I don't have a wwan card, due to the fact there is no sim card. Also I have tried to do the options in the bios.

Are you certain you do not have a WIFI/NIC card, the specs here http://reviews.cnet....g=mncolBtm;rnav and the on screen error message suggest you do.
Do you have or can you loan an external USB HDD enclosure such as the one at the attached link;
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817392032
Try removing the HDD and powering up, let us know what happens, does the on screen message change etc.
If you have or can loan an external HDD enclosure first remove the present laptop HDD and attempt to back your data up to another computers HDD, 2nd change the boot sequence to USB 1st and then try connecting the enclosure to the dv2910us with the HDD in it, what happens and finally try the broken Sonys HDD in the enclosure, again what happens.

The picture you provided in post #22 showing an exclamation mark next to Network Adapter in the BIOS and the laptop specs suggests that you do;

Telecom

Select disable network booting, press F10 to save the settings and then Y to accept the changes, restart the computer, let us know what happens.

After doing more research I have found that the WIFI chip is embedded on the MB and cannot be removed;
http://www.intel.com..._n/overview.htm unfortunately if you cannot disable the device in the BIOS or clear the CMOS by removing the MBs battery to restore the factory defaults then you are looking at a new MB/laptop, sorry I cannot suggest anything different.
