Apparently from other forums, dv6000 & dv9000 series of notebooks use AMD chips that overheat., some symptoms are broken hinge, no wifi card recognition, blank screen, and eventually it fials to boot up.
one forum had a reference about a problem with GPU problem, web: fixmygpu(dot)com, I saw some of their youtube videos and they remove some chips, reball (resolder the chip ends to the motherboard).
I will simply buy a mini USB wireless adapter for about $30 and use it until the motherboard (chip) completely dies . I will also remove and store all my data & pics on an external harddrive
