Hi all, my wife has an HP laptop, HP Pavillion dv 2000. Hope im in the right place?
She needs it badly by Wednesday for travel/work.
So she was optimizing and trying fix it all up nice and I think she updated it to XP service pack 3. which I had told her not to do.
Now there seems to be something missing in the wireless internet network software. The available networks are not showing up and it wont connect up to the internet via wireless. It will connect up via Ethernet cable. Even seems like the software that shows the available wireless networks is not installed anymore.
I have tried many "fix" avenues, from HP and from device manager.
I am wondering if the problem is in the Bios?
We have purchased windows 7, and we could install it now, but if this problem is in the bios, I dont know if installing a new system software would even fix it?
How can I tell if it is the bios?
I am lost, so any advice is appreciated.
