Searching for Driver Software

Product Name: Pavilion p7-1436s
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi!  I just changed my isp to ATT uverse and it came with a new modem and all that jazz, but ever since then i have been getting blue screens in relation to my Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2x2 Wi-Fi Adapter's drivers while running online updates.  I have been looking for a place to download the compatable driver software so i can delete what i have and replace it (even if it is the same driver version) just to correct what i believe is a corrupted file.

 

the file i am getting the error for is bcmwl63a.sys

the stop code i got with it was SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

 

my adapter:  Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2x2 Wi-Fi Adapter

Driver Date:  1/26/2016
Driver Version: 7.35.344.0

 

when i go to update the driver i am told that i have the most up to date version available, so i am really looking for a copy of what i already have.  If there is a repair tool available that would be even better!

 

when i let hp scan my computer for available drivers i am only given  the option to choose from windows 8 or 8.1, no option for windows 10 is given.

Re: Searching for Driver Software

Hi:

 

There is a slightly newer version out there...

 

7.35.344.10 Rev.A (2 Jun 2016)

 

This package provides the Broadcom Wireless LAN drivers for supported models running a supported operating system. Broadcom Wireless LAN drivers are required to enable the integrated Broadcom Wireless LAN adapter.

Re: Searching for Driver Software

Hello !

 

My Wi-FI adapter is Broadcom BCM43142 and I get BSOD when I'm downloading torrents.

 

I tried to download the "NEW" updated version of the driver... but your link doesn't work ?

 

Is there a new driver or not ? I can't find it anywhere

Hi, @Elisha2 :

 

It appears that HP removed that driver for some reason.

 

This is now the latest one for W10...

 

7.35.344.0 Rev.A

Hi:

 

I read your post, and unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to help you with that issue.

 

Here is the revision history of all the W10 Broadcom drivers for that model wlan card.

 

Maybe one of them will work...the very first one...you would have to use 7.35.275.2 Rev.B (27 Jul 2015).

 

The other one (7.35.290.0 Rev.A(27 Jul 2015)) is only for the dual band broadcom cards.

You're very welcome.

 

Yes, those are only W10 drivers, and every revision HP made to them.

 

I still wonder what happened to the newer one that they deleted, and why?

 

I even checked the newest desktop PC's that use the same card, and even those are at 7.35.344.0 Rev.A.

 

So there is definitely nothing newer out there from HP at this time.
