You keep mentioning ( come out of standby ), You do know don't you that some systems are having problems with coming out of standby. A bios ( firmware ) update to the motherboard may fix this, but again it may not. If HP is saying that the system is working ' correctly ', then it probably is for the bios that is available for the system at this time. I would suggest not using the STANDBY mode but instead when you get done with the computer, shut it down, and restart it when you are ready to use it. I would like for you to try that possibly several times before deciding that it doesn't work for you. If you find that a complete restart of the computer doesn't alliviate your problem, please come back and let us know. I am assuming that you are in an area that has good wireless reception of course. Assumptions can be bad for a tech's health if you know what I mean.

    the website below indicates that there is numerous models of the DV 6000 laptop. A person should verify exactly which model he has, then access the page of that model and download the necessary drivers or bios updates that may help him/her fix their issue. You may indeed be using a Broadcom wireless system, normally those are quite good, but still a firmware ( bios ) update may be needed. If this helps, please let us know. http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_...

How do i turn the wifi on on my lenovo ideacentre b3?


Step 1:
In order to connect to a wireless network and the Internet on an IBM Lenovo machine, you must first enable wireless networking via your computer's operating system. Allow about five minutes to enable your IBM Lenovo computer's wireless capabilities.

Click the Windows logo in the bottom left of your screen. Select "Control Panel" from the menu. Click the "Network and Internet" icon in the Control Panel. Click "Network and Sharing Center." Right click "Wireless Network Connection" icon. Select "Enable." Enable Wireless via Switch Check your IBM Lenovo laptop for a wireless networking switch. It is usually on the front of the computer above the keyboard. Slide the wireless switch to the "On" position. Look for a wireless light on the front of the laptop. In some cases a light will come on to indicate that wireless networking is active. Other switches, when active, reveal a green strip of plastic.

Why will my HP Pavilion dv6000 not read my router, what do I have to do toget my card to read wi fi signals?


First of all you have to make sure that your wireless network card is turned on...I believe the power switch is right below the edge of your left hand (right in the front of the laptop). the light should turn from orange to blue. When it does, it will either notify you of existing wireless network or you will have to manually have to search for network.
In Windows XP, simply right click the network icon [located in your bottom right corner of your screen] and click "View Wireless networks". In Windows Vista, left click on the wireless network icon [same location] and click connect or disconnect to now available wireless networks. In windows 7, the procedure is similar to the one in Windows Vista.

With secured networks, you will need the network key in order to connect, in others you will have to have your Media Access Control [MAC] address added to a MAC filter list in order to allow you to access the network...
What ever the case, it all depends on 1] Ensuring your wireless network card is turned on 2] Your computer is set to receive an IP address automatically...
I hope this was informative

there can be many steps to solve this dilemma and the easiest by far would be to remotely access your computer via the internet but aside from that, try logging in to your wireless router by opening internet explorer and then up in the URL instead of typing in www.whatever.com instead, type in the following:

My hp pavilion dv6000 laptop does not turn on, the blue buttons light up, but the screen stays off


Try it without the rechargable battery connected sometimes the battery shorts and causes problems.
Do you have FN[function] keys at the left side. touch FN key with something else and see if screen comes back.Sometimes you can turn off the screen to send it to the back connected monitor.Connect (extra if you have) an external monitor to the back (vga) connector.If that shows, then you have to ""flutzz" with the FN(function) & F1-F12 keys

HP Pavilion dv6000.When turn on,makes 1 long sound and 2 short and monitor stays dark,but after few trys switch off and switch on (somtimes more,sometimes less),starts work,but next time the same again...


One long beep and two short is usually an indication of issues with the RAM memmory. It could be indicating the RAM chips are bad, or you may have an intermittant short on the motherboard.

My HP wireless doesn't work? I don't have wireless connection on my compaq laptop anymore.


check your wireless adapter is on... the switch is on the front of your laptop and you should show a blue light when it's on, also go into device manager and see network adapters.. you should have 2 (the wire one built-in and your wireless network adapter.. if you only have one network adapter, check the front and see if the light indicating the status of your wireless network adapter is amber.. (if it's showing amber and you're sure it's in the on position you may have a motherboard problem and you may need to send the system back (I just had one of those with a compaq computer and since the item was within warranty the fixed in a week)

if your wireless adapter light is blue and you see your wireless adapter in device manager follow this instructions and you should be ok,

My HP Pavilion dv6000 the wireless connection stopped working and the light does not go blue to connect to internet. This happened 2 days ago. I can connect using a cable.


Check if it is only a software problem. Usually the blue light indicator functions with the physical slider switch. So even it is disabled in the network properties the indicator still lights when the physical switch is at "on" position.
