Driver Hell is a real thing. So let's go over the post W7 install work. I'll use:
1. Head to HP.com and get to the page of drivers for W7 and your model.
2. You'll need the motherboard chipset package.
3. After that I would install the audio, ME, HOTKEY SUPPORT, then the WiFi driver.
I can NOT tell you exactly which WiFi driver as HP used a few models.
On my HP 6560b there's a WiFi on/off button just above the 10 key pad's Insert button too.
Hi Guys, I have a copy of 7 Pro and it installed ok. Did act a bit strange during the installation but I got it up and running. No connectivity which I chased down in Device Manager as complete absence of Network Adapter. I was able to use a data transfer device and see the adapter from the old HHD but it will not transfer in by USB so I'm stumped. I have Spectrum WiFi at my home but all I get right now on this Laptop is what appears to be "do you want to dial again?" Huh? Is this the 1990's?
