My laptop wasnt recognizing the wireless card. I removed the card (obviously the laptop was powered down and no battery). After that the laptop got a real problem. All leds comes to blue but no video, no beeps and no hdd led activity. Any sugestions?
My suggestion you bring that to the service center for the expert operation because all part of your laptop is highly sensitive with the electro static that will cause for the damages of some component..

Basic troubleshooting for a portable no post is a fairly straight forward process.
Disconnect any external devices and power the system on, see what symptoms occur. Does the system have power? Does it have any Video? Does the system flash LED lights or beep?
If the system is getting power but not starting, and not indicators give any troubleshooting hints, then we simplify the system by removing all items we can and see if we get basic function. Items to remove are Battery, RAM modules, Wireless Cards and the drives. Depending on the design, some of these can't be removed by the user but most can be removed.
If the system will now power on and give some sort of error (LED FLASH, BEEP etc) then Add 1 RAM module back to the system and see if you get video and errors about not being able to boot. If you do, start adding items back to the system one at a time and identify the failing component.
If nothing makes any successful boot, then most likely failure is the mainboard (Motherboard) of the system.
I've had similar problems with wireless cards refusing to turn their light blue until the driver was updated via windows update. Obviously I had to do this using a wired connection. Try connectiing with a wired connection and udating until windows update tell you everything is up to date then restart your laptop and wait for about 5 minutes before you press the on/off button on your wireless. You can also try removing the wireless card (physically I mean) rebooting, shutting down and replacing the card then rebooting again. If you know anybody that has the same kind of laptop ask if you can try their wireless card to see if it's a fault with that. Sorry I can't help more.
1. remove all ext peripherals 2. remove battery 3. check first the ac adapter if it has led on (make sure ac adapter is not connected to the laptop) 4. try any other wall socket check if ac adapter will led stay on 5. if ac adapter stayed on then connect to laptop (without the batter) 6. after connecting the ac adapter to laptop check if the ac adapter led turned off, if yes then check ac adapter laptop pin on the side if is loose or damage. 7. if ac adapter stayed on after connecting to laptop press now the power button on the laptop just once. check if the power led on laptop will turn on (check if power led stays on or it blinks amber) 8. if it blinks amber then remove all CRUs such as dvd drive, memory, hard drive and wireless cards. put them back one at a time. make sure you turn off laptop when putting removed hardware. this will check and isolate which causing the power led to blink. 9. if the power led stays on then turn it off again then wait a couple of seconds then press and hold on Fn key then press power button. wait for about 5 minutes while the power led is steady on, until you hear beeps once you hear beeps it means that LCD has problems. try then connecting laptop to an external monitor if it shows display there. press on Fn + F8 to toggle the display from LCD laptop to the ext monitor. if no display replace the motherboard. if it has display replace LCD.
1st try a known good AC adapter, see if any change.
2nd, remove all drives, battery, external devices, RAM and wireless cards and see if system powers on and gives memory beep code error. If no change, replace motherboard. If you get beeps, power off, install a RAM module, see if system posts. If it does, add items till you identify the failed component. If no go, replace motherboard. Motherboards are roughly $150 on EBay
If you are getting a power LED and no other indication, you apparently have a NO POST situation. Remove, drives, RAM, Battery and Wireless cards/modem and see if any change. If you get a beep code, install one RAM module, try again. If system posts, then add items one at time till fault is located.
If no change, replace motherboard
Sorry to here about your DV9005us start up problems. 1st. It would be good to know any other problems you may have had in the past either related or non related to you current problems.. 2nd. Has the unit been dropped ? 3rd. The 6000 - 9000 series units are all pretty much the same as fare as board layout. The top Led's and connected by a small flat ribbon cable. This cable is a 12 pin piece of junk, which you have two in your unit. Both are located on the bottom left under keyboard. At that connection point the cables push in and are in most cases a solid connection. However, they connect to the Push button - Led Strip directly above the keyboard and at those two connections, HP uses a clamp or push down connection. For years I have seen the similar problems with the Led's flashing on the Led strip. Also, you have said the unit at times does not power on, I would be willing to bet, that is why. One of the 12 pin cables controls the Power startup button, the other feed display information and touch since controls. Ok, you must decide if you want to take on the repair yourself, or have it done by a technician ? If you interested in doing this repair yourself, you will need to (A) remove any media from the unit along with the battery. (B) Remove all of the fallowing parts and keep in a static free, dry place, away from your work and tools. (C) Remove the two plastic covers underneath, covering the memory and Hard Drive. (D) Remove the Hard Drive and set in safe place. Remove the memory and do the same. Note... Just to the right above the memory is the CMOS battery (2 pin) Red and Black leads. Disconnect where connector meets the board. (E) With the unit on its back and the battery compartment at the top, remove the first row of screws (6) set them aside. (F) Now, in the battery compartment, you will see (3) silver screws, remove them. Note... You do not have to remove any other screws at this point on the bottom of the unit. The remaining screws are for the keyboard, which we will leave in place and the DVD drive. (G) next you will want to flip unit over and firmly with both hands grasp the Led cover or strip and lift up. Note... This Led panel is connected in (3) places. 1 and 2 are the ribbon connections, the third (3) is your sound connection (4 pin). (H) Once the Led panel is loose, stop the Led panel should be able to fold over the keyboard, revealing the (3) connection points. Note... These connection points are very delicate and easy to break. So be carefully.!! (I) It may be a little easier if you disconnect the (4) pin sound connection. This will give you a little more run and flexibility. (J) At this pint you can lift the gray plastic tabs a few mm and re-secure the two flat cables. Note.... These cables are very easy to damage, so handle with care. You may want to reseat one at a time, remembering these flat cables need to be completely seated. After you have reseated connections and reinstalled Black (4pin) connector, fit Led panel back. Note. you will here it snap into place. Hold down the power button for 15-30 seconds. This will clear the CMOS. (H) Flip unit over, re-install the hard drive and (1) piece of memory. Install the cover for the Hard drive compartment. (I) re-connect the CMOS battery. (J) install (3) silver screws in battery compartment. The remainder of the screws can wait until you have finished. Install battery. (K) Flip unit over and connect to power source. Now this time I want you to touch the Led strip. The strip should bring uo the unit in Quick Play, (unless you have deleted it.?? See if the Led's are still blinking ?? The unit should come into the BIOS screen asking you for the time and date. Note.... If you can stay in this BIOS screen without shouting down, and the Led's are not blinking, you’ve done it... After setting the date and time, you may want to power down the unit, flip it over and replace removed screws.
If you are smart, you will run over to HP.com and download and FLASH your BIOS to current date. Please make sure the unit is working 99% before updating the BIOS. While flashing the BIOS, Do NOT TURN OFF UNIT. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ALL OF THIS WAS JUST A WAIST OF TIME. Reader, please rate this information, weather you agree or disagree, it lets the technician who is typeing this information,(one key at a time) it was worth the effort.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
If the system will not power on with a known good power source, then you need to remove the drives, RAM, modem and Wireless cards, then try to power on with just the AC adapter.
If the system still fails to attempt to POST, then it will need a motherboard. If you get Lock Light LEDs and beeps, then put RAM back in the system, and try to start it again. If still no video or power indications, replace motherboard.
