I need help and fast, I bought an HP mini netbook as a wedding present for my sister, (getting married on Saturday) it comes with win7 starter and I wanted her to have a better version so I installed 7 pro. But now the driver for the wireless card isn't working, Ive tried multiple drivers and installed each multiple times but the wireless still doesn't work

Did you happen to try the website for the HP Mini? I'm sure you could find a driver somewhere on the site.
