Hi everyone;
I just registered to this forum with hope someone can help me with the current problem I am facing.

I just installed windows vista on my HP Pavilion dv6-1330et laptop and I can't find any suitable drivers. My laptop specifications are;
Microprocessor  -  2.2 Ghz Intel Core2 Duo Processor T6600
Microprocessor Cache  -  Level 2 cache 2 MB
Memory - 3072 MB
Memory Max - Supports up to 8 GB DDR3 memory
Video Graphics - ATI Radeon HD 4650 Graphics
Video Memory - Up to 2303 MB total graphics memory with 1 GB dedicated DDR3
Display - 15.6” Diagonal High Definition HP LED Brightview Display (1366 x 768)
Hard Drive - 320 GB (7200 rpm)
Multimedia Drive - Lightscribe Super Multi DVD Writer (+/-R +/-RW) with Double Layer support
Network Card - Integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN
Wireless Connectivity - Intel 802.11 b/g
Most important drivers I need are Wireless and Graphics. I couldn't find any that would work on vista.
Can you please provide me with a solution or links please? Would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I've tried the HP website although the drivers they provide are only for Windows 7.

The wireless drivers wouldn't work and that is one of the most important things I need. I checked many driver websites, Intel's drivers, broadcom's drivers, etc. but couldn't find one to work. I also tried Windows to solve it but that wouldn't work either. Windows automatically downloaded Broadcom 802.11 b/g drivers and on the device manager the the device driver it says;

"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)" Even though it was Windows itself downloaded it.

I installed windows Vista because I couldn't get to install Win7. During the installation I would get error saying a file could not be found or missing, even though the installation should go smoothly in normal circumstances because I have used the same CD to install win7 before. I tried it with another CD but I still get the same error. Any ideas what it could be and any solutions?
