Uninstalled and reinstalled twice, no help, still no wireless adapter in device mgr.  Is there a setting that has to be turned on in the bios?

HP Recommended

Is the notebook  still in warranty?

Ahh. I don't think the update did that.

 

BIOS is firmware, not software.

 

It is at a different layer in the 7 layer OSI model than the operating system.
