Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me. I am using a HP Presairo F500 Laptop, model: GF596UAR#ABA. I've had no problems/issues using the integrated wireless feature until yesterday, when for no apparent reason I lost all wireless connectivity. I cannot even launch the HP Wireless Assistant to troubleshoot. Any ideas would be appreciated.
I just had the same problem with my wife's HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop.
It was working fine, then just stopped recognizing the wireless card. My daughter had been using it, so I was in doubt as to what had/hadn't been done to it software-wise (virus?). So I ran the complete recover to restore everything to the state when it was new.
Still can't recognize the wireless. The indicator light stays orange no matter which position the switch is in.
So I google "HP dv6000" looking for a manual, and the FIRST thing I find is a Recall notice http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01087277 Yeah, I know, they're covering their butts by calling it a
"Limited Warranty Service Enhancement" but they basically know that these machines were defective from the date of manufacure. They told me that my machine didn't qualify for the free service because it was 9 months past the warranty extension and tried to get me to shell out $250 for a new mother board.
Maybe I'll try the external wireless card solution, but it sounds like the MB will probably go bad next. I've owned a bunch of HP computers (have four of them working in the house right now) but I'll probably be looking at Dell next time around.

Check that it hasn't been Disabled/Turned OFF or the like... Find it in Device Manager and "Update" the Driver, see if that helps.

Try to check in the control panel if the hp wireless assistant is enabled or disabled. If it is disabled try to enable it. Check with the wireless button is turned or not. If it is turned it should be in blue colour. Try to shut down the laptop and remove all accesssories and also the a/c adapter. Press and hold the power button of the laptop for 30 secons inorder to remove the static electricity. Then turn off and turn on the wireless button. Hope this will work
Thanks and Regards
