HP Mini 110 Missing Network Adapter Driver's

Hi i have an HP Mini 110 and i recently reformatted it using a windows 7 USB flash drive. 

 

But after the reformat i realized that i couldn't connect to the internet using LAN or Wireless.

I Do not have any network adapter's showing under network connections

and when i go into my device manager there are no working drivers for any of my devices listed uner 'network adapter's'

 

So i'm guessing i just need the driver's? But i've downloaded like 15 different hp network adapter's and none of them seem to be fixing it, i'm not 100% i've downloaded the right ones, but i've downloaded alot of them to no avail

 

Anyone have any idea's why windows installed and my network adapter's didn't or how i can go about fixing this so i can get internet back on my HP Mini?

Re: HP Mini 110 Missing Network Adapter Driver's

  • Unknown devices would be listed as such and marked out with a yellow question mark.

find device drivers

  • Select the unknown device and right click to access Properties.
  • In the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id or Hardware ID from the drop down.

device drivers downloads

  • An alphanumeric string like this PCI\VEN_1217&DEV_7130&SUBSYS_012F1025&REV_01\4&6B16D5B&0&33F0 is the identification marker for the device. Please provide that so that we can help you with the right driver.

Re: HP Mini 110 Missing Network Adapter Driver's

Hi:

 

What is the full model number of your mini-110?

 

Do you see any devices in the device manager labeled ethernet controller or network controller with a little yellow ! mark?

 

If so, those are the two network devices, and they need the drivers installed.

 

To find the right drivers, please click on each one of these items in the device manager.

 

Then click on the details tab. In the Properties drop down list, select the second item (Hardware ID's).

 

Post the top string of characters you see in the window.

 

Those will identify the models of the network adapters and I can send you the links to the drivers.

Re: HP Mini 110 Missing Network Adapter Driver's

Well unfortunately i cannot tell you the string of character's anymore

 

I tried to search for the driver's and i installed the wrong one's, which changed it from 'network adapter ' to the name of the incorrect driver', and then when i went to uninstall the driver, it just disappeared off my device manager.

 

It was listed under 'Other Devices' with the little yellow " ! ", there were actually 2 like network adapter and network conntroller or something i'm not 100% but network related ones, and i'm also missing driver's for PCI Device and Video Controller

Please provide the hardware ID eventhough they are listed in other devices. This hardware ID will help us search the right driver for your system.

Re: HP Mini 110 Missing Network Adapter Driver's

hi,

 

I see also in my computer > device manager an unknown "network controller" device with yellow icon. these are the details I can see for it:

 

PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_145C103C&REV_01
PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&SUBSYS_145C103C
PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&CC_028000
PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&CC_0280

 

I guess it's also about the wireless card? I'm not sure, but can you guys help me with the right driver for my device?

 

thanks a lot
