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?

  • Anonymous Apr 29, 2008

    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?

  • Ane 8 Jun 24, 2008

    My internet card must be dead. I have turned it on a thousand times, but it still lights red and the internet doesn't work. I've turned the computer on and off many times to see if it helps, but it won't turn itself on.

    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. ambry.com 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:

    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.

    same problem with the network card. 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.

    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.

I read all of the solutions and tried them all, unfortunately non worked. Then I found one that worked for me and fixed it. and fast:
1st - makes sure that your drivers (especially Nvdia network controllers) are installed correctly.
2nd - shutdown , then start and hit F10 to go to BIOS. Find the boot order, IF the networking contoller adapter is disabled, enable it. ! Save at exit and off you go. Immediately my broadcom card was found the moment I switched the button to the right (orange to blue. Everything works fine. My problem started early this morning for no apparent reason, I have the lastest Bios update etc. Good luck.

FIXED.

I have just experienced this problem last night.

SYMPTOMS: HP Pavilion dv9000, Win Vista x64 Ultimate. Running on battery, battery level became critical; windows went into 'Hibernate' mode. Upon plugging in to mains power, and resuming the Windows session, the Wireless is still disabled, no matter what position the switch is in.

POSSIBLE CAUSE: Critical battery switches off the wireless network card to preserve power. Motherboard seems to log this status but when re-connecting to mains power the card does not receive power again. Uninstalling the driver and getting Windows to re-install automatically upon re-boot does not work.

SOLUTION: Charge up the battery whilst the computer is running. You can charge it to a substantial level, say, above 25%. Disconnect mains power so that your laptop is running on battery only. Set your wireless switch to OFF (this is usually to the left position, away from the orange indicator). Now run your computer down to the critical battery level again (perhaps overnight). In the morning when you press the power button, the 'CHARGE' indicator (looks like a lightning bolt) on the front of the laptop should flash quickly, indicating that there is no charge in the battery. Remove the battery from the laptop's underside. Wait a couple of seconds, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Keeping the battery off the laptop, reconnect mains power. Boot up your PC. When at the Windows desktop and all your startup programs have finished loading, switch your wireless on (to the right position). You should now have a blue light, and wireless should once again be working. You can now re-insert your battery. You might have to setup your wireless network connection again as mine seemed to be 'lost', but at least hopefully the main problem is now fixed.

If your wireless network suddenly disappears out of your Device Hardware list, and no Blue Light.
This is what I did to repair it....
1. Turn off Computer and remove battery as a precaution.
2. Remove the back cover which accesses the memory cards.
3. Next to the memory card you will notice a 1 x 2 inch broadcom card. Remove the 2 screws securing it and carefully remove the card, do not disconnect the 2 wires.
4. Clean the gold contacts at the edge of the card (with a pencil eraser) and wipe clean with a cloth.
5. Insert the card back into the slot and screw it back in.
6. Replace cover and power the computer, Wireless Blue light should come back!

You need to do 1 of 3 things. One, take the battery out of your laptop and totally disconnect it from the power. Once you do that hold the power button down for a minute to get the excess energy out of the laptop it really helps a lot. :You might hear clicking. Next, try to reinstall the drive, which can be done by doing to the Device Manager application. Press the vista icon, type in device manager and then re install a driver, your wireless driver. Your computer will help you troubleshoot it, it's pretty helpful. Or, I have the EXACT same laptop, i've had mine replaced 3 times. Once for a bad motherboard - which is a recall on these laptops, another for a bad screen, and the 3rd time for a cracked display hindge. If your laptop is slow or blanks out, freezes, etc. you need to call HP right away to get your laptop replaced. It is a huge recall on them!!! The wireless thing is the same problem I had, so have them replace it!! They replace it even if your out of warranty so don't worry about that. ;) Hope i've helped.

Huge numbers of these 6000 and 9000 series laptops have been recalled; due to damage caused by overheating caused by the bios spinning the fan incorrectly.

Main symptom is dead wireless, followed by dead mainboard.

