I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 on my laptop and now I have no wireless. I have tried several times updating the wireless driver, but it still won't work.

Computer Info:
HP Pavilion dv7t-6b00 CTO Quad Edition Entertainment Notebook PC
Intel core-i7
12G RAM

I've also had issues trying to install updates for the AMD graphics and Realtek PCIE card reader drivers.

Totally lost and I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

Install the Chipset driver from the HP website.

Reboot and see how things are. Looks like all the drivers you may need are also there.

What does Device Manager look like? What is flagged in yellow?

Thank you for your response. I was finally able to get it working last night. I had tried several reboots as well as "installing" or "repairing" the drivers for the wireless adapter all with no success. Finally, last night I completely uninstalled the wireless drivers and then rebooted. Once I had rebooted I did a fresh install of the driver software for the adapter and rebooted again. This seems to have cleared up my problem. In case anyone else has this issue though I wanted to let you all know that I originally tried this with the drivers from the HP website and had no success. I was however able to get his approach to work when I used the drivers from the Intel website.

In case anyone wants to try...

Go to the Intel Driver Update site and run the detection utility
Once it identifies the driver for your specific wireless adapter download it
Run the installer
When prompted DO NOT choose "install" or "repair". Instead choose "remove".
Once the installer is finished reboot your computer
After the reboot run the installer you downloaded again and this time choose "install"
Once the installer is finished reboot your computer
