Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook ?
The wireless card on my laptop broke
\015 The chip is attached to my motherboard and I'm not even sure if its broken, the switch might have just broke, but my question is can i just replace the chip or will it fry my motherboard? how much will it cost to have it fixed?\015
Yes, try first to replace the wireless card. It is very easy to access and you should be able to just pop a new one in. Most times the switch is ok.
The wireless card is a pretty common replacement part, they can be replaced pretty easily. This is from HP, it explains how to rellace the wireless card, it is quite thorough, If you don't think you can do it then better to send it to them,http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/fastFaqLiteDocument?lc=es&dlc=en&cc=py&docname=c00273322
