pavilion p7-1421 Windows 7 Drivers

Just purchased a HP Pavilion P7-1421.  My employer requires Windows 7 Pro.  I'm having serious trouble finding Windows 7  drivers, specifically Ethernet drivers.  I did find a 64 bit Atheros Network Controller driver supposedly for Windows 7 64bit butI get an error message stating that the driver is not compatible with my AR81 hardware.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here are the specs for your HP Pavilion p7-1421 Desktop Computer. Windows 7 drivers for this model can be found as follows;

 

AMD Chipset Drivers

AMD Catalyst Display Driver

Qualcomm Atheros Customer Portal (select "AR816X Family Drivers", "WIN AR816X Windows WHQL Driver", you will need to extract/decompress the .RAR file with WinRAR or the like)

Ralink RT2860/RT2760/RT2890/RT2790/RT306X/RT309X/RT35X2/RT539X Driver

 

Please see HP forum thread entitled "Downgraded to Windows 7, need help with specific drivers" for more information. The model referenced in this thread uses the same exact motherboard as yours. Post back with "Hardware IDs" if you need more assistance.

 

Please send KUDOs

Re: pavilion p7-1421 Windows 7 Drivers

Your info was right on - Thank you! I just wonder why HP would not have this info in the Drivers download section of the support web site.
