I have a tx 1000 with pretty much the same problem. Short answer is : if you are still under warrenty demand that hp replace the entire unit (basically they put together a lousy design, it doesn't allow for adequate ventilation and consequently the motherboard cooks itself and other components attached to it. swapping out parts will only briefly "fix" the problem.
the simplest cheep fix is to get a usb wifi adapter and connect with that (untell eventually the machine will cease to boot, lights will come on fans will run but nothing else will happen)
and you like me will not only be the proud owner of a really cool looking paperweight but also will never consider buying anything from HP again.

    Sounds like your wireless card is disabled. Go to Control Panel->Hardware & Sound->Device Manager->Newtowrk Adapters. Right click on your Wi-Fi adapter and click on "Enable".

Laptop wont connect to the internet.this web page cannot be displ


If you are connecting to a wireless router make sure that your internal wireless is turned on it is usually visible on the laptop and the switch may be on a bar above the keyboard or possibly on the side of the laptop there should also be an icon in the system tray by where the time is shown that shows a pc with little waves coming off of it if it has a red x on it then the wireless is not turned on. If you are connecting using an ethernet cable make sure there are link lights (amber and green) lit up where the cable plugs into the laptop.

Hp pavilion dv6000


I have an HP Pavillion dv9000, but they are similar.

Now if you are moving the Wireless switch on and off and the light stays red on both sides you probably have a dud of a wireless card. I had the same issue with mine at one point, what I did was get a hold of tech support, they mailed me a box with a prepaid shipping label to send them my laptop. They put in a new wireless card and shipped it back for free(of course it was still under warranty).

If you recently purchased this laptop you can usually log onto www.HP.com, go to the support section and do the chat with an HP tech or call 800-HP invent or 800-474-6836 24/7 and they will walk you thru the whole process.

But again just from your description, you have a dead air card. Call or online hp and have them fix it for you, especially if its still under warranty. If its not under warranty, then hit me back and i can give you a step by step on how to open up the laptop yourself and replace the card

Nothing comes up on tv when i turn ps3 on and controllers wont connect


Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

Internet Light Stays Red on WAG54GS Wireless Router


If your router's internet light is red it means to say that there's no connection. You really have to call Tesco.
