Having problems with your HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook ?

HP Pavillion zd8000 Wireless Device does not show up or Connect

\015 I have had my laptop for about 4 yrs now with no real problems until it was getting hotter than normal.\015\012I Sent it in to the local PC Repairer/Parts supplier and was told that 1 of the cooling fans was no longer working and a replacement was not able to be sourced. They suggested an under laptop USB Fan cooling tray with 3 additional fans built into it and 4 USB outlets aswell.\015\012$28 bux later no problems.\015\012\015\012My kids use the laptop and i didn't notice it but they were complaining about No net connection, i said yeah yeah and finally tried to get it working.\015\012I had to put a USB netcomm wireless stick into mit to get the net up !!\015\012\015\012Just wondered how to see if it is working as it does not even show up in the system devices anymore.\015\012\015\012I'm not very PC literate so a Laymans wording may have to be adopted for me Sorry in Advance :/\015\012\015\012Cheers 44 44 Bro :)\015

Hi,

\015\012If it's not showing up in device manager it may have been unintentionally uninstalled or the built in wireless card may have failed. In either case the simplest way to test is to go into your Start menu, then All programs, then either PC Help & Tools or System Recovery folder. Inside that folder one of the programs will be for application and driver install. Follow the prompts in that program to re-install drivers, then select the wireless driver from the list it gives you. If the card has just been uninstalled or the driver for it has been corrupted this should remedy the problem.

\015\012If this doesn't work chances are the card is dead and would need replacement. They, like the fans, are tricky to find but you may have luck on eBay. For convenience you can just use the netcomm wireless stick as it is esentially the same but i would recommend installing it in the Nomad port if you model has it(look on the sides for a movable plate, if you look inside the port you will see a USB port at the back of the Nomad Port) this will keep the USB stick inside the shell of the laptop which will reduce the chance that it gets bumped or snagged and damamged when you move the laptop.
