My HP G60-530US laptop worked fine for both Windows and Ubuntu 10.04 until one day when the Wi-Fi was disabled by the hardware.
For some reason, Ubuntu has stopped enabling the Wi-Fi in response to the button for that, which wouldn't be so bad if I could just reboot into Windows, enable the Wi-Fi, and switch back. Sadly, the Wi-Fi disables itself when I turn on the computer or resume it from standby, which combines with my lack of control in Ubuntu to produce the undesirable result of having to use Windows or connect through Ethernet.
Is this a correctable BIOS problem from HP, an uncorrectable BIOS problem from HP, or just an Ubuntu problem?
If I can fix it, then how do I fix it?
