This worked for me on the HP6000 Pavillion.

1:Turn off the computer and disconect from the mains.

2:Turn the computer over and unscrew the L-shaped conpartment.

3: Locate the Broadcom wireless card and unscrew the 2 retaining screws, the card presents itself to you once you have done this.

4:Disconect the card by pulling it out of the slot.

5:Turn on the computer, let it boot up then turn it off.

6: Reconnect the wirless card and replace compartment cover.

7: Turn the computer on. Windows detects new hardware and installs it. If at first it does'nt pick up the wireless network just re-boot the computer

Solution for HP dv6000 wireless problem. Fix it yourself.
Hi...
I am from Costa Rica and my hp dv6000 had a wireless problem just like everybody.
Because I am in Costa Rica, the HP FEDEX service for repair, does not apply for me.

This is the solution that worked for me.
Difficulty: easy for skilled people, medium for inexperienced people.
It is not risky but be common-sense careful.
1- Unplug the Power cable and take off the battery.
2- Unscrew the memory cover. It is the one placed in the middle (2 screws).
3- You will see the memory, the bios backup battery and the wireless card (the one that has 2 cables plugged: one white and the other black, those are the wireless antenna).
4- Carefully unplug the backup battery. Small coin-like battery with a white plug.
5- Carefully unscrew the wireless card and remove it from the card slot.
6- Unplug the antenna cables.
7- Wait 5 minutes.
8- Plug the power cable and turn on the computer. Then wait for the screen to ask you something and choose the F1 option by pressing it.
9- Wait for windows to load and shut down the computer. Unplug the power cable.
10- Now plug back the battery and the wireless card. No need to explain how.
11- Put covers back and screw, of course.
12- Turn on your computer and verify the wireless switch is on the on position, otherwise turn it on when Windows is already loaded. The blue light should be on. If not, go to Control Panel, Device manager and check that your wireless adaptor is present and drivers are properly installed.
13- Your wireless must be alive and functioning.
14- If wireless not present, then it did not work, if it is present but have some problems, reinstall wireless card drivers and do what it should be done when updating drivers. That is a different problem.

That’s it. However if you want to know some important details, read the following.

-I tested my HP dv6000 wireless card on an Acer pc that is compatible with the wireless card.
-I try to test back the HP dv6000 pc using the Acer PC wireless card and the HP system said WIRELESS CARD NO COMPATIBLE CHANGE IT.
-The only one way to reset BIOS is by unplugging the backup (BIOS) battery as explained above.
-People generally try to fix it by recovering the original pre installed system, but it would fail must of the times.
-It is possible that the Wireless adaptor is defective; in that case none of the steps above will work.

Hope it worked for you...

I found the issue...well, there is a known issue. There was an article posted lower in this page about an HP Limited Warranty Service Enhancement for the United Kingdom and a few of their HP Pavilion models. Well I found the page for the U.S. and it is here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/...

I reloaded WLAN drivers, then flashed the BIOS with the latest and greatest from here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/...

This did not fix the problem.

I called the number listed on the first page (first link above) and they had me pop out the battery and then plug in the power and boot up, then entered the BIOS to set it back to default settings, then booted up and logged in to check the Device Manager to see if I could see the wireless card (broadcom), which of course it did not have it listed. Turns out it is a motherboard issue...knew it was hardware. They then processed the mail-in package. It should arrive in 1-2 days, and then I call the carrier that has been prepaid for this shipment, and they say it should take 7-9 days to do the repair once received. So hopefully in a couple weeks I'll have this back and working.

I do need to back up all my data as they end up wiping and restoring it back to its default after the new mobo install.

Hope this helps anyone else having this issue.

HP INDEED sucks. I got a Compaq Presario DV6000 3 years ago, workked fine for a few months then started having all the problems mentioned. I've had a mac for about two years now to replace it because it KEPT breaking. I sent my compaq back THREE times and guess what...its not working again. Its not even worth sending it back again. Thank god i have my mac now, never had a single problem. Talk about bang for your buck ,its just great. This problem with all these HP laptops is EXACTLY the same as the problem with Microsofts xbox (If you didnt know, the xbox 360 is RENOWNED for getting the red ring, and i mean every single one of them. Microsoft has been fixing peoples xboxs for free ever since because it is such a huge problem....Exactly whats happening with HP.) Can ANYONE do ANYTHING right anymore?? Apparently Apple can....

