    So for the last couple weeks my HP Pavillion dv2000 has been working, but now it won't connect to the internet. I have been trying everything that other forums say to do, but so far none of the diagnostics have worked. Please help me, I'm so frustrated that I might pay $65 to Best Buy to get my computer fixed :(.
