Re: Wifi Button not working

Hi @HAFEEZ_30,


Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community! I came across your post and wanted to assist you. I understand you are having issues with the Wifi button does not work. Don't worry we'll work together to find a solution for you.


To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

Did this happen after a recent update?

Have you tried to reinstall the Wifi drivers?


In the meantime, let's try these steps here: 


Do a hard reset of the notebook to see if that gets the card to show up: Click here for instructions


Please try performing a BIOS default on your PC.


To perform BIOS default turn on your PC keep tapping F10 key.


You will boot into BIOS, Go to file tab select defaults from the list.


Press F10 to save changes and exit. 


Check if the wireless button is working now.


If the issue still persists let's try to update the Bios, chipset and Wireless drivers from our HP support website, using this link.

Also, download and install HP support assistant on your PC. It should automatically download and install the latest updates and drivers for your PC.


Refer this link to know how to use HP support assistant.


If the issue persists, recover the original drivers from HP/Recovery manager. 


I hope this helps. Let me know how it goes for further assistance. I'll be more than happy to help.
