Hard Drive crash-reinstalled XP results in No wireless or sound

\015 Hard Drive crash-reinstall XP. No wireless or sound device. Installed all drivers/apps from the Dell CD that came with the laptop. Still not there. Tells me no sound device installed. As if wireless is totally absense. What the heck? How do I 'turn on' wireless? Where would I look for sound device?\015

Answers :

Does your device manager show that you have a wireless network card? If so, you turn it on and off usint the Fn + F2 buttons together. If you need the driver, go here to choose which one you have, and download it.

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.
