I was using Win-7 & 64-bit Home Premium on my HP-Pavilion DV6-6030ST (LL048EA). All functions were working fine. I upgraded OS to Win8.1 Embeded Industry Pro & 64-bit. After that, F12 botton stopped working for Wi-Fi On/off switch. But it works fine for Bluetooth On/Off switch and its colour works fine (white/red). My Wifi Card is Ralink-RT5390 and I havent got any problem for connecting wireless, I turn it on from right side control panel, but this buttun is more pratical to switch. Have you any advice for this? Thank you repliers, its my first topic here.

Did you install the wireless button driver for W8?

Before this driver i tried SP63555 but it could not solve the problem. A minute ago I run the driver that you gave me (SP59835) but when installing it an error occured on "InstallDriver_64, C:\..\WirelessButtonDriver.inf /installdrv" than finished installing. After that I have set it to compatibility mode (as win 7) and started as admin, but nothing has changed. Also i restart the pc but still the same.

Unfortunately its looking hopeless. ll048ea is not tested for Win 8 (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/ad/windows-8/instructions.html) I update my Ralink Wireless Driver with SP58374, but did not solve. But, Can i find a bios update for Win 8? The topic that you linked shows, I need an update for bios. Sorry for my English.

You're very welcome.
Your english is just fine.
If there is no BIOS update for W8 on your notebook's support and driver page, then you will not be able to update the BIOS.
I would agree with your position that the situation is grim.
Do a search on the forum by the keywords Wireless Button Driver Windows 8 and you can look through those to find anything which might be of help.
On the left side of the search results page check the Solved box and that will narrow down the search to posts with a solution.