I called HP support and they installed a new mainboard in mine. Replaced the screen and hard drive to boot! They send a box with a label and I had it back a week after I first called.

I'm sorry I don't have links. The recall was due to a class action in 2007. I think the recall began around November 2007. It's not widely advertised.
I may have read about it on theinquirer.co.uk .

Good Luck.

I found the quick fix for mine. There was an HP printer (DeskJet F4100 Series) that came with my laptop when I bought it. When my wireless goes out, I make sure to have a program open and my internet hard-wired in. Then, I plug in the printer to USB port and shut my laptop. I wait for a few so the laptop can go to sleep and then open it back up. Wha-lah! The wireless will work for a few days. Hopefully, this helps out others as well...

Just give HP a call and have them ship you out a box for free repair. no home repair can be done to undue a motherboard problem. I just got off the phone with HP and their sending me my box to send it to HP. Don't worry about warranty either, i got my notebook from a friend 2 years ago so its already out of warranty but this is more like a recall so its free.

Guys,
I had the same issue with my HP Pavilion dv9000. One day the wirless was working and the next day...nothing. As my laptop is out of warranty, HP wanted to charge me £267.62 to repair. To add insult to injury, they were going to take two weeks to repair it!
I solved the issues as follows
1) Closed all applications 2) Detached battery (laptop running on mains only) 3) Detached mains supply 4) Wait 10 secs, re-attach mains supply and then start windows normally 5) Hey presto - your wireless should be working again

Guys here's the real fix! Very simple to fix. Just install BIOS (?1) WinFlash for HP Notebook System BIOS (for Notebooks with AMD Processors) - Microsoft Windows/Vista-Based This will update your BIOS and activate your internal network adapter/ wireless card. I recommend you to reinstall your wireless Driver or download this to HP site:

This will work in windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8
Hope it will solved your problem.

Its a flaw on notebooks with HP powersaving plan, plug the mains power in, goto taskmanager and disable the ethernet connection.
(Not the wireless connection).
Change the power plan (right click the battery icon) and select performance.

Restart the notebook with the mains still connected, and it will work for wireless connections. (you may need to reconfigure the wireless routers connection tho)

Happy christmas and good luck!

Dv9000 - if your wifi is not working don't waste your time with the simple driver related issue, just call HP they will walk you through the needless step process to diagnose your problem. If there is no wifi that means there is no WIFI drivers loaded in device manager, so nothing to uninstall. DUH!!!!. Also if you want to take out a step from the HP support guys just update the bios, as of the wirting of the tantrum :D for the DV9310US it was Bios F.40.

Prior to calling HP
If step 1 cannot be done because there are no wifi present then move on to step 3
Step 1 uninstall the wireless drivers
Step 2 reinstall wireless drivers
Step 2a did reinstalling help? no go on to step 3. if it did well it worked this time. hahaha
Step 3 Download Bios update
Step 3a1 If you can plug in a ethernet cable on your laptop download bios update there, if not on another computer waste a cdr and burn it to the disc.
Step 3a Plug in laptop before running bios update
Step 3b Watch laptop power down
Step 3c Turn on laptop and press F10 when you see the HP logo
Step 4 Verify the newest version in bios F10 for setup
Step 5 Reboot laptop
Step 6 move wifi switch to the right, did the light change? no "Call HP"

Once the above is complete call HP or assuming your wifi works, probably "NOT". Once you get your CSO number and receive the laptop box, put your laptop into the box, no battery, no accessories, no left over cdrom or dvdrom, and if you value your data, pull out the harddrive and store in a cool non damp non electrical environment.

I provide no warranties on this information, if you decide to do any physical checks to your laptop harddrive, you do so on your own terms. If damaged it is your own fault. Remember ground often, it will be the best if you don't touch the electrical stuff. :D

The following steps, which are described by the experts via the Hewlett-Packard phone number, help you to resolve problems that may occur with the HP DV9000 wireless card and network connection.
Step 1: Install the wireless card's driver to your laptop. Insert the software installation disc into the disc drive of your system and continue with the instructions that will appear on the screen. If you do not have the installation disc, download the updated version of the driver from the HP's official site. If you're sure that the wireless card's software is installed, the device's driver may need to be upgraded. Continue to the step 2.

