Hello, This is the first time I am using this forum so I hope someone can please help me. I have had to clean install Windows 7 Home Premium  on my HP Pavilion G6-1234sa now I am unable to turn the Wifi adapter on. I have tried all the drivers listed on the HP website under the HP Pavilion G6-1234sa model and none of them work, I have tied to turn the Wifi adapter on with Fn + F12 and just pressing F12 alone but that doesn?t work either. I have gone through the entire forum to find a solution to the issue I am facing however none of the suggestions I tried worked. Please can someone guide me to the correct Wifi driver for this model and how I can turn the adapter on? These are the drivers I have tried for this model: Realtek RTL8188CE 802.11bgn Wireless LAN Driver (SP57049)Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN Driver June 2011 (SP55040)Wifi Driver June 2012 (SP57538) Thank you so much for your help!!

A:Unable to turn on Wifi on HP Pavilion G6-1234sa

Hi: Please post the hardware ID for the wireless card, so I can figure out what driver you need for it. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and there should be a device listed as a Network Controller found under an Other Devices category. Click on the Network Controller device, and then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list and it will be set on Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

Hi,2 weeks ago I updated my windows 10 (anniversary update) and after few days the wifi button does not tun on wifi but instead turning on and off airoplan mode and stays red (does not show wihte light). I tried various methods, tried updating wifi driver in device manager, uninstall the driver and then reinstalled, restarted the system, checked the bios settings to default, vistided various blogs, hp site for similar problems, removed battery, visited troubleshooting in control panel, installed old version windows 10, then updated the windows along with the drivers, and thus tried all the availble methods but invain. And there is no driver available on HP site for windows 10. Please suggest me some way to start the wifi working.

Hello, I have been having a problem with my hp pavilion dv6000. I wanted to clean out the fan, so I took apart the whole thing. It was open and I was still able to turn it on. After having it off for a night, it wouldn't turn on! What happens when I press the power button with only the power cable plugged in, is that the fan spins for a second, a few of the LEDs turn on, and then it turns off for a second. Then it turns off, then on. Just a side note, when the power cable is plugged in, the blue LED at the power dock stays on.

A:Hp Pavilion running Windows 7 will not turn on after disassembling

Hi there Filip12345,

Dissassemble your laptop once more and this time, check to make sure there's no loose connections. Re-seat the ram and hard-drive. Also, try turning on the computer with only the AC adapter plugged in...disconnect the laptop battery. Hope everything works out well for you and let me know how it goes.

Hi, recently bought a second hand pavilion dm 1, everything working fine - is running on windows 10. Recently moved flat (now living in Paris, laptop bought in England although I don't think this would affect my problem though I am completely computer illiterate).Trying to get on to the wifi network in the new flat and the computer just says no wifi networks found. I've tried everything simple like turning the wifi on and off both on the computer and at the box, my phone connects just fine so I know there's no issue with the actual wifi.Have tried to find a solution on here but none seem to be for windows 10, and I'm not sure what to do.Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

The laptop is only 2 weeks old, purchased with Windows 8.1 and upgraded to Windows 10.  Wifi was working perfectly until 24 hours ago when it kept losing connection and went from 0 to 1 bar.  Other wifi devices had normal signal strength.  I tried again today, even comparing with a near identical laptop which is on a fresh install of Windows 10 and could show more wifi services than my own one with both placed side by side within a few metres of the router. I googled around and tried setting the power plan setting to max performance on battery.  It made no difference.  There was no difference on battery power or plugged in.  I tried HP Support Assistance to restore the driver which was V17 before and still V17 after.   I then tried HP Support Assistant and Windows Update to find any updates.  There were none.  I then came to the support pages for the device and saw updates dated 4th October 2015.  Puzzled why HP Support Assistant hadn't found them, I used the hp support pages to check for updates.  This downloaded a new version of HP Support Assistant and this successfully downloaded a number of updates, include Wireless driver updates (v18).   I still only have 1 bar most of the time though it goes up and down a lot, peaking at 3 on battery power.  I have reset the power plan settings to default and there is no difference.  Still other devices around me have more signal strength than this.&n...

