Having problems with your Microsoft HP Pavilion DV6276US Notebook PC ?

The wireless switch on my HP pavillion dv7-1130us is stuck (in off position). How do I "unstick" it? I've tried almost everything.


Answers :

1.If the switch slider is stuck from sliding by the laptop's case somehow, you open the laptop, and free it. Then see what transpired making this happen.

2.Upon opening the laptop, and finding that the switch itself is broken, (Mechanism inside the switch has broken), you remove the switch by unsoldering it, and then replace it.

3.You take it to a qualified computer repair shop, and have them do it.
My money is on the switch mechanism has broken inside the switch, and needs replacing.

My wlan switch stuck in the off position. if you pry off the cheap plastic switch,you will find 2 tiny prongs.1 of mine had broken. it was easy,and much simpler than any of the above ideas,to use a pin to move the switch to the on position. i just leave it there. if you really want to turn it off, click on the wlan icon and turn it off with the software link. its crazy to take the case apart for this