I just fixed this problem. I called HP and they told me I was just over the warrenty, and I'd have to pay to send it in. I asked them if it costs more then $30 to send in to fix, and the HP rep laughed at me...

This same thing happened to me on a hinge that they recalled, I was 3 days over the warrenty, and they wouldn't fix it - they told me it was going to cost $350!!!!

So, I've decided to NOT buy any more HP's, unless their used and cheap... There nice machines, but they don't stand behind their product issues...So, I'll tell you what I did to fix it, and this is what I told them(HP) as well, they weren't lauging anymore - and said it would work... So, I'm posting this to help you avoid getting ripped off by HP service, and having your laptop out of commission for 3 weeks...

Anyway, all you have to do is go to Wal-Mart / Best Buy, etc, and get a "USB" wireless network adapter. The only problem on your laptop is the internal wireless, but it doesn't mean a USB or Express card adapter won't work...

HP doesn't want you to know that, because I asked why they didn't mention it if they knew it worked... to help customers easily fix their problem.... and their answer was "Well, people just want to send them in and get them fixed" - yeah right, unless they knew they could save $300 bucks by not replacing the motherboard!!!!

Good Luck!!!! I'm off to surfin on my working wireless HPos...

i have the hpdv6000. i went on hp site downloaded the updates for the drivers. then i did vista updates only the firs set after a initial recovery. the network card worked fine. after the second set of updates it stooped working. i did a recover to the first set and it worked again. it has to be a software proble not hardware. HP is bs. This isnt the firt time they let me down but it will be the last.

I have a DV6000. My wireless stoped working several months ago. I recently got an update from HP saying that I may qualify for a free repair because there has been a recall on all DV6000 types. My wireless internet does not work no matter what drivers I update it with. I called HP, and thats when they told me I qualified for a free repair because the model had a defective motherboard. Eventually your wireless adaptors stop working. I did not want to fight with adding on extra peices to my laptop when it should work properly no matter where I go. I called. We trouble shooted several different ways, then they finally said they would send me a shipping label to fix it. It does not matter if your warranty is expired, if you have a DV6000, you may qualify for a free repair-wich is a new motherboard. There has been a recall on this type of computer. I am shocked more effort has not been put in to alert the customers about this. Hope this helps. Next time, I am buying a MAC. You have no idea how many issues I have had with windows operating systems that required me to start my pc over from scratch. It is becomming annoying, and quit costly. I would rather fork out the extra money and forfiet all the other problems that come with these kinds of laptops!

EVERYONE!!!!

IF YOU WANT TO FIX YOUR DV6000 WIRELESS ISSUE FOLLOW THESE STEPS POSTED BY: akuojo

I WAS HAVING THE SAME ISSUE FOR ABOUT SIX MONTHS NOW AND HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING TO GET IT FIXED. NOTHING HAS WORKED UNTILL I TRIED THESE INSTRUCTIONS POSTED BY akuojo.

MY WIRLESS CAME BACK ON AND HAS BEEN WORKING FOR 6 DAYS NOW!!!!! I HAVE EVEN DOWNLOADED A 8.60GIG FILE SINCE IT CAME BACK ON.
I HAVE INSTALLED WINDOWS UPDATES, SHUT DOWN AND RESTARTED SEVERAL TIMES AND THE WIRLESS HAS COME BACK ON FLAWLESSLY EVERY TIME!!

akuojo,
I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU DID TO FIGURE THIS OUT BUT BIG THANKS TO YOU MY FRIEND!!!!

The only thing I have to this tech wise is: My computer did not restart on its own after flashing the BIOS, had to do it myself. Not a big deal, possible different computers will react differently after using WINFLASH.
Bottom line.... follow the directions to the "T" and be very patient!!!!!!!!!! Also I left my wireless switch in the on possition, durring this.

Good luck!