A:Wifi Issue windows 8.1 hp pavilion 15-n203tx

Hello Ramz_N, Welcome to the HP Forums! I hope you enjoy your experience! I understand the computer is unable to connect to wireless networks consistently. It is a shame since wireless technology is amazing. On that note, I will do what I can to assist you! Before you do anything, I'm going to suggest you try a System Restore. This can return the computer to a point in time (restore point) before the issue appeared. Although, it may return the computer to Windows 8, which isn't a bad thing. For more information on how to do this, please look at this Microsoft website: Using Microsoft System Restore (Windows 8) Try using the computer in Windows 8 and see if it works properly. If it does, you can choose whether or not you want to re-upgrade to Windows 8.1. I believe this will resolve the issue, but please respond with your results. Thanks for choosing the HP Forums. Have a great day! Mario

Since I installed Windows 10 a few days ago, I haven't used my wifi, but now I find I can't turn it on. At the time of installation the f12 (wifi) key on my HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook was in the off position. Now it won't respond, and I can't turn wifi on any other way. The greyed-out box in the lower right hand corner won't respond (though the airplane mode will). When I'm in Settings: Network & Internet, the slider keeps going back to off. Can't turn it on under Network and Internet: Network Connections, and have already tried disabling and enabling the Wireless Network Connection. Under Manage Wi-Fi settings is some stuff about Wi-Fi Sense, which I'm not interested in -- hope this is not a ploy to make me use it!
Any ideas, aside from resetting the computer? Thanks!!!

A:Now that I've installed Windows 10, why can't I turn on my wifi?

There is more than one way to do this but all require that you are using a certified Windows 7 driver which installs the Msoft Virtual WiFi adaptor which is used to set up the hosted wireless network.

The real problem with this is that if you already have a wireless connection then why would you need to create an Ad Hoc network in the first place?

I guess if you were somehow limited to a single connection it might come in handy, or if you needed to amplify the signal. You can't share through an Ethernet connection, it only works wireless to wireless.

You can set this up using the command prompt or you can install the connectify software which makes it easier for some. The links below explains the details about setting this up, take your pick, the last one is a download for a virtual router if that's what you wanted.

I have a HP pavilion dv6 laptop with a Intel(R) centrino(R) wireless 1030. After I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7 it worked fine until after a few times of restart (after update). All of a sudden the wireless would not turn on. If i hit the wireless key, all it does is turn airplane mode on and off. When I go into the "Network and Internet" under settings, the switch that would turn wifi on would imediately turn flip off. I also noticed that the wifi Intel centino is "not connected". My Ethernet still works, but wifi does not. I have updated the drivers, and went into command prompt to enter in"reg delete HKCR\CLSID\{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va /f" but it said "error: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value."and "netcfg -v -u dni_dne"which showed"trying to uninstall dni_dne ...... dni_dne is not installed....done." how do i fix thix problem?

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Hi all Following a recent hard drive failure, I did a clean install of Windows 10 Enterprise (the ideapad originally came with a Windows 7 OEM licence). The wifi device, 'Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter' is present in the device manager and is reported as working. In the 'Network & Internet' settings dialog, if I turn wifi on, it is immediately turned off again. fn-F5 does nothing (the Lenovo Wireless Settings dialog is not displayed).  Perhaps I need to (re-)install this somehow? The WLAN Auto Config service is running (automatic). Cisco AnyConnect is not installed; I am actually trying to install it over wifi by connecting to my company's VPN server (which is not accessible using a wired connection) so that I can Activate Windows 10. Any ideas on how I can turn wifi on? TIA :-)

A:Z380 Ideapad: Unable to turn wifi on after Windows...

fn-F6 has stopped working now too :-( so I cannot turn off the touchpad which is pretty annoying when your job requires a lot of typing. I have no idea why. I tried uninstalling the wifi adapter driver and installing the one from Lenovo's website, but I still cannot turn wifi on and fn-F5 still does not bring up the Wifi Settings dialog. Perhaps my laptop model just isn't supported under Windows 10?

I took my grandparent's dv7 apart to replace the fan that had stoped working. This morning when I went to put it back together, it would not power on. The night before I had powered it on several times just by plugging in the 6 pin dc power cable that runs from the power input to the mother board in; the keyboard, the hard drive, the wireless chip, the LCD monitor, usb drive, and power button into the moterboard and it worked. I repeated this several times with and without the battery and wireless chip. Then, today, I screwed the mother board into the case and reattached everything properly exept the CD drive, and it wouldn't power on. The only light that seems to respond is the one next to the power input stays a solid white whenever the laptop is plugged in. That is it!

