Pavilion g6 no network drivers after new install

HP Recommended
Pavilion g6-1c77nr QEO64UA#ABA
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Pavilion g6 1c77nr I recently downgraded back to windows 7 home premium 64 bit from windows 10 pro 32 bit because My laptop has been constantly freezing after installing a new ssd and ram memory.  It freezes up more than it actually works. It would freeze up for 45 seconds to a minute minute and a half each time and work approx 20-30 seconds before freezing up again. It does not do this with windows 7. I have no experience at all so I don’t know why now my laptop says I have no network drivers. I have tried reinstalling windows 7, tried updating drivers via device manager (haven’t over the internet cause of course I have no network drivers). Tried going into Regedit HKey_local machine \system \current control set \control \network and deleting the config file then restarting whichi gathered from YouTube, but when I do that every time the file comes back, and doesn’t work. I apologize as to my experience in advance.

Hi:

 

The parts list for your notebook indicates that it has a Realtek 8188GN PCIe Half MiniCard (HMC) WiFi adapter.

 

HP PartSurfer

 

You need these wifi and ethernet drivers for your notebook...

 

This package contains the driver installation package for the Realtek RTL8188CE wireless LAN Controller in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

 

sp57049.exe (hp.com)

 

This package provides the Realtek Local Area Network (LAN) Driver that enables the Realtek Network Interface Card (NIC) Chip in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system.

 

sp55040.exe (hp.com)

 

You will need to download the above drivers from another PC, copy them to a USB flash drive.

 

Plug the flash drive into your g6's USB port and run the installation exe files that way.

 

Here is the link to the support page where you can find the rest of the drivers you need after you get connected to the internet.
