Hi jimbo1949,

 

Why did you recently install Windows 7 on this PC ? What was on it before ? List Model and make of PC or laptop.

 

Usually go to your PC or Laptop manufacturer's web site put in your info, OS, 32BIT OR 64BIT. Look for them there.

 

Also windows update, set to automatically check for updates. When in device mananger is there a yellow exclamation point next to these devices ? Open them up, right click select properties and in Drivers tab select update driver, select browse my computer or have it search online.

Missed that part. Then using explanation to updating in device manager for generic Windows driver in Windows 7, unless this is on a disc OP has.

What is the full model number for the computer? Enter that on the HP support web site: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/drivers.html then download the drivers you need, starting with Network.

 

Put on a flash drive and take to the computer with the problem to install it.

 

Once you have internet access you can get the rest of the drivers directly on the machine that needs them.

Hi there,

 

You ran into one of the very common mistakes,for you to fix it your going need to somehow get onto another machine and go to the driver manufactures page and download install driver.

 

Once you have driver download onto usb stick,and then go to control panel on your computer the go to device manger then click down to network drives,right click and ul see update drivers,follow on screen instructions then locate the driver to usb stick you saved it on then you will have your network drivers back.

 

Hope i helped!
