> Last week when i was using it suddenly the wifi just went away completely.
Some laptops have a key-combination, e.g,. press-and-hold the 'FN' key (at bottom-left) of your keyboard,
and press/release one of the twelve "Fnn" keys, that can enable/disable the WiFi adapter.
Did you accidentally "touch-type" that sequence, instead of "SHIFT" and one of the numeric keys?
Other laptops have a "button" or a "slider" switch to enable/disable the WiFi adapter.

> I bought the laptop one month ago.
It is time for HP to "earn" the money that you paid them for the laptop, by exercising your warranty.
Scroll-down to the bottom-left of this web-page, to see Contact HP immediately above Careers.
Click there to get HP to try to trouble-shoot your computer, over the telephone, or to get authorization to ship the laptop to an authorized HP Service Depot, for repair or replacement.
Or, just take it back to where you bought it -- some stores have a "30-day-refund" policy.

> All I get is that the number cannot be recognised.
In what country are you?
What number did you dial?
Do you need to click the "country selector" just above the "About Us" hyperlink, to switch from "United States" to your country?
More details, please.
