My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

My SyncMaster 204B Monitor just stopped working. It worked fine this morning before I left for work, but when I arrived home, it wouldn't power up. I've been Duel Screening for about 2 yrs with no problems until now. My other monitor works fine. I've already tried swapping all power and VGA cables with no success. Basically, the lil Blue Power Button Light just flashes dimly. Any idea what it might be?
