Hi:

 

If your notebook has the BCM 4313 wireless adapter, see if the W8.1 driver works.  There is no W10 driver for that model wlan card.

 

This package contains the Broadcom Wireless LAN Drivers that are required to enable the integrated Broadcom Wireless LAN Adapter in supported notebooks that are running a supported operating system.

Hi:

 

I would roll back to W7 if I were you.

 

I doubt you will get the wireless to work on W10 if that W8.1 driver didn't work.

 

You can try to reinstall W10, but if it wasn't activated already before the free upgrade deadline expired on July 29th, I don't know if it will activate successfully without a product key.

You're very welcome.

 

Since I am not employed by, nor do I represent HP, I would not be able to explain why HP did not support 4 year old PC's for W10.

 

This is their info regarding upgrading to W10...

This statement in particular...

 

If you purchased your computer prior to August 2013, HP has not tested or developed drivers for your computer model. Some features might not work, or the installation might not be successful.
