A lot of linux distribution comes with a modified driver that does not work in many cases. If you find that your card does not work, it's very likely that this is the cause. To correct this, you will have to download and compile the driver from The mailing list is also very useful. The original writer of the drivers, Donald Becker is usually there to help answer your questions. 
In Ubuntu Linux (6.10 and 6.06), the Tulip driver causes lockups during the installation routine. However, once Ubuntu is installed the Tulip driver works properly. Quite a strange problem. 
If the above does not work, and you are using a Cardbus PCMCIA card, then it may be the following problem:

G6-2210us usb 3.0 Host Controller

w8 was day1, OS. per
HP does not support w7. on this LT.
w7 32bit or 64bit, ?????
so its doomed to fail.? sure, and so you discovered that.

you clicked, "load automatcially in DM" with or with out internet connected, (yes, be connected is always best)

there are only 3 ways to do this, (if possible at all, im a driver expert)
1: read the HP page, , no w7 there, zero support w7, checked.
2; open PC, read numbers off the chip, amazing no? find the chip?
3: or run the PCI scanner, I uses, and let that nice tool find the chip and its real maker name (code) and chip code.
bingo #3 is easy lacking support.
4: or ask on HP forum, well its there. ananswer.

so lets do HP first,
it says at that it came with W8.
so you downgraged it to w7, and HP dont support down grades.
my guess is w8 was infected, and you didnt reload, w8 from scratch using F11 key, Restore, Am I correct?

W7 lacks drivers for chips not invented back in 2009?
your pc is newer than 2009 , and W7 may have no drivers for it.
if you look close *(unlike my elitebook) the w8 has the usb3 driver inside windows,8 and 8.1 already. so no HP driver is offered.
then you go to W7 and expect to find it there,

here is how to use the PCI scanner a free program.
run this and it tells you every chip in the system.
almost. all.
then when you find, USB3,
get the 2 codes.
mfg maker code, and chip code.
with that we go to the actual MFG and find a driver.
some chips in the HP are buried deeper and only HP drivers work

on my LT, the USB 3 is (usb2 is intel)
is NEC company
chip code 0194h= upd720200

In April 2009, Renesas Technology and NEC Electronics reached a basic agreement to merge by around April 2010.
see , you need to know these facts to find drivers.
its not NEC now.
its Renesas, (mine , not yours, this is but 1 example)

some USB chips need a reflash, or have bad drivers.

last and best
see Pauls answer at HP

here is the header from INF file>: tells what is there.

; SMBUSamd.inf
; Installation file (.inf) for the AMD SMBus device.
; Copyright (c) 2008-2011 Advanced Micro Devices Inc.

Signature="$Windows NT$"

DefaultDestDir = 12

%AMD% = AMD.Mfg, NTamd64

and last
direct from AMD, (no virus bs)
I think this covers all SMbus chips. they made.

Foxconn Cinema Deluxe PCI Slot

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

Click on the Tech Support tab.
(Overview / Specification / News / Tech Support)

Type: Click on the blue down arrow to the right of this box, then click on Drivers

AMD chipset driver for Win 7
AMD chipset driver for Vista
AMD chipset driver for WinXP

The chipset term used is for the motherboard chipset.
The motherboard chipset for your motherboard, is an AMD 785G - Northbridge chip, and an AMD SB710 - Southbridge chip.

Scroll down to AMD 785G chipset in the left column.

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express technology is HIGH-speed graphics.

Using a graphics card in a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Using Integrated graphics from the motherboard, is Not high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
1) PCI bus and Integrated graphics

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard graphics. A term that explains better I feel.
ON the motherBOARD )

2) IDE (PATA) bus
3) SATA bus
4) USB bus
5) Ethernet
6) Audio (Sound)

(CPU = Central Processing Unit.
Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.
The 'Brain' of the computer.
Does NOT mean Personal Computer )

This is why I think you need to download, AND install the proper chipset drivers. (Proper being matched to the Operating System)

When you go to download, AND install.
I would like to know the procedure you used.
(The driver file should be saved, then opened, and installed)

Post back in a Comment.

(I have had some people who downloaded, but did not install; and thought that would work)

Integrated Circuit, ]
