Wireless not working on Pavilion dv7 - Laptop shuts off after 7 seconds

HP Recommended
Pavilion dv7

Greetings. 

Well I sold my HP Pavilion dv9000 and dv2000 to try and get parts for my Pavilion dv7. I recently finally got the parts I need, but when I put it in the laptop, it powers on for about 7 seconds then turns off, tries to turn on again but turns off and then gets stuck in a loop. On further inspection I saw the hard drive light was amber. I tried looking online but I don't know what dv7 this board came out of. I tried putting a hard drive in and it won't spin up any hard drive I try.

 

Is this some kind of power problem or is the board the problem?

Thanks

Hello. Scratch my other post, I got the system working after replacing the processor. I'm having difficulty getting the wireless card to work. The one I put in the laptop had no drivers so I replaced it with the one that was in the laptop before I gutted it, only to find that the wireless card is unsupported in this computer and that I had to remove it. I've been searching the web and trying different drivers for this wireless card and I can't find any.

 

Any ideas?
thanks.
