Wireless connection disappeared

  1. My wireless connection has disappeared >.<
    It won't show the adapter in Network Connections and the device doesn't even show up when i look under the device managers tab in system.

    I am running a HP Pavilion 6000 series Laptop with Windows XP Home on it.

    Additional Info: I had left the computer on while I went to work. When i came back and tried to connect i found it had entered some kinda of hibernation or standby(even though I don't use Hibernation) and then I couldn't connect :mad:
    I have it plugged in with no battery inserted.

    first, reboot the system

    now use your Wireless Network Wizard and recreate the connection to your router.

    report back with all errors (or success :) )

    Standard troubleshooting procedure :p It's all been tried.. did some research and found that HP actually issued an extended warranty service on that problem and more for both the dv6000 and dv9000 series laptops. Already contacted them and I'm sending it back soon. Thanks for the effort tho...

    I would give you guys the link but I can't because it will not let me post it... ah well.:confused:
