HP Pavilion TX1320US computer does not see a wireless card but does see the bluetooth. tried updating drivers etc. Tried removing battery and card cleaned it out with air but still won't see wireless.
This happened to me too. I own the same model. I've been told the wireless card is affected by the model's tendency to overheat. Your card is a goner and won't work again. Don't bother calling HP, a Pakistani will tell you there is no known issue with this model. And don't bother buying a new wireless card from HP. The replacement card is $150. Save yourself time and money, buy a nice cheap wireless card that plugs in via USB. I got mine for $20 on ebay and haven't had a problem since.
Some extra advice: This model will eventually overheat to the point that the motherboard will be ruined and it will no longer start up. The little blue LED light will come on, the fan will start up, but the lights are on and nobody is home. Back up your hard drive while you have a chance, and purchase a new computer asap. Other similar models with very similar problems are covered by a recall by HP, this model is not. When you tell the Pakistani at HP that your model seems to have a known issue and they should look into recalling this model as well, the Pakistani will tell you, "Ma'am, I know there is no known issue with your computer model because I have just looked up your product number." But search the internet, search the HP support forums, EVERYONE who bought this over-priced $1200 piece of junk has the same issues. 11 months out the wireless card dies. 12-24 months out, the motherboard dies.
