I've restored my laptop to its factory shipped condition and updated it from hp update and windows update, but it still does not work. I cant even open the hp wireless assistant from control panel, when I click on it, nothing happens!
The laptop is a HP G6000, I have 2 of them and the other is working fine. Under the network tree in device manager, the working laptop looks like this >>
And the one that is not working looks like this >>
As you can see, the WLAN thing that I need, is not there. I have no idea why my laptop would suddenly do this. I've been looking for a solution all day and found nothing. From reading some stuff on the hp site it looks as though ALL of my wireless devices are turned off. apparently they get turned on at the factory and they should not turn off. I have no idea how to turn them back on if my computer is not even picking them up. Even the hp wireless assistant will not open!
I dont think there is a problem with my modem or router because my pc, other laptop and ps3 are all connected to the internet just fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
