You have a few options in my opinion please try these steps can help you solve your problem.

(1) unplug the battery adaptor & then press on & press and hold the power button for laptop for 30 seconds then switch on and check if the wireless led lights.

(2) go to Device Manager then uninstall the drivers wireless network card and restart the device and check if the light is on.

(3) try to do a system restore to the date where unit was working fine.

(4) Please update the Bios driver & wireless from the HP website.

(5) click on start search type Recovery Manager, and then click on it once select Yes on user access control, and then select I need immediate help and then select driver and select request recovery driver wireless and install it and then restart the device.

(6) If you are comfortable with reinstalling the wireless card that will be on the rear panel of your device you can try this steps as well.

If you still have the same question so you must call HP tech support and get the replacement of the part.

    Check if the wireless network adapter using the Draft N standard.
    You can choose this in Device Manager-> properties-> Advanced tab WLan card

    As far as I know that the WLan card is Intel 5100AGN.
    Check if an update of the WLan driver would also help

  • Problem with update of Intel for Intel (R) Wifi Link 5100 AGN driver


    I have Windows Vista, Office 2007, and when I download the update recommended above makes my Internet become very reliable. Some Web pages is not affected, but some will not work. There is no obvious reason why this is the case for all advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much



    You tell us where you found the recommended update.


    FYI for Windows updates:

    Microsoft gives sometimes you updates for the 3rd party hardware: graphics, network cards, etc.

    You should only get the latest drivers for them to real hardware manufacturer's website, as Microsoft normally does nor those have the most recent drivers available as Microsoft relies of the 3rd party hardware Manufactuer to provide.

    But unfortunately, the only way to know which is the update of the problem is to install them one by one, until you find the 'wrong' for your installation.

    You can do a system restore to get back until it has been installed (which is NOT the best way to remove an update) or follow this method:

    'Remove an update'

    When you have found the issue of update of the list of updates which is presented > then right click on the update problem > select Hide update > and it will not be available to you once again

    Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them - if you select this option, you'll be alerted when there are new updates available for download and install. You can then choose to download and install the updates that you want.

  • problem of Intel(r) Wifi Link 5100 AGN WiFi modem

I went to Device Manager and not the diagnosis, and he says: I use the highest driver so far and that the modem is working properly.

  • HP ProBook s 4710: Bluetooth missing on HP ProBook 4710 s (Windows 7 64-bit) - Intel WiFi - Link 5100 AGN


    I have a strange problem:

    I have two HP ProBook s 4710 here in front of me. The two "seems" to have the same hardware inside (I don't see any difference on the stickers in the back).

    I have install both of them with the same USB with Windows 7N 64-bit.

    After the installation is complete (no additional driver installed).

    the first bluetooth ProBook has

    the second bluetooth ProBook has NO!

    I checked the BIOS, every two active a bluetooth settings on both.

    WLAN works on both.

    On the first s I can also install the bluetooth drivers latest, on the second, I can't. Always the message occurred ("no device was detected. Make sure that... »).

    Device Manager indicates, the two ProBooks Intel WiFi - Link 5100 AGN, the first s also Bluetooth-device listed, the second of not.

    What the hell is going on here?


    It is very strange because the HP Wireless Assistant software is registered directly on the support page and driver 4710 under the solutions section.

    If this is the case, try the latest HP Connection Manager software which does the same thing the software assistant wireless.

    Here's the theory behind your dilemma (except radio BT died).

    This laptop once had the connection manager (since the software assistant Wireless does not) installed, and you can use this software to individually disable bluetooth or devices rather than using the wireless button wireless.

    I guess that for example, turn off the stereo bluetooth with the connection manager to save a small amount of battery power, which increases the time before having to recharge the battery.  But you can still use the wireless.

    The hardware button turns both off the coast.

    The big problem is...

    If none of these devices are turned off by the wireless assistant or the connection manager software and that you reinstall the operating system or to update or other, wireless or bluetooth devices do not appear in the Manager of devices as if they are dead or don't exist.

    And what makes this more puzzled, is that if you check the BIOS, you will see that they are present and active!

    The only way to make them work again, is to turn them on by using the Deputy Director or the wireless connection software.

    This is why it is absolutely essential to ensure that these devices have been turned on before you reinstall the operating system.

    For those people that upgrading to W10, none of these programs work on W10, so if the BT has been disabled, the user must return to W7, activate the bluetooth, uninstall the connection manager or the wireless assistant software, reboot, ensure that the device is always on and then upgrade to W10.

    Here is the link to the software of the support page for your laptop connection manager...


    If this doesn't work or the other, I suspect that the BT module does not work (all hardware failures).

  • Alternative to wireless Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN card?

    I find that my Intel 5100 AGN wireless network card does not work as well as he used to.  I tried everything... even the drivers are perfectly up-to-date.  But I keep losing the connection to my wireless router, even if the strength of connection between 3 and 4 bars.  I find that I rarely make me fall if I have 5 bars.  But if it drops to 3, I get periodically fall any wireless network that I use.

    I want to replace this card by something better, but of course compatible with the HP dv5 (my specific model is dv5t-1000).  Any recommendations?

    "If you keep an open mind, life will give you more opportunities."

    Hi, Gary:

    What I meant by my statement about you have the best of the cards available for your laptop is that, Yes, I'm sure that the Intel 5300 is an improvement on the 5100, but the problem is that you can not install the 5300 in your notebook.

    The Intel 5300 is not supported (only the numbers of cards/coins listed in the service manual can be installed) and your laptop wouldn't start until you have removed the card.

    You can try another card in the manual, if you wish.

    However, you are limited to the:

    4322 Broadcom 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN module

    Broadcom BCM4312 802. 11 b / module g WLAN (not a N Wireless card)

    I guess you can use an external USB adapter, but I would like to get one with an external antenna connected to him, because I would have to believe that installing wire of 3 antenna in your address must provide superior reception on a simple USB wireless adapter with an internal antenna as its single antenna.

    The antennas go all the way to the top of your screen.

    Tinker you with advanced network adapter settings?  They can be found by clicking on the card in the Device Manager, click the Advanced tab.  Take note of where the parameters are now so if something is buggy, you can change their return.

    Here is a guide to the advanced settings that you have and the recommended settings for them.


  • Cannot start the unit because the authorization service is not running - cannot start service

    I'm weirded out. When I try to start the unit on my VM, I get the following message:

    So, after a little checking, I realize that indeed, the authorization Service is not running on my host. I am trying to launch and get the following message (translated from the french, sorry):

    Windows cannot start the VMWare authorization on your local server. For more information, see Event Viewer. If this isn't a Microsoft service, contact your service provider indicating the service specific error code: 6000002.

    Tracking Add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc." /v loglevel /f /t REG_DWORD /d 0 x 3

    and repeat once more for authd thereafter;

    Do you mean that the external CD/DVD drive for PC card cannot be recognized in Windows XP?
    Hmm I think I have an idea.
    I think you should go to the Device Manager and remove the * Texas Instruments PCI controller card bus * and * Toshiba ToPIC100 CardBus controller *.
    Reboot the laptop.

    After restarting, the operating system must install new hardware (two controllers carbs) and after this installation, you can try to connect the external PC card, CD/DVD drives again!
