Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
Hi, I got a friend's HP DV 9005US laptop / notebook, with a wireless
adapter that don't work reliably. Its an intermittent issue, according to
my friend, it worked for a long time, then stopped, I downloaded and
flashed the BIOS it worked, then I was ready to return the laptop did a
double check not the network card does not work again! I flash the BIOS from Hp's Official Website, with the appropriate driver and bios flash, and still NO GO! I sent an email to HP about this issue, to see if they can fix it also seems to get very hot, and the red light is still on. Please? Help? I also checked the switch on the front, both ways to
the little symbol on the outside and away from it, and still don't work.
This is a known issue with these models, its the motherboard. it will have to be replaced. this will not go away with bios updates. here is the link to submit your information to get them to send you a box and get a new mobo put in. time is of the essence they are shutting down this opportunity in november i believe..
btw it is a free repair but you will need the information of the original owner when you call

Just as far as the heating issue goes, you may want to invest in a cooling station for it. They work great! You'll notice a huge performance change.
As for the wireless, I would maybe try investing in a PCMCIA card and see if wireless works on that. That's only a suggestion if you are tired of dealing with it and would like a quicker fix. I would recommend trying to reinstall the drivers for the wireless adapter itself instead of flashing your BIOS.
This is just an example of what you'll be looking for if you do decide to go that route.
