I got myself a pavillion G6-2208Ca, which came preloaded with Win 8. This OS was really bothering me and did get on my nerves. So ...I wiped it clean and put in Win 7 64bit. But ... now I do not have drivers for most of my hardware. Hp does give bluetooth drivers and bios update.. but thats all. I have tried in vain to get Ethernet/wireless drivers.
...and some how I have now got the display drivers, thankfully....
but still need my network adapter drivers and for a couple of 'Unknown devices' also!!!
Can anyone help??? please.. really stuck up here..thanks in advance.

I also really missing drivers for Windows 7
In any case I'll be happy to help you,
go to Device Manager and any unkown device do the right click on it -> properties -> go to Details tab -> choose Hardware ID.
Copy the same hardware ID here and I'll be happy to give you the appropriate drivers.
That way you do about all the unidentified adapter

Thank you so much for giving methe links. Most of them have worked and I am now able to connect wirelessly. But the issue with the network adapter continues, ie for the ethernet. I have tried out many drivers, did run an auto diagnose of HP, it identified that the drivers need to updated and send me to the page with drivers for win8 . ...no use there, then tried the one by microsoft, again it showed driver issues but had no soultions to offer.
I am getting the Code 10 error ( This device cannot start.) shown for it. ITs the Realtek PCIe FE family controller.
I am adding the hardware ID below:
is there any way you can help me with This????
And thanks a whole lot for getting me the links man....
