wirelss button won't turn on

The button just stays orange no matter how many times I click it.I have a Hp 2000-416Dx and right now all I can use is the ethernet.Itis really frustrating, considering I just bought this laptop a month ago.Just 2 hours ago it was working perfectly fine and suddenly it wouldn't work.

Re: wirelss button won't turn on

Hi

 

You have a couple of options as I see it please try these steps might help you to fix your issue.

 

1) Disconnect the Battery & Adapter then press & hold the power button on Notebook for 30 seconds then turn on the unit and check if the Wireless light turns on.

 

2) Go to Device manager then uninstall the wireless drivers and restart the unit and check if the light turns on.

 

3) Please update the Bios & Wireless driver from HP website.

 

4) If you are comfortable reseating the wireless card which will be on the back panel off your unit you could try this steps as well.

 

 

Let us know how it goes!

Re: wirelss button won't turn on

Problem:

I struggled with the same problem for 2 years with my hp6530: the wireless kept getting deactivated after startup (and somehow I managed time and again to get it working again, without knowing how).

 

Solution:

the wireless button is NOT an F key; it is the actual little light "|"which is orange when deactivated. You should not touch any F key; you should touch the light which is ABOVE the F key.

 

Comment:

Now I could write a lot more about programming trolls who develop a system which 1. ignores usual user behaviour, thereby also ignoring an issue which, judging by the sheer number of help requests on the internet, causes much grief; 2. attribute a function to a button which is easily touched unintentionally and 3. completetely fail to advise users of their weird solution....

Re: wirelss button won't turn on

Unfortunately this is not the problem and the BLUE light that Goes Orange when turned off cannot be turn on (F12Key on the 3132TX)
