can you please go to device manager and send us a screen print.

Control Panel\System and Security\System/device manager check under network adapters to see if you have any issues.

It says the drivers for my device are not installed.
How do I install the drivers without being able to connect to the internet?
The ethernet isn't working for me either.

Welcome Heiser

You will need to go to the HP website with another computer with internet access. Then download the correct drivers for your Wifi & ethernet for your HP model number. Then transfer them to a USB flash drive. Then copy them to a new temporary folder on the laptop. See if you can install them at this point.
