Windows 7: Wireless Network Driver for HP Pavilion dm4-3005tx Notebook PC

Wireless Network Driver for HP Pavilion dm4-3005tx Notebook PC

More than a year ago, I bought an HP Pavilion dm4-3005tx through my cousin in Singapore. It is loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I don't know if it is just a coincidence, few weeks after the warranty expires it freezes while starting the windows. It happened several times until it prompt me to repair by inserting the disc recovery which at that time I was unable to use since the disc that I used was already damaged (due to my fault on poor storage). I was forced to reformat my machine using a counterfeit OS of the same version since I have to do it temporarily as I need to use my machine and downloading an ISO for Windows 7 Home Premium and re-installing it using the product key in the sticker is not possible since I am in an area with poor internet connectivity.

After a few months of using a counterfeit OS, I was able to secure an ISO for Windows 7 Home Premium and I decided to reformat my machine using the ISO, however, it has almost all the drivers gone I need to re-install it but my problem is most of the drivers I downloaded from HP is not compatible with the OS I just installed. Specially the driver for wireless network, I cannot connect to the internet using my machine since all the drivers related to networks cannot be used.

I tried all networking drivers available for my machine but all of them is not compatible. How can it be possible? Please I need help from anybody who can help me.

Your suggestion or advise will be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I have completed a clean install and there are many drivers still not working. The following are the list :

Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
Fingerprint Sensor
PCI Device
SM Bus Controller
Unknown Device
Unknown Device

Those are the items marked with yellow triangle in the Device Manager. I tried to update those driver using automatic updating but it failed.

I also tried to download a driver from HP for the VGA for the same model of my machine but after I install it, it freeze while starting windows.

I really don't know how to do about this problem, please help.

Thank you for your suggestion but I already tried installing all of it, still I encountered the same problems.

I have done my research and fortunately I was able to solve graphics issue. I was able to find out that the AMD Graphics Hardware installed into my machine creates a problem every time I installed its driver, I am not sure if it is an incompatibility issue. So, what I did is I never installed the driver for the AMD but rather search on the graphic driver embedded to the processor which is an Intel Sandy Bridge as code name. I download it and install to my machine and its graphics problem is solved somehow. I tried downloading it from the site of Intel.

Other issues except graphic problem remains.

I wish you could give me another suggestions.

I do not understand what problems you are having ? ... If you can not Install the Drivers from the HP Website it sounds like you did not follow all the Steps to get a Clean Install ..

Several time I have performed a Clean Install but it always goes the same, many drivers needed to be install after the Installation of OS but when I tried to install the drivers from HP Support it never solve the problem.

The graphics issue which I solved was made possible by downloading the driver from here;

Products (Formerly Sandy Bridge)

It seems that the AMD bundled with my machine will not be compatible to it after installing the driver, it is seems to be the problem of other drivers.

I myself cannot understand why the support of HP is like this. As I understand the problem happened after an update was automatically installed to my machine. Is it possible that an update can cause problem?
