HP DV9000 Wireless Card Not Working

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

    I have the same HP Computer. My laptop wireless connection works great everywhere else but my home office. My Main office, airports, hotels, neighbor's transmissions which are probably 75ft from my location, all work fine. My wifes apple computer works fine on our Linksys router. I get a good signal probably 40% of the time. Ive tried turning the modem and linksys off and back on, Ive moved the laptop to other locations in the house assuming it could be interference. Sometimes that works, and sometimes it does'nt. I can plug directly into the router and the connection works fine. It is a real puzzle to me why it seems to work everywhere else but my home office. Any help would be appreciated.

  • NoahVail Apr 27, 2008

    I have the same problem as the original poster. My wireless card is dead. It doesn't show up in the device manager or network connectons. Other versions of this notebook have a key combination to power on and off the card (usually fn+F2), but not this one (dv9010us). Anyone know of another key combination?

    I've taken the wireless card and reseated it. I wonder if the switch up front might be bad? Any ideas, anyone?

    Same thing as everyone else. Turned it off, went to bed, woke up turned it on and the wireless is always orange. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled the drivers, but still nothing. Anybody with a solution?

  • Pro Cyon May 18, 2008

    Okay, I have to jump in now. Woke up this morning, dv9000 working fine
    on the wireless front, evening comes, now orange indicator light is
    orange whether switch is in on or off. Even reinstalled Vista, and
    still no dice. What is going on? Has anyone got a good solution yet? or
    rather does replacement of the card work?

  • ArinaChauhan Jun 17, 2008

    I have the same problem, with Pavilion DV9000 (9400us)

    I uninstalled driver then reinstalled, updated bios and I also did the full system restore to factory original default, and I still have the problem, I contacted HP and they said I should send them the laptop but I just came to Finland for 6 months for my work and now I dont know what to do as I do need this PC for my work and I do need wireless network too.

    ANY FIX guys?

    I have the same problem. No connection, light stays orange. Accroding to the HP tech I need to replace the Mini PCI 802.11/bg HS wireless Lan card. Item number 407159-001. I bought at Ambry International. I plan to replace the card as soon as it arrives. i hope today. I will keep you posted. It appers to be an easy replacement.

  • Dick W Jul 18, 2008

    I repalce the minicard and it did not help. I went to on line help with HP, now they say it is the mother board. That has already been replaced in Dec 06. It will take them about 10 days to fix and return. This computer isn't 2 years old. I am using a Linksis dual band card right. I have to question there quality and service. I will be looking for another brand computer before I send this in.

    wireless card not working

  • Dave Rowell Aug 28, 2008

    Yesterday my HP dv9000 laptop "lost" the Broadcom 802.1b/g card and the wireless connection. When I looked for thedevice did not appear under the Control Panel--System Properties--Hardware--Device Manager--Network Adapters-----nothing was found for the wireless card. Amazing!
    After a day looking everywhere for possible problems and fixes.....EUREKA I found "FixYa" blog site and found the answer I needed.
    Posted by "mrcoolbreeze" was the answer with the HP website that led me to the resolution.
    Long story...short, my HP laptop is under the Limited Warranty Service Enhancement and will be on the way to HP for a motherboard replacement.
    This site was a BIG HELP:

    Thanks so much,

    same problem here, HP says not a recall item

  • cook169 Oct 26, 2008

    My HP DV9000 also began with a blank screen. If I hooked it up to another monitor, the graphics were distorted. Upon calling a friend who works on computers, he said my VG card and network card had been corrupted. If it was just the VG card, I could get another install, but without network capabilities, I don't know what to do. I have checked the HP website for recalls, but my particular make and model are not listed. If someone knows what else there is to fix this problem, please notify me. The guy who is working on my computer says I need to restore everything, but I choose not to go that route if there is another solution. Please help--- I live in Africa.

