Hello @praveen99,

 

Welcome back to the HP Forums!

 

I understand the WiFi is no longer working on your HP Pavilion 15-e015tx. I want to help you resolve this issue.

 

Please start with a hard reset. After that, perform the steps in this wireless troubleshooting document:

 

HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 😎

 

You can also try rolling back the drivers.

 

1. Press the Win + R keys

2. Type "devmgmt.msc" and then click "OK"

3. Click on the "view" tab, then "show hidden devices"

4. Scroll down and select the "Network adapters" option

5. Right-click on the RT3290 Wi-Fi adapter, then select "Properties"

6. Pick the "Driver" tab

7. Click on "Roll Back Driver"

 

Thank you, I look forward to the results!

Hello @praveen99,

 

Thank you for the reply!

 

The hard reset will not erase any data unless it is not saved, be sure to save your work before performing a hard reset.

 

Once that is done, continue on with the rest of the troubleshooting steps.

 

Let me know how it goes!

Hello @praveen99,

 

Thank you for getting back to me,

 

I see you have completed a factory reset, and have taken it to an authorized HP Service Center. I'm not sure what they would have completed, but what were the results of the document I posted initially?

I look forward to your reply!
