your wireless connection. Right click your wireless icon by your clock choose connect to wireless network or view available local wireless connection.

My wireless assistant has stopped working and the light stays orange


I had the exact same problem...and the wireless adapter was not visible under device manager. The light stayed orange with the switch in either the on or off position. I did all the whole driver update thing and eventually replaced the wireless adapter but no change. Finally I went into the BIOS (F10 on startup) and reset the bios configuration to the default settings EXIT>LOAD SETUP DEFAULTS). It has worked perfectly ever since.

Wireless device switch not working, stays orange and not blue


you probably got a nvidia chip set and that chip is going bad on your motherboard. it's pretty common failure on the 443875-001 hp/compaq motherboards. Sometimes letting the laptop cool down the wifi will come back; but it will go out again!
A usb wifi card should solve this problem; otherwise you'll have to replace the motherboard ($150 + labor).

Wireless not working


Did you disable the wireless card through the BIOS? Sometimes the wireless card can be accidentally turned off through one of the HP Wireless Assistant which will keep it from turning Blue when you press it
