Are you connected to internet via wireless on this Notebook ?

 

You need to press either F12/ FN + F12 to turn ON/OFF the wireless on the Notebook. if the keys are not functioning install HP Quick Launch Software from here

Have you tried downloading and installing the most recent version of the BIOS for your notebook?

 

Here is a link to the most recent version available: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-113123-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en...

I had the same problem - the WiFi Driver update dated 25/09/12 caused the problem in my case.

Right click on 'Computer' select 'Advanced' and open Device manager. Locate the WiFi Adapter and choose the 'Roll back driver option' to restore the previous driver - worked for me.
