Problem with wired LAN connection on HP DV 6000

I recently bought a laptop HP DV6000 and it has problems starting up the 1394 net adapter.
the main problem is that it gives a code 10 error... meaning that it cannot start..
at first i thought it could be some sort of problem when it starts the wireless network connection, but i have disabled it and still gives that error..
the weird thing is that the net adapter works when it wants to, because i have connected through cable more than once.. but for me to achieve that sometimes i have to try that and waste more than half an hour...
i am sure it must be the driver that its corrupt, but the problem is that i have wasted lots of time looking for it without good results, so i think my best option is to format everything and reinstall windows. but the other problem is that it didnt came with the OS cd, and its windows XP media center, and i dont know where to download windows XP media center (i have an original serial, so there is no problem for me to download an ISO of that OS).
does anyone have an idea of what else i can do?
thanks in advanced.

    but do you have any idea of how to get working the lan adapter so i can go to the Internet both wireless and wired?

  • Asdrubal Perez Dec 20, 2007

    thanks dude, by the way, the laptop is specifically a dv6174CL, i
    bought it from Ebay, and it was a refurbished, so that is what i
    strongly think that the network adapter is failing from the fabric..

    i still have my tiny hopes on reinstalling the OS, (which i haven't
    done yet because i dont have the original CD but i have the Serial
    number and i dont really want to download an OS from P2P but i think i
    will if i have to,still i cant really trust downloaded OS, specially
    from P2P)

    you also might be thinking why i dont return it, well the reason is
    that i live in Venezuela, and returning it will make it extremely
    expensive and will waste ridiculously huge amount of time.

    i have already downloaded all the software HP has with no luck. but its
    strange.. the LAN net adapter truly works randomly, and it seems that
    most of the times it is when i need more the Internet and there is no

    anyways. thanks for your help.. if you have any more ideas dont hesitate to put them here

Ok best solution is a remaster 
dont worry you dont need a cd
your computer has a partition of the harddrive that has the recovery on it
that is why your laptop did not come with cds
laptops and desktops (hp that is have not been sold with cds for some years now) trust me I know this i work in computer retail and sell them. 
all you need to do is restart the laptop and hit the F11 button on the laptop continiously till you see the screen go into recovery mode then just follow the prompts easy. 
  You may also access HP Recovery Manager at any time by restarting the computer and pressing F11 repeatedly before the Windows load screen appears.

On the System Recovery panel, click Next . 
PC Recovery will display "Backing up user data and settings."
PC Recovery will begin recovering Windows XP and application files.
PC Recovery will begin recovering user data and settings.
Upon completion, PC recovery will display "The PC Recovery was successfully completed. Click restart to restart your PC or click Turn Off to turn off the PC. Click Restart .
trust me this will work ,

I am on an HP desktop at this time and there is the ability to create install cds from a recovery partition (check for menu items I believe might be in the HP folder) and to reinstall back to the factory is a ansl a menu option as well as a boot option I believe. BEWARE OF THESE RESTORE OPTIONS BECAUSE YOU MAY WELL LOSE ANY PROGRAMS AND DATA ADDED TO THE MACHINE SINCE YOU GOT IT. Always have a backup so you can retrieve your data and be prepared with your application CDs to reinstall, if necessary.

    A couple of obvious items that are probably not the issue -- in the case of the wireless assure distance was not an issue does it fail in the same room with the receiver (router / access point)?

    Do you have up to date virus scanning / security software and do full scans report no infections, etc?

    All virus scanners do not detect all items

    If the machine is working checking with some online scanners could assure the malware (virus, etc) check was more complete.