Step 2: Update the driver to the latest version. First of all, click the 'Start' menu, right-click the 'Computer' or 'My Computer' icon, and click the 'Manage' option, followed by the 'Device Manager' in the window's left pane that releases to open the 'Device Manager' window. Click the plus symbol next to the 'Network Adapters' to unveil your wireless network card. Click the name right side and choose the 'Update Driver' option.

Step 3: Reinstall the wireless card's driver for your HP laptop. For removing the driver, navigate to the 'Device Manager' window. Double-click the name of the wireless card; click the 'Driver,' and then 'Uninstall.' Continue the on-screen instructions until the driver is removed. Once it's, then reinstall the drivers via the installation disc. If you don't have the software CD, download the driver from the website.

Step 4: Check that the Wireless card is connected or installed correctly on the laptop. If you use a PC/PCMCIA card, remove it from the port and connect it back to. If you have an internal wireless card installed, open the laptop covering (try to prefer your laptop's manual instructions) and try to remove the card and then plug it back into the slot to reset it manually.
Additionally, you can also perform theMicrosoft System Restore to get your laptop files back to a date and time while wireless connection was working fine.

I've troubleshot this problem since I managed to recover the pc from a total shutdown after going into hibernate mode. It was powering up, but looping in a on/off power cycle.I left it for six months, had totally given up on it, had decided it was the motherboard and there was nothing I could do til I got back to the States (I'm living in Europe now). Then, one day, my sheer determination to not be beaten by this poor choice of computer had me unscrewing the hard drive cover. I pulled it, re-seated it, and the first time i tried to power up, it looped again, second time, it booted! I was so smug it was unreal! I had lost the wireless just before the hibernation loss, and had tried everything, re-installing drivers on device manager, which it would do, but nothing changed. when i recovered the computer, every time I tried installing the drivers for the WAN miniport and it's ancillary components, I got this message saying that an error occurred in driver installation and it could not be completed. I went to Microsoft, reluctantly, and actually started to do an update, and cancelled it before anything came across! (yeah, I was that desperate), after having lost my computer completely in 2008, when MS Update was still on automatic (durh, I knew better, but just neglected to shift to manual) a Service Pack automatic update just shut the whole thing down. It wouldn't even power up, this was all right after I got it, and I was livid, but managed finally to get power, a boot, and did a system restore to a few hours before it went down and got it back. I have had sooo much trouble with this machine, but it has sharpened my tech skills beyond measure.
Anyway, back to the accidental fix for the wireless I found last night, I ran chkdsk and as soon as it completed, that beautiful little blue light was on! I had gotten it back on a fluke one day right after I recovered it from hibernate shutdown, but once I rebooted, it was gone again. I'm just not going to reboot, ever again! haha, I'll let you know how I manage to accomplish THAT! I dunno, maybe it's reconnected with it's drivers through chkdsk and it will hold, I'm on wireless right now!
I'm going to be in touch with HP when I go home. These books notoriously run waaay too hot, I have to keep a usb fan under mine at ALL times. And it heats up most when I'm watching vids on full screen.
Thx NVIDIA....Surely, I could qualify for a Tier 1 tech support position at HP after all this ****! I am just tenacious to a character flaw and will NOT be outdone by a machine, so I stay after stuff until I get it, accidental or not, Many of the world's greatest discoveries have been found in search of something else!
Sorry this is so long winded, it's been a saga, I'm sharing the saga and the potential fix at the same time!
Good Luck, anybody that finds success with this, please let me know, it will help me verify if what I did was what brought it back!

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?

    HP has had allot of problems with the 6000 and 9000 units and in response has offered an additional year from date of purchase.
    Its worth a shut. Doesn't cost a dime.
