I bought HP — 15-ra022ur laptop and installed Win7x64. The problem is with my wireless card.
I need a Win7x64 driver for my Realtek RTL8723DE PCI Wireless card

There is a driver but I think HP has fixed it so even if the driver is installed, the wifi card will not turn on.
The same thing happens with the Intel 3168AC card. Card is installed in the device manager but won't turn on.
Yet, both work fine on W10.
Anyway, here is the driver you need. Hopefully it will work for you...
If it installs the wifi card but you can't turn it on, you will either have to puchase an external USB wifi adapter and continue to use W7, or install W10.

You're very welcome.
If the wifi card shows up under the network adapters device manager category, and it reports working properly, and you can't turn it on by pressing the F12 key, then it is time to move on to W10.
You can see this related discussion regarding all we tried to get the 3168 AC card to work on W7. We got nowhere...

I've just got my rtl8732de to work with W7x64, but you nees to do the pin mod on the card.
Mask off pins 54 and 56 ( turn the card upside down and mask off the two pins on the left side of the connector( looking at the rear end of the card you will see two notches - 3 pins on the first, 2 pins on the second and 7 pins on the last big notch. You need to mask the last two pins to get the card working)).
It took me two days, but the job is done. 🙂
Hope the info helps others.

Glad that mod worked for you. It was posted at this link a month ago...
