Running a HP pavilion dv6-6c12nr entertainment PC

 

has worked fine till yday when I tried to start the computer.....

 

It kinda stayed on the windows starting page for 10min, so I restarted the computer....

 

then after the restart, the wireless button stayed orange instead of turning to blue, so I

 

hit the wireless button and it brought up the,"wireless devices on your computer are turned off. To turn on the wireless devices, press the wireless button."

 

Well, then I went to the control panel and brought up the network and it shows no wireless network, just the Lan network...wtf?

 

I went to hp and entered the model number etc, and downloaded the Broadband device, and downloaded the wireless adaptor, then it said it was already on the computer and did I want to overwrite,...I said Yes, but there is no wireless adaptor showing up in the network section of the control panel...

 

 I then went to System restore to restore to a earlier date, I disabeled the antivirus and tried that,,,

 

no luck...kept bring up it was unable to restore to an earlier date....

 

So... that in a nutshell is the issue....

 

thanks
