I've had my HP 2000-140ca since about June 2011
Today I woke up to find that my harddrive was fried. I knew this was coming as error messages came up lately, and I had backed up important files in advance. While not the reason I'm posting this, I am extremely disappointed in the length of time the harddrive lasted.
Anyway, since I can't afford to be without the laptop for the length of time it would take to send it away to have it "fixed" under warrenty (basically any amount of time at all) I decided to just buy a new hard drive and deal with it myself.
Hard drive replaced, windows 7 64 installed, many drivers downloaded and also installed. The one problem I seem to have now is that for some reason the wireless driver refuses to install. I've downloaded several different versions as there's a few for this model on the site but nothing seems to work. It just won't detect drivers and when I run the downloaded file it seems to install initially but then fails to do anything. I'm at a loss here and am already suffering the loss of a portable computer.

Do you know what wireless adapter it is?
