EliteBook 2530p. Can not turn on WiFi Windows 10

EliteBook 2530p, Windows 10 home

Ive just upgraded the machine above 10 win 10 with the help of this site. Everything works fine except one thing, I can not turn on WiFi.

The orange LED on the touch screen under the screen and the front edge of the machine are both orange and when I try to use the touch screen to turn it on nothing happens.

All other keys work fine so I don't think that's the problem. I don't know another way to activate the WiFi on this machine.

The WiFi card is recognized in Windows 10 Device Manager and I have re-installed the card and made sure the antenna cables are properly connected.

Anyone had similar problems with WiFi / Win 10 works is not on this machine model?

Any help or advice appreciated.



I'm frustrated, trying to get the WiFi works because it is a machine I was in the process of selling and I had no user file to worry about, I decided to clean install Windows 10 and re - install Windows 7.

I did this and load all nessasary drivers but no matter what I did the WiFi refused to turn on. I did several searches and HP Wireless Assistant who got the status of 'Wireless LAN' was OFF but the Start button is grayed out so I couldn't activate it.

While remaining in the wireless Assistant I hit the WiFi button on the touch screen and a message appeared telling me to unplug my Ethernet cable. As soon as it is unplugged the button power on in the Wireless Assistant has become clickable and I was able to turn on the WiFi!

So it seems that if you connect an Ethernet cable to this model of HP, the WiFi system is disabled and the only way for him help is by unplugging the Ethernet cable.

I think I'm going to stick with Win 7 because I'm still not sure that the wireless card is supported under Win 10

    The only other suggestion I can offer would be to try the latest version of the driver for the Intel directly from Intel card and see if it works.

  • HP EliteBook 8560p: can not turn on WiFi: the button is orange, and nothing happens when you press


    I have a problem with my wifi. The button always orange and nothing happens when I press on it: no errors, no message, no reaction at all. This is why I can't use WiFi.

    The laptop is a little new: I use only 2 months.

    1. number and product name

    HP EliteBook 8560p
    НР LQ589AW

    2 operating system installed (if applicable)

    Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

    3. error message (if any)

    No error message

    4. all changes made to your system until the problem occurred

    My windows crashed and I got it from archive created a few days ago. Archive includes all data from hard drives, the system has been restored exactly as it was before the accident. I still don't know if this caused the problem (or if the problem occurred after that): it happened a month ago, and I had no WiFi available at the time and only tried to turn it on a few days ago.

    Additional details:

    In device manager wireless card is appearing as functioning normally. In the management of the adapter Wi - Fi is on but says "no connection available. If I run diagnostic tests, he asks me to activate WIFI with a button on my laptop, which I can't do. In Mobility Center, it says "connection Wi - Fi is turned off". Activate the button is gray and impossible to click on.

    I already tried things:

    1. Reinstalled all the HP drivers from original CD.
    2. Card WiFi removed in the windows Device Manager (remove device), restarted windows, installed new drivers for it, rebooted again;
    3. Checked the mobility Center as suggested in one of the threads available on this forum;
    4. Do a hard reset for HP laptop (battery removed, push the button and hold for a minute).

    Thanks for any help!


    I managed to solve the problem...

    Turns out that the problem was (apparently) caused by HP Power Assistant tool shipped with my laptop. Default profile has been showing the gray bluetooth and WiFi, and it was not possible to turn them on. I created a new profile, and even if all the parameters are identical to the default profile, it allows me to turn the BT and WiFi and turn off without any problems. Button is working fine now as well and goes from blue to orange when I press it. Active WiFi and it works.

    I hope this helps.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Ensure that the BIOS is up to date here and the WiFi pilot is the most recent. He could have used a different wifi card installed during the manufacturing process, you may need to try each by using the most recent driver version. It could be a default WiFi card. If the option to turn on all together it is missing, which usually indicates a faulty WiFi card. Youl could also try reinstalling the wireless card listed on page 52 of this guide.

  • can not turn on the windows, using Security Center?

    recently, I was infected by the virus of fake anti-spyware program called desktop defender 2010. I think I have all that, but is windows Security Center is still saying it is offline and when I try to turn it on, it tells me that it cannot be started. Anyone know what the problem is or how to fix it? Thanks in advance!

    The computer is not completely cleaned up damaged Windows. Make sure that the machine is really clean:


    If the computer really is malware-free, then make sure that the Security Center service is running.
    Start > Search > type: services
    When Services appears in the above results, right-click and choose "Run as Administrator". Provide the password/OK for UAC and Services open up high. Scroll down to the Windows Security Center and it is is not running double-click to launch it.

    If this does not work, you can try to repair the system files with the System File Checker. Start a command prompt in the same way that you did Services exception type: cmd
