Hi all

Have a problem with a HP Pavilion G6-1325ea just over a year old and just out of warranty (of course). The wireless has suddenly died and all traces of the wireless card have disappeared in windows as if the hardware doesn't exist. Checked that it is definitely not an OS problem and ruled out the wireless mini pci card which is working in another laptop. No bent pins or dirty sockets etc. Upon investigating the mini pci slot you can hear a little tone changing pitch. I have run through the area and checked all the caps they are reading a correct voltage not sure what else to look for. I have repaired some bad caps in the past but I definitely would brand myself as an amateur so not sure what else to check. Would appreciate any ideas you guys may have?

Many Thanks
