I have an HP Mini 110 that I had to replace the hard drive on. I had a Topic in another forum - http://www.geekstogo..._1#entry2251632 but have not gotten a response. Instead of waiting, I thought I should post here since it's rebuild issue and not malware or virus.

To continue, I installed Windows Vista as the operating system. However, now I cannot download the wireless driver I need to connect to the internet so I can search for more drives. Any suggestions?

Hello butterrice

Try the Windows 7 driver as many are also compatible with Vista, use another computer to download the driver to a USB memory stick and then install it from that, let us know how it goes.

Okay - I downloaded from two different sites the Windows 7 Wireless drivers to a Memory stick and tried to open them on my mini. I got an error for both saying the file was corrupted. I was able to download a WIndows Vista driver but it still shows the yellow sign with exclamation point. My wireless light is on but it doesn't detect anything stating "windows cannot find any networks". When I run the troubleshooter it says "This computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed and configured. Install wireless networking hardware, and verify that the correct drivers are loaded".
