Intel WLAN Driver SP74163

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion - 550-259na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Tried to install this driver from within the updates tab in HP Support Assistant.  Installation failed several times. (Error message - installation failed.)   How to achieve a successful installation?

Looks like you're trying to install the wrong driver.

 

Looking at the HP drivers page for your PC running Win10, I do not see that softpaq for any Intel WLAN driver.  Instead, I see the softpaq sp72159.

 

That page is here: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-550-200-Desktop-PC-series/9259612/model/...

 

Good Luck

WAWood,

 

Thanks for that.

 

The SP74163 appeared on my support page under recommended downloads.  Not so recommended after all!

 

Regards
