I have an HP pavilion quad-core and the buttons are switched from how you think they should be.
IE when I press the F-12 wifi button, it turns the wifi off. When I want to use the "F12" button, I have to press the fn+F12 button.
So try just pressing the button without pressing hte fn and see if that works.

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
