Problems caused after I replaced my hard drive for laptop

HP Pavilion ab154ca
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Hi, so I am using 14 inch HP pavilion ab154ca.
Since last week, my hard drive started not working so I purchased a new hard drive(it was second handed) at just random electronic store.
I plugged this new hard drive to my laptop.
However, my laptop's manufacturer became Asus, maybe because its secondhanded.
Also, my laptop keeps saying No Wifi networks found..
I tried everything on device manager by updating driver, downloading HP wireless Lan software but there is no progress at all...
I even tried to format this laptop but there isnt even such thing as Restore to Factory setting.
I've picked erasing all option but still after format, the manufacturer keeps appearing as Asus..
Can please anyone help me with these issues?
Thank you..!

Hi so could you specifically tell me which software programs should I download?
As I said, I've already downloaded HP wireless lan program on this website.
Also, I want my laptop to be "HP factory setting".
But my laptop doesnt have that option on "restore setting". Maybe because manufacturer is Asus?
Please I need a help. Thank you.

*my laptop is HP ab154ca.
