Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02642701.pdf

 

Supported wireless cards are listed in chapter 3 starting on page 24.

 

From the looks of it, you have a choice of the Atheros AR9280 802.11a/b/g/n 2x2 WiFi Adapter, or the

Broadcom 4322 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN adapter.

 

You must only get one of the cards listed in the service manual and they MUST have the HP part # on them, or they WILL NOT work in your notebook.

 

Make sure you choose a card with the part # listed for your locale.

 

Paul
