Reinstalling Windows 7: Drivers missing

Hey,

I had serious problem with Windows 8 Release Preview and had to fully reinstall Windows 7 (Home Premium x64) on my HP Pavillon g6. The problem is that a lot of drivers are missing, especially network related drivers. I can't connect to any network.

Please, I really need help.
Thanks.

I'd be happy to go and try to find the drivers you need. Just tell me what exact model you need for each driver, and I'll get as many as I can. You can find this info in the device manager.

Thanks. There is actually not a single data about my network card in the device manager; only bluetooth devices. There is nothing. I have no idea what could've done that.

Here is a link to all drivers for your laptop. I say just try to download all you need there, or do this

I can't access any network on my laptop, so I have no access to the web either.

Do you happen to know what network driver you need? Wireless or Wired? Which model do you need, as there are 12 different models.

Both, and I have no idea which driver I need.. This is ridiculous. Thank you so much for your help.

I'll download all of them, put them in a zip, and upload it. Then you can install them all and see which ones work.

In the future follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

You should have prepared by looking in your Device manager to see your exact wireless driver, put it on a stick or CD to get online quickly, gotten the rest of the drivers from Windows Updates, then after all Updates any missing drivers could be found on the the HP Downloads webpage for your model.

To determine now the exact wireless driver make/model use Hardware Identification
on the listing for wireless or network driver. Is there any driver already installed under Network drivers? You may be able to connect now by wire to get your drivers.
