I can see you are going out of your way to help John as you always do which of course I appreciate more than you can know but the owner will be using this laptop only for music and does not wish to connect to the net to prevent any virus issues so whenever he should need the net he will simply use the wired connection or he can always purchase an adapter so I will leave as-is for that reason. Thanks for the help as always and till next issue, God bless!

This HP Pavillion dv3500 is special regarding powering its radio devices.
I had to change BIOS Battery, after that VISTA would work normally, but WLAN would not work.
Real Time Clock had ben reset to 2001, so set DATE and TIME again

Still no WLAN- only Blutooth would work when WLAN switch lights up "blue"

There are two more thinks to do to get the WLAN adapter powered up:
Install HP WLAN Assistant in addition to the drivers for the adapter - download from HP Support Site


PLUS go to BIOS and load default settings, save and restart.

WLAN works again as befor.
