Internet connection problem On pavilion laptop

HP Recommended
Pavilion G7
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit)

I would appreciate any and all help! My HP laptop is about eight years old with windows eight. It was working fine and suddenly froze while I was on a conference call. Where the lines used to be for Internet connection, it now shows a picture of a square with a plug and states not connected. No connections are available. When I click on the icon it only shows broadband connection and doesn’t give any other Wi-Fi offers.

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

Are you able to go online with an Ethernet connection?

 

If Yes, I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/p...

 

HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook

 

  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also ensure Windows is up to date.

 

Select the Start  button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available

 

Keep me posted how it goes

 

Thank you and have a wonderful day 😊