    Companies with online scanners that might be considered (incomplete list)

    Trend Micro

    F-Secure ( and search for online scanner)


    If these measures do not correct the situation then:

    A local hands on repair person may be better able to repair the machine from it's current state -- and could be a reasonable choice that should be considered. In this case it sounds like there has been numerous potential changes to the configuration and other things for someone in my position to begin to understand the current state of the machine or get you to effectively explain that state to me. Your initial request indicated that you wanted to reload the machine and see if that resolved the situation. If you are set on attempting to correct this error yourself and feel competent to reload the factory software the

    (assumes a windows operating system)

    FIRST STEP IS TO BACKUP YOUR DATA and downloaded applications and any other related items,

    Second gather all software installation CDs to rebuild your system

    Disconnect your machine from the network (until a virus scanner or internet security software is installed you should limit your network access as much as possible)

    Third when your are satisfied this is complete reload the factory software onto your computer. (this step may be multiple if you need to load the operating system and drivers separately)

    Fourth (optional) delete unneeded items from the factory load

    Fifth install your virus scanner / internet security software if not part of the factory load. (you should connect the network to download all updates to your Virus scanner / internet security software -- this may require multiple updates. If your Virus scanner / Internet security software requires it you may need to perform step 6 and return to step 5. Some security packages require software patches from step 6 before they can install.

    Sixth run windows update (from start menu or Internet Explorer tools menu as many times as necessary to complete the updates of your operating system software (often security related) as well other microsoft applications and drivers -- there may be optional items including driver updates and recommended items you will need to explicitly choose. (the network must be connected for this step to be possible)

    Seventh -- hp often includes a software update option for their software and drivers -- locating that option in the menu possibly named HP Update and performing those updates (similar to Windows Updates for the Microsoft code) would be appropriate at this time. If this is not available has a Software and Drivers Doanload link that can identify possible changes in this area.

    This should establish your machine in the most up to date configuration making this a known base for installing (if necessary) and configuring and testing the items that were giving you problems (there is a possibility that some of the preceeding changes could have caused the problem -- let's hope not for now).

    Now would be a good time to experiment and test the LAN, Wireless and/or 1394 net adapter to assure they are working.

    Assuming the issues are resolved -- then

    Then as you consider appropriate reload your data and the remaining applications onto the machine. You may wish to continue testing various features after loading each new item just in case one of them is adversly affecting the others.

    In the DV6000 line of computers there appear to be three models

    DV6000, DV6000t and DV6000z in the US

    Please use this link to determine which model you have

    A DV6000 has a network adapter supporting wired ethernet

    To access the internet using a wired requires ethernet cable and a device to attach to that is ultimately connected often to a cable modem or DSL modem to access the internet. This is done using a cable or wire thicker than a phone wire with connectors wider than a phone wire (8 connector positions wide instead of 4). On the side of your laptop there are two connectors that accept a phone like connector, a narrow one and a wide one. The narrow one is your modem that connects to a phone line to dial out (apparently not of interest now). The wider one will accept an ethernet cable to connect to a switch, hub, router or DSL/Cable modem to access the internet. If the connection utilized supports dymanic address assignment there is a good chance your machine when connected appropriately with a cable will access the internet.

    In terms of wireless we need to determine if you have a wireless network adapter and what bands it transmits on or whether you will need to purchase one. This is why I may need to know which model of a DV6000 you have We also need to determine the configuration of the wireless router you want to connect to as the wireless adapter may require some configuration.

Ihave a dv6000 laptop and and it has a 1394 net adapter but i can't connect to internet what must i do to connect

The 1394 Net adapter that you see in the Device Manager is simply the Firewire Controller....similar to the USB controller. It is not the same as WIFI or have anything to do with Internet connections...UNLESS you obtain a Firewire network adapter dongle and install it. Then you can connect to the Internet in the same manner as WIFI. The dv6000 DOES have WIFI, as well as a 10.100 Fast Ethernet cable connection that can be used to connect to the Internet.

HP DV600 laptop doesn't turn on even on mains.

It sounds like your ac adapter has died, and thus is not charging the battery back up. Test the adapter for power output. If it isn't working, the only option is to purchase another.
