    HP Pavilion dv6000 wireless issues

    Hello, I'm relatively new to Ubuntu. I aquired an old HP Pavilion and installed Ubuntu on it. I believe I had 12.04 on it first. The wireless worked for a little bit with a fix I found online, then went out again. I followed a few guides but nothing worked, so I shelved it for a while. Today I updated to 13.10 (14.04 wouldn't work due to what I believe are driver issues). I think perhaps the wireless card broke because in most of the guides, the first thing they do is give a command to identify the wireless card, and for the life of me I cannot get any of them to work. If you could help me get this fixed (if the wireless card is still operational) or just simply confirm that it's broken, it would be an immense help.

    Extra info:
    -The motherboard on it was broken when I got it, so I replaced it. I don't think it's too relevant since the wireless did work for a little while in the beginning, but every bit of information helps
    -The wireless switch has two positions and when functioning, gives an orange light when it's off and a blue light when it's on. The light does not turn blue when the switch is flipped. I never paid much attention when it was working (how easy it is to take such things for granted...) so I don't know if it's supposed to be blue any time the switch is on or just when it's on AND connected.

    Thanks!

    There could be several problems here, both hard- and software. Please begin with running
    Code:
    sudo lshw -sanitize > lshw.txt
    and post lshw.txt in CODE tags.

    Re: HP Pavilion dv6000 wireless issues

    It's powerful enough to run all the Buntus, but of course there could be other kind of hardware problems. From your post it sounds like it could have been dropped or suffered some other kind of injury.

    Let's focus on the wired connection for now. What happens in a fresh install of 14.04?

    Re: HP Pavilion dv6000 wireless issues

    It installs, then will boot to the log-in screen. When you log in, the log-in screen GUI goes away and it just stays on whatever the background was on that screen. You do have control over the mouse, but there's nothing you can do with it. When you use a live CD and select to try 14.04, it gives a black screen and stays there. I made sure to test 13.10 with a live CD and the "try it" option worked so I installed, Interestingly enough, when I went to install 13.10, it said it detected no prior operating system on it, even though 14.04 was on there and could boot but not log in.

    Re: HP Pavilion dv6000 wireless issues

    For Nvidia screen cards it's often a good idea to add the nomodeset boot option or check 'restricted software' during install.

    Your output from lshw is not complete. Please post in full length.

    Re: HP Pavilion dv6000 wireless issues

    How would I add the nomodeset boot option?And that's all I had in the lshw output. I ran it again and got the same result, right down to the character count.

    Re: HP Pavilion dv6000 wireless issues

    The card is not showing up so here are the options.

    1. Check and make sure the card is plugged in or setted properly after changing the mother board.
    2. Reset the bios and see if that fixes it.
    3. Buy an usb adaptor.

    I have one of these laptops and the light should be blue when the card is on, my card went completely out in this model.
