1 Answer

I have an HP Pavilion Dv5 wireless laptop. I have used it for 8 months by logging on and connecting with my desktop. However this morning a screen came uo that said "cannot connect to thi page" When I click diagnose the answer is "Turn on wireless capability by turning on the switch usually located on the front or side." Does this mean that the internal wireless connection has gone bad?

First of all let's clarify that the wireless connection is between your laptop and the router, not between laptop and desktop. The router is the device that gives the data at the computers in order to view them as pictures e.t.c. The report from your laptop means that the wireless connection is not established. This is because either the distance between laptop and router is long, or someone has switched off the laptop's wi-fi. At the front panel or with a key combination (usually Fn+F2) the wireless connection can be manually switched on - off. Try to locate this switch and turn it to on position.

It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.

My HP DV5 1159se was working fine last night and then this morning I go to turn it on as usual and a blank white screen comes up. The start tones are the same and I could even type my password in to log on...


If the inverter board or the back light behind the screen were bad your display would be blank, "but windows would be visible barely" the white screen indicates a bad LCD and must be changed. It is also possible the video cable from the motherboard to the screen has come loose and will need to be reseated back into place to fix it.

How to change the screen on a hp pavilion dv4-1465dx laptop


A) Remove all electrical sources; The AC adapter (Charger) and the Battery.

B) Obtain a multi-compartment container for the screws you will remove. There are screws which look alike, but aren't. You won't realize the mistake until you have the screw in halfway, it is then stuck, and CAN'T remove it. Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling all over.

You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch. Label each egg holder for what area the various screws came out of.

C) Suggest you buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge) They cost from $3 to $8. The area you are going into is relatively safe from static shock, as there are no hardware components that are nearby, and prone to Static shock, BUT, it never hurts to be safe.

Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components of a computer, (Laptop or Desktop)
You probably won't see it, or feel it.

Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source. I connect to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.

D) I don't find a Service and Maintenance Guide on HP Support, but the information from this link should do very nicely,

1) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-from-hp-pavilion-dv5-laptop/

It's a dv5 series, but you'[ll find it crosses over to your dv4 series quite well.

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.
