Sorry guys, I usually leave these forums strictly to Flight Sim talk but I have a problem with my laptop and was wondering if anyone had a clue what might be the problem. I figured since you guys usually have great hardware related answers that I might get some luck from you.
I have a HP DV6000 pavillion laptop. It has a built in wireless network card. For some reason, in the past few weeks, the card does not enable itself when I start my computer. The switch on my computer is switched to enabled but the computer acts like nothing is there. I can slide the bar that enables the wireless from disable to enable all I want but nothing happens. But after I restart my laptop a bunch of times, it decides to enable the card randomly. It is so weird. It randomly enables sometimes like it has a mind of its own. I just bought vista for my laptop so I figured I'd install vista and hopefully my problem would go away. Sure enough the problem still happens after a fresh windows install. It is so frusrating. I hate that I have to restart the laptop like 15 times before the wireless card decides to enable itself. You guys have any clue on what's wrong? Is my wireless card messed up? When the card does enable itself though, it works fine so I am thinking that maybe I have a bad driver. I tried rolling back the driver but no success. If you guys have any clues or tips for me, that would be great.
