Purchased a brand new dv4-2045dx the very first day it came out. The first thing it did out of the box is pop up with a fatal exception error. I determined that it is the Atheros mini-pci wireless card drivers that are causing the issue (SPS:518436-001). The only solution seems to be to disable the "virtual wi-fi mini port" in device manager.
Even though the machine is sold with Windows 7 on it, HP does not seem to even have drivers for this card on their site. If I go to downloads for this model I only get Broadcom drivers to choose from.
Are there correctly functional drivers available for this card, or alternately is there another mini-pci card that will work in the laptop?
