I have an HP Elitebook 2730P. I have what I have been told is a hardware problem. For about 4 weeks I would periodically lose the internet. If I went to "diagnose and repair" it would tell me my wireless capability needs switching on, and the problem was easily solved. Now, however, it has ceased to work entirely. Internet and everything else works perfectly well so long as I do not access it wirelessly, but with a hard link.
On the side (switch number 19 on the online spec) the wireless switch just moves back and forth uselessly. It is very frustrating because I suspect it has merely come unhooked from whatever spring it is attached to, so will no longer switch on the wireless capability.
It is fine for me to delve around inside because my company have already given me a new machine and are not interested in the return of my old one, which I shall give to my kids or eventually donate to a local charity. I cannot figure out how to access the "inside" of the switch as it is not accessible by simply removing the back. It seems to be inside the main shaped plastic casing.
Can anyone advise me as to how this can be fixed? I am happy to have a shot myself, or if it is likely to be cost effective to repair commercially I'd happy to pay for it.
Thanks for your help.
