Question about HP Pavilion dv9205us Notebook
This actually is a recall fix for pavilion laptops. Contact HP. You'll need to check with them to see if your particular model is in need of a BIOS upgrade.
The upgrade forces the fan to run constantly in order to cool the WiFi card which over heats and stops working.
I had this same problem and saw the recall on the internet and recieved a note from HP on the subject as well. It works fine now.

Please check whether your notebook Wireless Adapter is detected in the Device Manager.
Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter.
Then click on + sign next to network adapters and check whether Broadcom/intel Prowireless adapter listed under network adapters.
If it is listed in the Device Manager, then check whether you are able to ping to network.
Click start and in the start search box type cmd and press enter
This will open command prompt ( black window ) . There type ping and give one space and type 127.0.0.1 and press enter. Check whether you are receiving reply and no packet should lost. I mean lost packet should be 0.
If it is pinging to the network then the issue is with the Internet explorer. If it is not pinging or Wireless adapter is not listed in the Device Manger. Then I suspect that the issue is with the Wireless Adapter. However, to isolate the issue please install BIOS update and restart the notebook . To provide you BIOS update I need your notebook product number.
