The best way i think is giving him to the service cause you have warranty on it.

your in luck!! I just fixed this exact problem, on the same model notebook this today !!
I am assuming you have Vista 32bit
click this link :
then scroll down to "Driver - Keyboard, Mouse and Input Devices" and click on "HP Quick launch buttons" and download and install it
then restart your notebook and it should be just fine. I know your wondering what the quick launch buttons have to do with it, trust me, it will fix this
situaton of having to hold the button down to connect!!

I want to thank you for your post. The same solution worked on my G70. What really pisses me off is I called HP Tech Support and their answer was to return the laptop to HP for repair as the "button appears to be broken"! Can you believe that? I wonder how much that would have cost me?? That is the second time I have been misled HP Tech Support. The first incident I was charged $60 to be handed over to their support vendor, who pointed me back to HP site to download a driver. I ended up writing a presidential letter of complaint to get my money back. Now this incident. Looks like my next computer is going to be a Dell.
Again, thank you for your post, if anyone has the same problem with their G70, this solution will work on that laptop as well. All the best, Correne

I tried the fix listed below and it worked one time. After trying many many things found on the internet with nothing working. Finally, I tried shutting down the computer while continuously holding down the wireless button as being "on" until it was totally shut down. IT WORKED.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post what worked for you so that others might benefit. I have spent hours trying to figure out why wireless only worked while I held down the wireless button on my Compaq laptop. I followed these steps, and it worked like a charm! God bless you!

My wife's laptop would not logon to wireless, (after 3 years of good service.) Held down wireless button until it turned blue, it took two tries , then selected shut down. Problems solved.
Thanks for sharing!
