Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Just reinstalled Windows 7 on my old Pavillion desktop to use as a Plex server and cannot get an internet connection because the devices are missing the drivers. Is it possible to download the drivers on a different computer and port them to the HP on a flash drive?

HP has a driver download/install feature, but I cannot connect to download them from the machine that needs them.

My other machine is running Linux, and HP won't download the drivers to it without trying to install them as well.

Hi:

 

it appears that HP has retired support for your PC since it is more than 10 years old.

 

This reputable 3rd party website has the drivers you need for your PC.

 

HP Pavilion p7-1235 drivers (driverscollection.com)

 

Since Internet Explorer has been retired, I recommend you install Microsoft Edge so that websites work properly on W7.

 

Download Microsoft Edge
