I have an HP dv6000. It wasn't working, so I replaced the motherboard and it booted up perfectly fine with the exception of one thing...the wireless card. Here is the error I am getting: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. When the wireless card is in, it won't boot, it will just display that message. However, when I remove the wireless card it boots up perfectly fine straight into Vista. The wireless card is the stock card that came with the laptop so I am unsure of exactly what might be causing the issue. I had read that updating the BIOS might help, but I am not sure. Any suggestions would be great.

I assume that you replaced the motherboard with the same model. If so a bios update should be a good work around.

Thanks for the tip. I did perform and Bios update and that fixed my issues. The Dv 6000 is notorious for failing motherboard's. Going forward what can I do to protect the Laptop from this happening again. I wasn't the original owner. Thanks