A:HP pavilion 23 all in one won't turn on

Hello harley, For your security, remove the Serial Number from your post. Go to Options and choose Edit from the dropdown menu. That is an All in One type of computer. Not much you can do with those.Check the power cord. Plug it into a different outlet, NOT a power strip to see if you get power.IF no power, it could be several things hardware related internally.It has an external power supply (DC converter block on the cord) and it could be faulty. You can also take a look at the HP trouble shooting guide. If the computer is still under warranty, you will need to contact HP Support for your area.Contact HP -USA Phone Assist | HP® Official SiteContact HP Worldwide | HP® Official Site

I recently opened my HP Pavilion G7 laptop in hopes of cleaning the cooling fan.  I removed the hard drive, RAM, wireless internet card, and battery.  I then could not remove the keyboard so I stopped and put everything back together.  Ever since I did that the laptop won't turn on at all.  I don't get an error message.  The light on the power button does not even light up.  Based on a post I saw here, I tried removing the hard drive, RAM, and battery again, and plugged the laptop into the wall.  Still nothing.  It seems like either I have a major problem or something related to the power button is not functioning.  Any ideas?

Hey gang, So I'm pulling my hair out trying to fix this.  I have an HP Pavilion laptop that absolutely refuses to connect via wifi.  Microsoft Network Troubleshooting says to enable the wireless connectivity and brings up the Network and Internet Center.  The Wi-Fi button is off and cannot be enabled--when I do, it simply stays on OFF. I went through HP's online Support Assistant and performed all of the troubleshooting steps--and I mean ALL OF THEM.  Still no joy.  This includes uninstalling and reinstalling the adapter, updating the driver, resetting the BIOS to defaults...everything.  It still gives me the finger. Can one of you amazingly good-looking and stunningly well-educated folks give me any hints?  This is maddening! -terry-

Have a pavilion 15t, not even 1 year old, turned it off yesterday night won't start back up. Have tried to hard reboot. No caps lock flashing lights but power light is orange with battery plugged in adapter plugged in, blue/white without battery plugged in with adapter plugged in only. Start button doesn't cause fans to turn on or anything.

Hi, Considering this sounds like a hardware issue and the fact that the notebook is less than a year old, my best advice would be to contact HP and arrange to have the notebook repaired under warranty. If you live in the US, contact HP Here. If you are in another part of the world, start Here. Regards, DP-K

Well it stated when my screen wouldn't open with out popping off my keyboard and top panel. The left side thing that normally makes it so the screen can move is jammed for some reason but that's not the main thing right now. While trying to repair it (which I have yet to figure out) the cord that comes out of the screen and goes under the on button popped out of spot. I put it back but my computer is no longer Turing on so I need help figuring out how to make it turn on!

I have a new Pavilion all-in-one. Product No N4051AA#ABG, Model No 23-q105a. About a week ago it emitted a couple of strange 'beeps' which stopped on turning it on & off and PC seemed to work fine. Now it won't power up. The screen remains black. Have gone through your on-line tips n tricks. The light on the power adapter is on and the small light at the back of the computer where it plugs in is also on. However when we press the 'on' button at the front NOTHING happens. The small light in the bottom r corner does NOT light up, and there is NO sound. We have tried to reset the computer by following the instructions & co but to no effect. We can't even get to the BIOS and PROS ?? thingy phase. Does this mean we might have a hardware problem??? Please help! The only other thing i can think of is that we did leave it attached to our printer after we turned it off and then on again. I read somewhere that sometimes this can cause problems as the computer thinks it has to boot up the printer as well??? But have done this before and there were no problems........ Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (the sound of a mum trying to work at home screaming in frustration). Thanks in advance for people's help.JennyM

Bought this computer 5 months ago and was great!  Last week, it told me that it hadn't started properly, so needed to fix something. I restarted and then it got stuck in a continual boot precess. It eventually told me that if I removed everything and started from scratch, it would work again. I did that and, success! That lasted a week, then I got the same message about needing to restart. I restarted, it crashed and now won't turn on at all. The only sign of life is one light on the side.  Help!

My desktop computer won't turn on. It was running fine this morning, shut down normally. About 8 hours later I went to turn it on, but nothing.