  • Anonymous Oct 26, 2008

    I got my dv9000 back in February of 2007. I had similar problems plus some. One day my wireless competely stopped working, my build in webcam would not work, my sound completely stopped working, and a small piece inside the hinge for the screen broke without any reason to. My computer was withing the warranty so I took it in and they had to competely wipe everything clean, replace the motherboard, and replace a couple other things I believe. I'm sorry that doesn't help with the alternative for you. I'm rather upset because the same piece that broke in the hinge before has broken again so I can't close my laptop or move the screen without the back pulling apart and it coming off the hinge, my webcam still doesn't work all the time (I usually have to reboot my comp a couple times before it will work), my battery doesn't hold a charge (never really has held a charge like it should though), the disc tray pops out on it's own at random times if you just touch it...not even pushing the button. Ugh...I am hoping these things are covered in my extended warranty. Damn you CompUSA for closing your stores a month after selling me my computer and an extended warranty without saying a word about cosing.

  • Anonymous Oct 28, 2008

    same wirless problem..........."network detected"...........but no services are displayed. Sent back to HP and repaired with a new mother board............then 2 weeks later DV9000 stopped completely............again sent back to HP.............not as of Oct 28th 08 3 days after the laptop was returned the wireless stopped working. Lets just say I am clamly talking to HP again. The solution now appears to be a replacement laptop since I dont trust running my business on a computer that has failed 3 times in 2 months.

  • Anonymous Oct 29, 2008

    I have an HP dv9000 that lost the wireless card. I talked to HP and they said the motherboard would need replacing. Apparently some laptops with motherboards that are running the fans backwards and causing the wireless feature on the boards to crash. No way to fix it other than sending back to HP for a "covered" warranty item even my laptop was out of warranty.
    HP replaced the motherboard and returned my laptop with no out of pocket expenses to me.

I hooked up a 2wire wireless card to the USB and I was able to get online, I called HP several months ago when I started having problems and for several hours they had me taking my laptop apart and removing the network card, put it back in and restarting a thousand times. I own four HP computers and still they treat me like dirt. After seeing others having the same problem I'm gonna call again to send mine in. Thanks all.

  • Igor_995 Dec 11, 2008

    The card does not turn on any more with a front panel switch. The card is not listed in device manager - like it does not exist. Since I'm qualified enough and the warrnty is over - I tried checking contacts, replacing the card with the new one - no effect. I tried to check the front panel wireless switch - seems to be in order.

    I have the exact same problem. My dv9000's wireless card isn't working, but when I plug it in "broadband" style, i can connect to the internet. What really bites though is that my printer is linked to the network set up by my laptop. When the wireless doesn't work on my lappy, neither does the printer! The weird this is if I leave it plugged in for several hours, the wireless card eventually kicks in. But, whenever it is cut off, it stops working. The way HP explained it to me was that the motherboard switches off the wireless card on shut down, but doesn't bother bringing it back up upon start up. Nice huh? The only fix they told me is that I would have to send it in.

  • carmen020365 Mar 17, 2009

    I also have the same problem and actually contacted HP originally to find a solution. Needless to say their phone care steps did not work; at least not for long. Well, finally today I find the answer on this website; my laptop falls within the "service enhancement" lot numbers, but when I contacted HP ("sorry for the inconvenience but that is only good during the first 24 months") what a joke!! Of course HP neglected to send an email, letter, notice or anything regarding this problem even though I had contacted them soon after purchasing the laptop! I WILL never buy an HP computer or laptop again!!! Printers yes, computers no way!

Im using and At&t wireless device to connect to the internet and I pay like $70.00/monthly. Does anyone know how to fix it???

  • Igor_995 Mar 30, 2009

    Hi, guys, I wonder you have such problem with HP service.

    It was said much earlier in this thread, that "this service enhancement works more like a recall". In practice that means they do not ask when you bought the laptop, neither they require a purchase slip.

