Probook 6570b
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Windows says: cannot find network hardware. This happened after  reinstalling windows 7. The pc has been on the internet up untill now. It seems that the network driver has disappeared.

It has a HP Ne tServer 10/100TX PCI LAN- network card. Obvoiusly I cannot find nor download a driver as the PC is not on the internet.

If the wifi adapter needs a driver, there will be a device in the device manager labeled as a Network Controller.


Please post the hardware ID for the network controller device, and I will post the link to the wifi driver you need.


Use this guide to find that information.
