    Default Wlan Disabled...no Network Adapter???

    I just reformated my HP Pavilion dv6000 and am currently running it on Vista Ultimate Service Pack 1, I try to connect to the internet using WIFI but when I use HP Wireless Assistant it says "Wireless LAN" DISABLED, "This device has been disabled in Windows Device Manager. To enable this device, use Windows Device Manager." I tried to do this but there is no network adapter. my wireless light switch is ORANGE where it should be BLUE. I dont know what to do so can anyone help me?

    The following symptoms apply to the dv6000, dv9000 and v6000 series notebooks:


    *
    The notebook does not detect wireless networks and the wireless adapter is not detected in the Device Manager.
    *
    There is no video on the computer LCD panel or external monitor.
    *
    The notebook has no power and no active LEDs.
    *
    The notebook does not start.
    *
    The battery charge indicator light does not turn on when the battery is installed and the AC adapter is connected.
    *
    The notebook issues a single beep during boot indicating no power.
    *
    The external monitor functions but there is no image on the notebook LCD panel.


    im afraid you might be seeing the early signs of a motherboard failure.
    that is exactly what happened to me, first a a few weeks without the network adapter working then the flickering screen then no boot up what so ever.

    even if your out of warranty, HP will cover it for free for 2 years at the start of your warranty.
