If you have another PC, download the latest driver for the Realtek Wi-Fi adapter to the PC and copy it to a USB flash drive.
This is the latest driver...
Plug the flash drive into your PC's USB port and run the driver from the USB flash drive or copy it to your notebook's desktop and run it from there.

You're very welcome.
Unfortunately, I have no idea.
I copy HP driver files from my PC to a USB flash drive all the time and never had a problem with doing that.
See if this works...download and install the free 7-Zip file utility.
The first file at the top of the page is for 64 bit.
After you install 7-Zip, right click on the driver file and select 7-Zip from the menu.
Have 7-Zip Extract to: and let it extract the file into its folder name (sp144871).
After the driver folder has been created, see if you can copy it to your USB flash drive as a folder.
Then you can open the folder and click on the install command wrapper file and that should install the driver.
Otherwise, you can manually update the Wi-Fi driver from the Realtek Wi-Fi adapter in the device manager.
To manually install the driver, click on the Realtek wifi adapter in the device manager.
Click on the Driver tab. Click on Update driver.
Select the 'Browse my computer for drivers' option and browse to the driver folder that 7-Zip created.
Make sure that the Include subfolders box is checked and the driver should install.
Then restart the PC.
