I went into the administration/driver manager -- but only video managers appeared.

note:
i did an apt-get update followed by
apt-get upgrade -- to get this box up to date
these updates all look good (it still runs)

do i need to change the WiFi driver? if so, I probably need apt-get commands for it.....

That shows wifi has a hard block, is there a switch or button to enable wifi? If there is and it doesn't work
1 Go into UEFI/BIOS and reset to defaults, boot and see if wifi works, if not
2 Shutdown computer remove battery and power cord, hold power button for 20 seconds, reassemble and boot, if that does fix try

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist hp_wmi" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/hp_wmi.conf
Reboot
