Flash the latest BIOS to your system, even if you already have it. This fixed an issue I had with not being able to turn my Gobi on.

I have had exactly the problem that you had. However, in my case, it was the hardware failure and I have had it replaced by Waranty.
Before you bring in however, do the followings:
1/ Flash you BIOS to latest firmware
2/ Disable and then, Enable again all Wireless Radio from BIOS setting
3/ Uninstall/Reinstall: Access Connection/Integrated Hotkey Feature/PowerManager/Gobi2000 Driver + BootCode
Remember to use something like RevoUninstaller to remove all residual piece of Registry, files, etc... Then use CCleaner to decrap those again!
At the end, if it does not show up in Device Manager, you can be sure it is hardware failure. I got mine replace just about 1 week ago!
