Question about HP Pavilion dv6629us PC Notebook
Sure , you can
but did you look at HP first, no.?
the drivers are all there.
my guess you used MS media and not HP media
and thus the missing drivers.
but with Ethernet lan chip dead, that kills MS PnP driver support dead. Lan = local area network. Ethernet.
oops HP never sold this PC with W7 ever.
so no drivers there. due to that fact.
just vista! my guess XP dont run there either with only VISTA support.
so that means you get to find them the hard way, if at all.
first is LAN. once that works, w7 comes alive, with PnP magic
plug and play.
OMG this dog used the Nforce chip set.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK-55 / 1.8 GHz
10/100 Ethernet (slow) seems its REALTEK
the HP parts surfer says:
System board (motherboard) for Pavilion dv6000 series - Full-featured (UMA) with integrated Realtek (RT8201CL) NIC
NO LONGER SUPPLIED by HP
see that. that is a realtek chip.
This company is infamous for not supporting newer OS.
seem they Realtek ended support on this chip, now.
and ended at VISTA.
so going w7 is hard, if the VISTA driver does not work
good luck finding it, I could not.
I would buy NIC, USB dongle and use that, w7 certified.
or use the wifi only, the 4 drivers on on the HP page but are
for VISTA , they can be loaded in compatibility mode, ask.
NVIDIA GeForce 7150M
go to nvidial.com and get your drive.
its there, i promise.