Your laptop is having a problem common with a lot of laptops that are using the Nvidia chipset. Some experience loss of video when the Nvidia chip overheats and "pops up" off the board enough to lose contact. In your case, the problem is the Nvidia chipset itself. Nvidia specified the wrong temp of solder to be used on these parts, softer than it should have been, thus they get hot, as is actually normal but sonce the solder is too soft, it lets go. As I said, the Nvidia chip itself has come loose. You can see this chip if you remove the bottom cover, it's naked, no heatsink. Says Nvidia. It has lost the path to the Mini-PCI slot so the wireless card indicator will never go BLUE and will not work. If covered under the HPO service enhancement (Search google for HP service enhancement) they will fix it for free. If not, you're own your own. I have repaired MANY of these by reflowing the board and have emailed the instructions out to many as well and they (all but one) repaired it themselves. If interested, drop me an message and I can email you how to fix it. r o b e r t . w e s t a t j u s t - m i c r o d o t c o m

Odds are the drivers won't help you. Do a little more research. Just google hp dv6000 wireless and you'll see a bunch of explanations why your card isn't working. It happened to me as well. Apparently 1 in 7 of this type of computer have wireless issues and the problem is the motherboard, which needs replacing. If the drivers don't work for you, and you're not still under warranty, I suggest just buying a USB wireless adapter to fix your issue. That's what I did and it's working fine now.

BTW-expect more issues... This computer is not the best...

Hi, Help!! My HP6000 starting acting weird last night by saying that I don't have a wireless network set up ( I do and the other PCs work fine in the house), then in the night it was saying that I needed to install some updates ( I am an excelllent RN not software/hardware person so unsure as to what updates it said) but I clicked on it then it said updates were unsuccussfull then today, it will not even turn on: Well you can hear it trying to boot up and some lights are on but the screen is black and the monitor appears to be not working at all. Any thoughts on any of these above ramblings? Any help would be appreciated! ( uniit is approx 14 months old).

I had the same problem with my computer... What happend was during a storm my power stip broke for my sound and for my power on my laptop... I pulled the keyboard out and pulled the strips out the one on the left is the power and the one on the right is the sound and other stuff.. I pulled them both out cause they were broke and started messing with it since i thought my comp was shot anyways and decided to take a razor blade and run it over the power hub and my comp started up.. I was pretty excited cause I couldnt get it to start up but then my screen was black and it wouldnt boot up.. It sounded like to computer was booting up and then restarting over and over again.. So eventuallly I turned it on by running the razor blade on the first hub(on the left) and as soon as it turned on i ran it on the other hub(the one on the right) and it booted right up. So from personal expirence if your power button works then that power strip is fine but most likely the one on the right is shot and its causeing the computer not to boot up.

I am in the same position as big j. I sent the laptop to HP a while back while it was still under the extended warranty, and they fixed the wireless problem. Now the problem seems to have returned. Is it time for a new laptop? Or is there a fix? A new laptop really isn't in the budget right now, but we need the internet access. Thanks for any help you can give.

I also have a HP dv6000. 2 days before the warranty expired, my laptop would come on, lights all there, could hear the hummm but the screen was black. I also had a fine white line across the screen (when it did work). I called them and mailed the computer back. They replaced the motherboard which brought the computer and screen back to life. Then I mailed it back AGAIN to have the screen replaced so that little white line would go away. After about a week my wireless "blue" light is orange and won't change. I'm going to try some of the fixes I've read on here, hopefully I can repair it myself since my warranty is now gone. If not, I will plug in a wireless device and keep going until the whole thing self destructs! I like the laptop but after reading everything in these posts, I'm convinced that we all made a bad decision to purchase this particular laptop.
Rasek- Apr 14, 2010 11:42AM
Mine just started to have the same problem the only way I got it to start up was to unplug the power adapter and with the laptop OFF I hold the power button in, while I'm holding it in the laptop turns on then off, I then release the power button and just press it normally and it starts up. Worked for me so maybe It might work for you.

My DV6000 same thing. bought it just over 2 years ago. HP online tech told me that my warranty has ended and that he could help me if I pay $69 for 1 year teach support. I told him I am not paying them $ to get told info I have already found on internet, that this computer is garbage. He took another 20 min come back and admit that this series of computer has this common problem, only way to fix it is to pay $300 to replace the mother board. get this, they are so SURE that this repair will solve the problem that they will give me 90 DAYS extended warranty. Go figure.

I have tried everything people have suggested, but none work. I think I am going to take your advice, get a wireless device ($50 a pop), and I really would like to see this thing self destruct. Piece of garbage, never again will I buy an HP.
