Ubuntu 12.04 wireless not working hp

However, short after the wireless network stopped to work and I haven't got to get it working. We ran out of time and it will be two weeks before my friend can get in again.
Hi, Im new to Linux myself and have had lots of problems trying to get an internal wireless card or wireless usb adapter to work in my HP Compaq laptop. Has anyone managed to solve this issue. Initially I thought there was no driver, Tried to reinstall all the drivers from the hp website in windows. A headless install worked fine with Wifi connection. It worked earlier after rebooting a few times but then they stopped doing that either.
I own a HP wireless keyboard mouse which use the same USB dongle to connect to the PC. Sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-wireless-lucid-generic sudo reboot. The command went smoothly enough but the wireless did not activate. I got a list after put this com. But only a few percentage of the users use a headless install.
