Wireless Switch Problem: my wireless light is red and will not turn blue

I need help! 

I have problem with wireless LAN for notebook HP Pavilion dv9005us. The WLAN touch button won't active though I move the button. In a case like that, is it a hardware problem or do I have to update the driver ?

 

Thanks

That could be a hardware problem or a driver issue.

Check the device manager and see if the adapter is listed.

Thanks, I followed your advice,

I run the hard disk test and the result was:

 

Test Status #2 - 07 Fail

 

Does that mean there is no solution?

 

I usually manage to get it going by putting pressure on the left bottom corner of the laptop while starting it. Once the logo appears, I let go and its ok, but it doesn't always work, sometimes I have to repeat the action several times or wait for a while and then try again.
