Question about Microsoft HP Pavilion DV6276US Notebook PC
My dv9000 recently quit finding internet connections. After troubleshooting, I discovered that the light, showing the wireless network adapter is working, was amber, showing that something was wrong. Properties of the Network Adapter show that the "device is working properly" but I cannot get the light to turn blue. The button is a slide button, rather than a push button, but whether I slide it to the left or right, the light doesn't change color.
And, of course, it just went out of warranty.
Making a fairly confident presumption that your laptop is an AMD-based unit, model is....DV9205, DV9310, or DV9410
HP issued a service alert 07122001 covering such AMD-based laptops with your wifi failure, as well as additional failures within your product line. This is a warranty enhancement that will cover the replacement part and labor for you the customer.
HP has very recently started phasing out their older models like the 9005/9010, as the issue alert is basically good from 2yrs of date of purchase.
2 solutions for you....
1) Call HP and give them the serial/model info and inquire about that service alert # mentioned above, see if your laptop is still covered.
2) Replace the motherboard yourself and at your cost
(ok maybe another option)
3) Get a USB wifi card :/

Have you tried restarting the laptop? I have this exact computer, and haven't had this problem. But sometimes instead of disconnecting a connection, it may be disabled, which turns of the wireless all in one. Go into the system controls and enable it
Hope this helps,
