Resolve Windows 10 related issues for your HP computers or printers by HP Windows 10 Support Center
I am in a pickle. I recently reinstalled win 7 from win 10 and lost some drivers.
I used the hp downloads for most drivers but I cannot seem to get the WIFI adapter. I have no option but to use my Ethernet Cable to get online.
Any help would be great!. I downloaded the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller using this info:
But no WIFI option.
Please help! Thanks
What is the hardware ID for the Network Controller?
That would be the wifi adapter that needs the driver.
Thanks for your swift reply.
There is no wireless adapter device listed. Nor is there a bluetooth device (in device manager)
You're very welcome, Gavin.
If there isn't a device labeled as a network controller under an Other devices category in the device manager, the wifi card is most likely no good.
Try removing and reseating the adapter. Sometimes the contacts get oxidized, which breaks the electrical connection.
Remove the battery and A/C connection when working inside the PC.
Leave the antenna cables connected to the card to facilitate an easier reinstallation.
Below is the link to the service manual. The HP support site is not working, so I had to get it from a 3rd party website.