The green light on the back is on. (I don't know what that means, honestly, I'm very much a layperson with this.) I switched out the power cord, but it didn't help. The surge protector it's plugged into is fine and shows no signs of a recent surge causing a problem, but just in case I plugged the computer directly into the wall, no result.

I was recently posting over in the Security forums for some trojan issues, but they were resolved several days ago. I don't think this is a virus issue at all. The computer is 3 1/2 years old.

If you have any suggestions, I would be very grateful!

Hello,
My grandmother recently dropped off her HP Pavilion DV7-4073nr Laptop because it would not turn on. I'm not saying it doesn't boot, I'm saying it simply just would not turn on, not even to the BIOS screen. (No, I'm not an idiot, I plugged in the thing.) When I press the power button, I just hear the fans spinning, and it abruptly turns off. I've tried this several times already and it just would not power on. I suspect this is a power supply issue. I don't think it has anything to do with the hard drive, as it doesn't even have time to access it before the darn thing just shuts off. Please help.

Thanks in advance!

Try first to clear the power circuits. Do this, exactly as told:Remove the battery and disconnect charger
Now press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds
Wait 15 minutes
Connect the charger
Try to boot
If laptop boots now, shut it down, insert the battery and try again

My Pavilion G7 1260us will not power on.  When the AC adapter is plugged in and the power button is pushed, a light flashes 3 times around where the AC plugs into the PC.  If the battery is removed (while AC is still plugged in)  pushing the power button results in no light flashes, or any response at all. Problem origin:  PC was running normaly until display brightness began to fluctuate.  (This is because of the power options settings, and the fact that the PC was alternating between being charged/not charged).  The brightness fluctuation lasted about 5-10 seconds.  Then it permanently stopped charging.   (Jostling the power cord and plug had no effect).   The PC continued to run normally for about 30 minutes until it ran out of battery life.  Upon pressing the power button to try to turn the PC back on,  this is when I noticed the 3 flashes of light around the plug in. I am looking for help where to begin troubleshooting.  I have tried the basic procedures of changing outlets, hard resetting (removing battery), reseating the RAM, and also putting the RAM into a different slot.  None had any effect.  I have read that my problem is most likely due to faulty power jack or adapter, defective RAM, or motherboard failure.  I have disassembled the laptop and after visual inspection nothing looks unordinary. I have removed the power jack plug-in from the motherboard and would like to test it ...

Hello, I have the HP Pavillion DV7. I loved this laptop. A few months ago it started shutting completely off while I was working on it.  All of a sudden, it turned off and will not come back on at all. I have had it plugged in and there are no lights that come on or anything. I use this for my crafting business I have on the side, and with the features and screen size, it works great for my crafting needs, and I don't want to spend the money to buy a new one. I know it is not a new laptop, but as I said it was great for what I needed. Does anyone know what may have caused this and if it would be an easy fix, if at all possible to fix? And, I bought it around 2010, so as I said, not new.  Thanks in advance!

"- the green power LED is off until you unplug the power cord and plug it back in- the green power LED stays on until the power button the the front of the computer is pressed, and then it immediately shuts off and nothing happens- the green power LED will not come back on right away if the power cord is unplugged and plugged back in immediately.  If I wait a few minutes and try again it will do the same thing as before: light up, then go off when the power button is pressed." Unless this is a magic computer that accepts keyboard commands without the power on, then no, that's not going to work. Everything dies a fraction of a second after I hit the power button.

Hi there,

I have been back from college for some time now and have been using my desktop computer rather than my laptop for things lately. I pulled out my laptop today and tried to start it. When I pressed the power button, the 'computer on' light came on for a few seconds then it just flashed on and off at about one second intervals. Now, I've repaired computers and a laptop or two before and it seems like it could be one of these three things:
1) The processor has died.
2) The BIOS chip has become unusable.
3) The motherboard itself could've died.

I'm fairly certain that number one on the list has occurred. I have pulled the stick of RAM out and reseated it to no avail. I have even tried booting it up without the memory and it did the exact same thing. The power light comes on steady for a few seconds then begins blinking. There is no noise (no fans, hd, etc) when being powered up either (all off of A/C adapter).

If anybody knows if I'm right or not, please post a reply before I start tearing this laptop apart to see if I can replace the processor. Thanks in advance.

