Hi:

 

Go to the device manager and under network adapters, see if your wireless card is listed.

 

If it not, then yes, more than likely, the motherboard communication/connection to the mini PCIe slot that the wireless card is plugged into is shot.

 

Yes, that was a symptom of a failed motherboard, along with video.

 

Yes, there was a recall, but the window to file a claim for motherboard repair/replacement has been closed for some time now.

Hi:

 

I know it is not the solution you are looking for, but if you want to keep using the notebook, I would get a cheap USB external wireless adapter for it.

 

I would not spend any money on repairing the notebook. 

 

The repair entails replacing the entire motherboard and why replace it with another one that may go bad too?

 

Nope, either get an external USB wireless adapter, or buy a new or refurbished notebook.

If the card is not present in the device manager or the BIOS, and you have the HP wireless assistant software installed, that is correct.

 

The connection to the internal wireless card has been severed and the only solution other than replacing the motherboard would be to purchase an inexpensive external usb wireless card.

 

Sooo, that does kinda suck, don't it.

You're very welcome.

 

The dv6000/dv9000 model series were plagued by this issue and other motherboard issues, such as the video and audio going out.

 

The heat generated by the video chip breaks down the motherboard.
