pavilion slimline s5-1554
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a Pavilion Slimline s5-1554. About 3 months ago my motherboard crashed, and I ordered and replaced it with a new one. (same make , model and all). I only upgraded 2 things in it. I maxed out the ram to 16 gb ddr3 timetec mem and I installed a bluetooth wifi card instead of the original plain wifi. It has been throwing the error code 31 and saying it can not install the driver for the card. Am I or did I do something wrong? Please help

Hi:

 

In order for that wifi card to work properly, there must be two antenna cables attached to it.

 

With one antenna cable, the reception will be very poor, or the card may not even work at all.

 

Here is the link to the latest W10 driver HP has for that model wifi card...

 

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