Wireless whitelist dv7 2260 ed

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello, I'm having problems with my wireless module. Therefore I would like to install a new one.


I've heard there is such a thing as a bios whitelist where some modules are supported and some aren't.


Where can I find such a whitelist?

You could purchase the part from HP, use the HP Parts surfer to identify the part: 


And order it via the HP Parts store: 


Or alternatively, Contact HP for setting up an order/service via phone support   


Once a wireless card is whitelisted it cannot be removed from bios and it will not work.
