Before sending the notebook to repair, I would suggest you to reinstall the wireless drivers on the notebook. Also update the BIOS and then check for the issue. You can download the wireless drivers from the HP Software and Drivers website for your notebook model. I am not sure of your exact notebook and hence I am unable to provide you the web links to download the drivers.

However, if the issue persists even after updating the drivers, then the issue is clearly due to wireless card and the notebook needs an onsite diagnosis by a service technician which is not feasible through online. If your notebook is under HP warranty, then I would suggest you to contact HP support and send the notebook to them to get it repaired under warranty for free of cost. Incase, if you wish to take the notebook to any authorized service center then they may charge you for the service as they do not honor the warranty provided by HP.

The HP2530p buttons are "touch sensitive" and are located at the top of the keyboard just above the F4 & F5 Keys along the strip where the power switch is. Just touch the orange light and it will change to blue (on) this is the same for the volume screen etc, blue is on, orange is off, Just touch and play

I have a hp mini 210 and the laptop wireless button at the top f12 its normally blue when its on but its orange now wich means its off i keep pressing it but it wont come on please help!

Hello, what you need to do is switch the switch to the side. If that does not work, click start and type network connections. Click on network connections. Check to see if the wireless network is disabled. If it is, right click on it and click enable. If you have Windows XP, click start, my computer, and then on the left side my network places, and then on the left view network connections and follow the same steps I listed.

I was at my friends and we were messing around with my computer and it some how turned off the internet connection i have a hp pavilion g6, please help


If you connect to the internet wirelessly through a router, please make sure you did not switch off the wireless switch on the laptop. On HP models, there is usually a blue wireless light at the top of the keyboard if you press it it will turn the wireless on or off.

Wireless button (and wireless in general) does not work

ok. unplug your computer and remove the battery. leave it that way for two full minutes. then put the battery back in and plug the computer back in. These steps reset your computer.

now open it up and crack it up using your usual method. It should be fine. if not get back and I will take you through the steps of making it recognize your wireless modem again. hopefully this will not be necessary.
