That unit is so new that it's a warranty issue. Things like this do happen!
My internal Broadcom a/b/g wireless card on my HP Pavilion dv6000z has recently disappeared. It doesn't even show up in the device manager window. The internal bluetooth on my system continues to work. I have tried installing the appropriate drivers and flashing the BIOS, but to no avail. At this point I'm suspecting a hardware failure, but does anyone have any other suggestions as to what could be causing this? Specs below:
Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
2 gb ram
AMD Turion TL-64
