I went to get my Restore CD's realising they were lost during moving a few months back. So I have a useless laptop with no way of fixing.
Well, Right now I am using a linux OS and have installed windows XP, a copy I had from a previous fujitsu laptop. Problem is, windows XP cd and windows Vista cd do not have the correct drivers for the C700EM wireless card, and can not even identify the card.
Where can I obtain these driver's, as I have searched the HP site and Google all over and can not find any hint of the correct drivers. I even tried all the Intel PRO wireless drivers on the site to no avail, on both XP and Vista.
Also the site to obtain recorvery cd's does not have one for my model laptop.
