It's been a while i bought this laptop, Initially there was no problem but suddenly there was no wifi symbol in my taskbar.

I searched for the solution and it was to download wifi driver online with the help of ethernet-rj45.

I tried to search in hp-official site but there was no driver for windows-7-32bit.

I tried more than 100 drivers from other sites, i also installed numerous driver updater but NO, nothing was helpful because as soon as I installed a new wifi-driver, the next time I turned on the computer the driver would be gone leaving only 3 Network drivers (2 blue-tooth and 1 ethernet)

IDs: 

BTH\MS_BTHPAN [bluetooth]

BTH\MS_RFCOMM [bluetooth]

PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_22CF103C&REV_07 [ethernet]

and the WIFI symbol would also be gone leaving me to do nothing but search for the driver again and install it.

When I installed the driver these two (2nd one works fine) would turn up the symbol and let me use wifi:

1. microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter
{5d624f94-8850-40c3-a3fa-a4fd2080baf3}\vwifimp

2. Qualcomm atheros qca9565 802.11b/g/n wifi adapter
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&SUBSYS_217F103C&REV_01
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&SUBSYS_217F103C
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&CC_028000
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&CC_0280

for the 2nd one there was a similar problem asked in this help-desk where the customer found the driver nowhere and he was given a link to install another driver which worked for him but not for me, i guess due to my different laptop...

So, I would be really glad to have my problem solved, I would like my having the wifi symbol 24/7, not having it disappear with its drivers every morning i turn my PC on.

I approached many help desks but none was replied , i guess this one will also not get replied, if it gets please please please please help me ...
