Re: Trouble with wireless card
Something has gone wrong with your internet home connection--obviously nothing is the matter with your wireless connectivity hardware. You should reconfigure your home wireless connection. Follow the directions in Vista or XP help to set up a new home wireless connection. There are various ways to do this, such as through a router. If you have a home wireless router, be sure to set it for WEP incryption, or your neighbors will be able to get on your internet free.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on. Sometimes the wireless switch might be a button to press. Look above the keyboard or sides for a wireless button to press.
Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.
Maybe the wireless card needs to be reseated.
Turn the computer off, remove the power cord, remove the cover from the bottom of the laptop where the wireless card is housed. Sometimes the wireless card might be under the keyboard. Once you find the wireless card, remove the 2 antennas (black and white cables) but remember where they go. Then remove the wifi card from the slot (it might be secured by a screw). Wait 30 seconds then put it all back together and reboot and see if it detects wireless.
You can also try downloading and reinstalling the wireless drivers.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "AcerSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Network drivers for the wireless.
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.
could be a problem with drivers or your internal wireless card ,id try the drivers option first vist HP's website and download the latest drivers for it ,then uninstall wireless drivers and install new ones if still the same i think it mite be a hardware issue ,is it still under warrenty?
Hope this is not too late (or maybe useful to someone else with the same issue).
Wife's computer had the same problem - wokring fine, then one dya, we lost the wireless connections.
Found out that I had accidentally locked the wireless out with the "fn"-F2 key (looks like a little wireless adapter).
Hitting this one more time turned it back on.
First you must sure that your wireless card is working Second confirm your wireless setup is right. Then reset your wireless account. Or your laptop battery cant supply the power to your wireless card, check the metal connection.
This happened to me when I had to install a wireless router in my house using my laptop to initialize the network for the first time. The start up software messed with my settings for wireless detection on my laptop. It turned off the automatic detect for wireless networks in the "Wireless Zero Configuration" (This has the settings for the 802.11 wireless adapters i.e. the one that comes with the R4000 presario)
to get to this hit start>run... and type in this: %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s
go to "Wireless Zero Configuration" and enable automatic startup , if the service is stopped, start it. hit the apply button to save your settings.
