I have an HP Pavilion dv4000 and am having problems with connectivity to inernet.
First: The icons are not working since they don't show the status of the connection and do not respond to commands like disconnect or disable.
Second: Wireless will sometimes work and sometimes will not, it is also having trouble connecting in public portals.
I tried fixing it with iconfix.reg, but the problem persists.
It has been a year since I bought my laptop so I think it is a good time to format the hard dirve and reinstall all the components.
What worries me is that if formatting the hard drive will wear it out gradually or make it loose functionality. My guess is that it will wear it out with each format.
Please guide me with these procedure since I have no idea how to format the hard drive and the consequences it will have!!
Thank You Very Much
