Windows 7 cant find wireless networks

Hey all, sorry if this has been answered before but I am having alot of trouble.

Today I got a new HP Probook 4510s.
It came with Windows XP pro and as soon as it booted up it found 7 different wireless networks and I was able to connect time mine easily.
I then decieded to install Windows 7 as it came with the CD, after the installation was complete I booted up and for some reason it says it cannot find any wireless networks..
When I run a cable straight from the back of the router it connects perfectly..

I have spent all day trying to work out how to solve this, If anyone could offer any advice I would be extremely grateful!

Tim
