Try this one from HP.
If that doesn't work try the one from Intel.

PCI Driver is not compatible while the Eternet Driver is stating that Realtek Network Controller is not found. Any advice?

Try the realtek ethernet driver directly from realtek...6th one one the list (W7 auto install).
PCI device...it is a matter of finding the right card reader driver...

Hello mike_farhat. I understand you're looking for drivers for your G6.
Unfortunately there are no drivers available specifically for Windows 7 32-bit. However, here is a link to the drivers for Windows 7 64-bit.
Another thing you could try is to install both the HP Software Framework and HP Support Assistant. Then you can run HP Support Assistant and the application will scan your PC and automatically download and install any drivers which are available.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!
