Has the wireless connection ever worked since you installed Windows 7?
Apparently HP do not provide Windows 7 drivers for your model of notebook, see http://h10025.www1.h...cname=c01892673

Couple of things to check, is the wireless switch fully in the on position and the switch appear to be working correctly, on next boot up enter the BIOS and check that the wireless facility is enabled.
The BIOS access key could either be F1, F10 or F11 if you are not sure.

Just now, the laptop found and installed Broadcom 4321 AG 802.11 a/b/g draft - n Wi-Fi Adapter and is now working. Wireless switch is also working, blue when on, orange when off.
I guess it needed a driver.
Will post again tomorrow with the continued function of wireless switch whether good or bad.
...Laptop lost connectivity again although the wireless switch is blue in the on position. My guess is that the wireless switch is bad. Is there any way to test this switch?
Update...wireless switch light is orange no matter its position. Also, computer will only boot to Windows Boot Manager screen (only option is to choose OS to boot) and Advance Boot Options (safe mode, etc.) In other words, I can't boot to check the BIOS.

Uninstall the present drivers, go to Device Manager, right click on the Broadcom device then uninstall it, reboot the computer and see if the hardware wizard detects and installs it, install the saved drivers and see how it goes.
NB: I am only suggesting the free driver download and in no way suggesting that you use any other product or service at the above link.