    For me personally it took one hour on the phone with HP service girl first trying some obvious things like rebooting, switching on/off et.c. and when we went through their "to do chek list" she finally told me what I was waiting from the beginning - it has to be sent to HP. Next half hour was filling in my name, address, laptop model et.c. and all the time I was waiting for the question "When did you bought it? Can you please send us a slip?" because it was just above two years. Nobody asked! I got a feeling that they have an instruction to accept for repair all laptops with this kind of failure.

    And finally it worked like magic! One day later I received prepayed FedEx overnight box. In the enclosed paper descibing the problem in addition to WiFi problem I also put the dirty spot on the inner side of the LCD panel which was there from the very beginning. When talking with HP service representative I asked about that spot and obviously was told, that it is not covered by the service extension. Nevertheless I gave it a try.

    I received the laptop back 6 calendar days after I sent it.

    Both WiFi and the LCD dirt were fixed.

    Someware deep in my mind I had a tiny hope they will go for the full refurbishment replacing the keyboard and a battery, but that wasn't the case.

    The laptop got the new BIOS v F.040 which was not offered at the HP web site. Yes, it keeps the fan running, but quite slow, so I can sleep near it.

    They missed one or two decorative gummy plugs that close the screw holes on the bottom of LCD casing - not a big deal, but they are right in front of you when in working position.

    Summarizing all that I'd say my experience is more than satisfactory, I did not expected such fast service. But if they REALLY started to care of 24 month service enhancement - shame on them, it's their fault, not the customers.

  • seanjudge Apr 05, 2009

    I've had my DV9000 for over a year. Suddenly my wireless card no longer works. The light stays orange (instead of blue to indicate it's on).

  • fiochmhar_rc Apr 08, 2009

    I phoned the number given on the link on this page. They told me that the programme ended in March 2009 (i.e., 8 days ago) and that the repair would have to be paid for. This dv9000 was purchased in June 2007. It says on the link that the programme is valid for 24 months after the start of the standard warranty, which would be until June 2009. Any advice? It is NOT acceptable that by waiting for my university semester to be over (and being given no warnings of any repair programme expiry date on the website) that I am left with a poorly-functioning unit.

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.

    NOT JUST 1. (that is the only perspective that)
    DO you need a list.?? it's huge.
    the OP never said, at STAR BUCKS or at AIR PORT
    or at home, nor their home networking parts.

    short (at home)
    wrong wifi device driver on pc.
    PC virus infected (oh boy like #1)
    disk manager shows, errors on wifi chip
    pass phrase lost or wrong protocol used.
    router too far away, or brick walls in house?
    router not configured yet, (my guess this)
    router overheated or full of dust bunnies.
    wifi channels are jammed 2 ways, (ask,)
    lease time set too short, and times out, router
    router setup,but setup wrong!
    router defective, or antenna not attached per instructions,or cat/dog ate them>?
    owner trying to connect ad hoc but that is turned off in router.
    router not secure and setup all wrong.
    router hacked by someone, lock it down, .

    and last.
    if the wifi box is ISP owned , call them.
    as you do not have their passwords to check it.


Its does not work because ur laptops have wi fi on it mine is a hp pavillon dv9000

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.

SOURCE: I own a HP DV9000 my wireless quit working

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.

SOURCE: HP DV9000 Wireless Card Not Working

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?

HP DV9000 Wireless Card Not Working

Did the wireless icon from your machine light up? If no, you need to re-install your wi-fi driver. If you have the cds with you, re-install the driver then switched on your wi-fi. If you dnt have the cds, try checking on the HP site and look for the wi-fi driver.

DV9000Z beep codes

1 long, 2 short on the HP DV9000 is "bad video adapter". Since your video card is integrated into your motherboard, you're looking at replacing the entire board (between $200-$400 on average) + labor costs. It would be more cost effective to purchase a new laptop for $100-$200 more, with full warranty.

Hope this helps, and remember to rate those that offer free help :)
