Re: motherboard driver

Use this website to download your drivers, (you need to select your model, etc just follow the prompts,

obviously if your networking is out then you need to use a working computer to download all the drivers, stick them on a CD or mem stick and get them onto your lappy that way

No Wi-Fi no light on button

If the button or on/off switch that is provided for the WiFi (may have a line with three curved lines coming off of it as a symbol for the button) is toggled or enabled and the wifi won't turn on, then there is a good chance that the driver for the wifi isn't loaded.

You can tell if the driver is missing by opening the Control Panel, opening System, opening Device Manager and looking for a Network Adapter category. Expand the Network Adapter category by clicking the plus sign and look for a WiFi adapter in there. If it has a yellow exclamation point ! on it then there is a problem with the network card and it needs to be reinstalled. If there isn't a WiFi or Wireless Network adapter in there, chances are it is found under a category called "Other Devices" and it still needs to be reinstalled.

To install it, you will probably have to delete the device out of the device manager (highlight it and press the delete key on the keyboard) and then plug your laptop into wired network connection (usually your router or internet service modem will have a network port that you can plug into directly with an ethernet cable). You'll go to the manufacturer's website, click on support and search for drivers for your laptop. Be sure to go to the network section and download and install the network driver for your system.

I had this same problem and removed the driver and installed the driver from the original driver disk that came with the computer. The driver I downloaded from the HP site would not work. With the original driver the computer works fine - for now anyway.

I got a graphics problem with my HP Pavilion ZD8000 Notebook (lots og pixel garbage all across the screen to where I can barely see anything). Since the graphics are built-in, I'm told that I need to...

they are right about the graphics being built in and it is a motherboard replacement. However check a few things first
Plug in an external monitor to see if the output is ok - if so the graphics chip is working and it is the monitor. uninstall the graphics driver and let Microsoft find a replacement driver. Make sure the ribbon cable is properly connected, you need to open the device to do this.
If none of these then it as a last report you could try a motherboard reflow solution. If it is broken anyway this can't make the situation worse but I have not tried it myself yet, just heard it works. Click here to see it in action. This still wont work if a component is fried.

Reformatting my laptop

OK, the reason ya can only start in Safe Mode is probably because of a "Driver" problem...

What ya need to do now is install the Video, Audio, and Motherboard, Network, etc "Drivers".

Have a look in device manager and see if there are any conflicts etc... ie: any that have a Yellow exclamation mark and if so, use the "Update Driver" and point it to your driver CD.

If ya haven't got a drivers disk then simply go to the HP web site find your type of Lappy and download the Drivers from here, Ya can use Safe mode with Networking hopefully, ya won't don't need the Network Card Driver... lol.. If ya do and still don't have a Driver, use another PC and perhaps copy to a flash drive etc... anyway good luck.
