I have an Hp-Pavillion dv6604nr with multiple issues. I have installed windows 7(64-bit) and I'm currently on Vista(32-bit). Neither operating systems have made a difference in this senario. My CD-Drive, Wi-fi, and Sound do not work whatsoever. I have replaced both the Cd-Drive and the Wi-fi card with new ones, so I know that isn't the issue. The BIOS shows the Cd-Drive as installed yet the OS Doesn't show it in Device manager under drives. The sound is telling me that there are absolutely no audio devices installed and I know for a fact that it does work and is plugged in correctly. As for the Wi-fi, I can turn the switch on and off and the color stays on orange (Blue means it's on). The OS also shows this device to be missing also.
This is not a new laptop, but I would really like it to work again. I can't really do anything with it considering I can't sell it with all these problems. Please help me guys! Any idea can and will be tested!!! Looking and searching on Google has shown me that many people have had this issue unresolved, I would really like to solve it once and for all.
-Ethernet driver also seems to be weird, it will not connect with a direct cable either.
-The drivers I've tried have not seemed to help at all