I am very new to building a gaming pc and was looking for some insite. I was looking at getting a NVidia GTX 750 ti and upgrading to a gold rated power supply probably 600w. My utimate goal is to run games like GTA 5, Fallout 4, The Divison, So on so forth on HIgh or Very High Graphics. Your help would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

A:Turn HP Pavilion to gaming computer

@ATSweatt?, welcome to the forum. The best way to determine which video cards will do what you need is, run a search for each game that you want to play for system requirements.  This will tell you the Minimum Requirements and the Recommended Requirements.  For instance, Fallout 4 shows Minimum - GeForce GTX 550Ti and Recommended - GeForce GTX 780.  Since you want to play the games at high or very high settings, the Recommended Requirements would be what you need.  I like EVGA products.  Their Tech Support (1-888-881-3842) is very good.  I suggest contacting them to determine which is the best card for your system and needs.  They are the experts on their products. The power supply unit (PSU) is much easier.  Any standard ATX PSU will work.  I suggest measuring the existing PSU and comparing them to the one that you choose.  For either of the video cards above, a 600W PSU would be fine.  You should add at least 100W above what the video card needs to run properly.  This will give you extra power for peak times.  I like Corsair products.  A modular PSU is very good for smaller cases.  This allows you to use only the cables that are absolutely necessary. Now, I have given you a lot of information to consider.  I would like you to find the video card and PSU that you want.  Then, come back and we will discuss your choices.  This is the way...

I have an HP pavilion laptop (not really sure what kind though) and it keeps shutting down out of nowhere even when the batter is fully charged. This is the second time this has happened to me. Last time this happened was last week and a few days later after it shut down it turned on again without any adjustments or recalibrations. It is currently not turning on and I have tried holding down the power button down for a minute without the battery or charger intact and it still wont turn on. However, when I plug in the charger and click the power button the power will turn on for a split second then shut down right away again. Also when I plug in the charger, there is a blinking led light right next to the charger port, but Im not sure what that indicates.

Eventually got it to work by holding down the power key. Now it's intermittent: sometimes works fine, sometimes takes repeated attempts, sometimes I have to hold it down and get the CMOS message. Any ideas how to fix this?

First I would like to ask does the light show up right beside where you charge it(orange when charging white when done charging)? So if we can see if its just a simple problem with your cable, and if it doesnt show a light tell me if the charger works on other laptops.

When I try to turn my laptop on, the power button lights up, the fans run for a second, and then ceases. The power light stays on, and a light on the capslock key turns on and off repeatadly. The screen does not turn on at all. I would normally try a hard reset, but it does not have a removable battery. I have tried holding the power button for 15 seconds, but that doesn't do anything different. My laptop isn't included in this list, http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01684768 so I am not sure how else to do a hard reset. Help please! Many thanks

I have had no luck finding a hard reset guide for your model. If you are still in warranty I would give HP Support a call.If you live in the US/CA, contact HP info Here. If you live in another part of the world, start here>>Contact HP

Hello, my laptop HP Pavilion 15-g002nc suddenly won't turn on after a year and a half of working perfectly. I have tried hard reset, it didn't help. When I press the power button, the LED lights (wifi indicator as well as power indicator on the side) come on for 5 seconds, then turn off. No flashing though, they just stay on for 5 seconds. Other than this, it doesn't show any signs of life, no sound or vibration. Is there something I can do to fix it?

My computer just won't turn on anymore. I tried almost everything on the forums about how to turn it back on. But it still won't turn on. So I took it to a local computer repair shop, they said my mother board is damaged. But they didn't look at the mother board, they just tested out the power cord and see if it gives off the right amount of amps. They said it does. So I'm lost and don't know what to do, this is my first computer and I use it for just about everything. If anyone has a tip or two that would be helpful.

my hp pavilion laptop doesn't turn on. i took it to some local technician and after some observation they suggested that it is the motherboard that had failed. the laptop itself keeps showing the light on the power button, the light on the ac adapter, and a light on the caps lock button. what could really be the problem?

Hi, First, try a Hard Reset as follows. Shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold  down the Power button for a full minute.  Re-insert the battery, plug in the AC Adapter and see if the notebook will start. If it still doesn't start, is there a sequence to the 'blinks' that you can match to the table below?  Regards, DP-K?

I have a care pack and the registration number but I can't tell the model number. The lap top will not turn on.  It is plugged in and the white light is on near where the power cord is plugged in.  I have tried a hard reset but it doesn't work.  My computer is two years old!
