Re: Windows 8 and dv6000

Finally found the solution after 3 weeks. Tried and manupulated all drivers and NIC lan card of my hp laptop dv6 7011tx. UNINSTALL HP Quick Launch which caused the whole lot of problems and do the following - Shut down laptop - Remove power cable & battery - Press power switch for 30 sec - Attach power - Power up laptop without battery - Switch on wifi ---it works - Now switch on the laptop with battery HP quick launch describes itself as " Description This package contains the HP Quick Launch Software, which enables special function keys on supported notebook models to be programmed. For example, the HP Quick Launch Software enables users to press the Fn+ESC keys to view system information. This software works with the supported operating systems. " Note : This is the main problem. I have found after seeing the internal working of this driver. It caused the keys to work in its own described way thus overriding the wifi f12 button functionality to change from orange to white or white to orange. After and when restarting : Put the computer to sleep and wake it up to find wifi on. On normal shutdown and booting: Wifi works perfectly. Note to HP: Please check the working of HP Quick Launch Software. I could find its algorithm and functioning and its made to override the default windows 8 key designed for HP. Give me kudos if it works. Give me kudos if it works. And mark it is a Solution. Thank you all for support and help. Rahul
