I have tried recovering drivers, programs and OS and the wireless adapter still doesn't work. The HP Wireless Assitant will not even start up when I click on it. I think this may be a software or drvier problem as it worked briefly when XP detected it and then stopped for some reason. The device does not show up in the Device Manager and XP does not seem to detect it.
I have contacted HP and will have it serviced if necessary but I would rather not throw money away if there is a simple solution.
Will I be able to get an external wireless adapter to work even if there is some sort of driver problem?
Thanks in advance for any help or advice, I really lilke this notebook and its a fairly minor problem.
