Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
I own a new HP DV9000 Laptop Computer with a 17" monitor. I have not had any problems with it since I purchased it several months ago. Well today when I turned it on it started without any problems except one the Wireless connection never came online. I did several restarts I flipped the wireless switch several times still nothing. if I plug it directly into the DSL Modem the internet works fine but the Wireless capabilities are non existant. can anyone tell me what I can do to try and fix this issue
It appears to me that you might have a firmware/driver issue with your wifi. Even though the specific laptop is a discontinued model from hp and there is no driver support, I could find some older drivers here -> Drivers software <-.
If you a have a problem with your hardware and your laptop is out of warranty, please remove the adapter like in the following video (the video shows a pavillion dv6000 which is an older model but also has the same issue and the part is removed in a similar way as the dv9000) :

Smart ideas to this kind of problems, even burn a linux live CD from a Fedora or manjaro linux or puppy on a thumbdrive
Only to That test your hardware is ok ..
Boot from USB or DVD and see That your hardware is working out of the box, but if there is a Wi-Fi card is in use, disable it in the BIOS if the other card is used.

I have the DV9000 with an Intel motherboard and HP Untechnical support kept telling me that it was just the AMD Motherboard they were doing the special warranty replacement on.
I am a tech certified on all HP products and I replaced two system boards and bought a new wireless modem and it still disconnected after awhile.
I have had my laptop for two years and I asked the last tech so what you are telling me is that HP laptops are only good for two years then you buy another one because she told me to buy a new because the price of a replacement motherboard is $777.00. That is some fragulnackle bull.
Long story short call and speak to customer relations and they will extend your warranty and get it fixed or replaced.

Check the Device Manager to see if the Wireless LAN device is working and enabled. If not reinstall the Wireless LAN driver.
If the Wireless LAN is OK and enabled then sometimes when you bootup the Wireless LAN card doesn't get an IP address from the wireless router. This usually has a red X on the wireless connection icon and sometime you get an error message "Limited or no connection".
To get the router to issue the wireless LAN card with a new IP address, righr click on the Wireless icon and click on Repair.
You can also power down the router wait 15secs and power up the router again then reboot the computer.
If it still doesn't work you could have a faulty wireless card, see it your friendly computer shop can test it for you.

this is not a solution, but it isn't helpless info either like "push the button all the way".. the thing with our laptops (dv9000) it's that our chipset, nVidia, it is often too hot for the motherboard, that makes something melt in it or something and stop working, unless you can get it fixed before everything else stop working you should get that fixed PRONTO. it's around $150,00 or call tech support cause i was told that some of this problems are being fixed by HP dependig on the purchase date .. right now i'm using a wireless internet d-link pendrive. try to get that fixed cause next thing it's going to stop working it's goig to be the entire motherboard.. and we don't want that to happen.. right?
