HP Pavillion dv9000 expresscard remote problems. Answered

I have an HP Pavillion dv9339us with the expresscard remote. I've recently reformatted both hard-drives in it (including removing the recovery partition) and now the expresscard remote won't work. I know the remote itself is functioning fine, because i can see the UV led pulse when i point it at my webcam, but no amount of driver installs or websearching can get the computer to respond to it. Everything else on the laptop works fine. Any ideas?

You may want to go to the HP site and see if there's a bios flash update. Also ,if my memory serves me correctly (and sometimes it doesn't) I remember seeing something on the web about DV9000 series laptops having some kind of chipset problem.Because of the problem, HP was extending the warranty 2 years beyond the end of the normal warranty. The easiest way to go is probably call HP tech support.
