Intel PRO wireless 2200BG for HP DV4000 Problem

I have an old HP pavilion dv4000, with product code DV4010AP to be exact. "AP" for asia pacific i assume. I myself have expertise on fixing computers but mostly desktop PCs and I have also been a tech support for both dell and toshiba laptops. This DV4000 was assigned to me by my company, and the wifi device does not seem to work. I have tried downloading the drivers because the original CD is lost. However, even if I tried installing the EXACT drivers directly from the HP website, I can't get it to work. Windows can detect the wifi device because in the Device Manager it comes up with a yellow bang and calls it a "Ethernet controller." My NIC and bluetooth works fine, its just that crazy wifi. Because of this, I also had my windows operating system XP SP3 clean reinstalled from scratch because I thought it might be a registry issue, but STILL I can't get it to work! At this point, it should be a hardware problem since I reinstalled xp, but then again IT IS BEING DETECTED by windows in the device manager, so I assume that I might not have the exact drivers. I also tried running Ubuntu 8.10 on it, still the same, but I don't know how to install drivers on it and I'm not interested in running Ubuntu. I was able to find out in Ubuntu that I have an INTEL PRO wireless 2200BG. Now I DID download that driver from HP and even from the INTEL website, BUT STILL NOTHING! I even updated the BIOS just to see if that was the problem but still no. PLEASE HELP! I don't know if it is a known issue with it or a patch from microsoft would do the trick. I would greatly appreciate any leads. Thanks!!

There is an on off button on the top of the laptop. I know its a stupid thing but did you check it to make sure it was on. I have had this issue a few times.

This used to be a common problem with HP laptops. This is a Hardware problem and it should be serviced by authorised HP dealers. They'll replace the wi-fi component but sadly this problem can occur again.

It's the Super I/O chipset, or Integrated Circuit.

Uses an Intel 915 motherboard chipset, that is the mobile version. (For laptops)

Probably the Intel 915GMS, or Intel 915GM; since it uses Intel GMA 900 integrated graphics.
No matter because they both are paired with the Intel ICH6-M.
Intel part number 82801FBM

No audio driver for xp

download from hp this driver to your my_documents folder and install the software for the driver... then restart your computer

does this work... solution

or goto start > control panel > system > device manager show up

look at your audio device in the list... does it have a yellow explaination point.. no driver installe

a red mark mean on the audio device means that the sound chip is bad... and you need to ship the board to a repair shop ... or rma the laptop for repair if still under warranty

also go under the bios to be sure the sound is turned on .. there sometimes is an option to turn off the sound functionality

HP Pavilion dv4000- Can't connect to wireless internet

Is your chipset wireless network program taking over?
Often an internal system program will take priority when connecting to wireless networks.
Think of it like siblings who squabble over attention.

If you can find any other programs which are acting in this manner, I'd suggest telling them "do not use this when connecting" and then see if you can then use your main program.

Also - is your network secured and / or hidden? Did you reset your router? Sometimes this helps, too. =D
