Thanks, Doc. I found that last night. Not sure which cable is which. Maybe I'll try switching them and see if that helps.
EDIT: OK, both the card and the wires are labeled correctly and in the right position. Definitely time for a new card.
EDIT AGAIN: I got the card working (reseated is again... weird), and now it says that card is active, but cannot find any wireless networks... which isn't the case on any other computer around here. Still working... thoughts are welcome
FINAL EDIT: Alright, I got everything working. Turns out the wireless card functionality was disabled in the BIOS. A quick change and everything is up and running. Oddly enough, I didn't know that was the case until i ran HP's troubleshooting software... the first time HP's crapware has ever done something right for me. Still, it's working.
