    I even went to the AMD website - looking for a drivers there but nothing..

  • boyerk Nov 04, 2008

    Do you know where I can get that information? I called Hp and they couldnt even get it for me!

  • boyerk Nov 04, 2008

    IU found my full specs for my model - but cant seem to find were I can download the driver for coprocessor or the ethernet card!

    please help!

  • boyerk Nov 04, 2008

    Here is the list of drivers that HP allows me to download from them - I came to this site after I put in what model of laptop I have - under the network section they only have drivers for bluetooth and wireless.

    This is for the 32 bit version of vista - I have tried the 64 bit as well and both dont offer ethernet or coprocessor drivers!

  • boyerk Nov 04, 2008

    oh - sorry to answer your questions - yes I downloaded both those drivers - the wiresless and the software solution - with no avail

  • boyerk Nov 04, 2008

    I tried installing the intel driver packedge and it says that I dont have that hard ware. Here is the specifications for my computer:

    I lost the recovery discs in a move - and HP wants to charge me 45 bucks to have them replaced... ARG!

    its a hp pavilion dv2810ca

  • boyerk Nov 05, 2008

    My model (dv2810ca) - I have since switched to Ubuntu and am getting used to - but from what I have foudn out - from ubuntu is that that i have a HP nVIDIA MCP67 - LAN Controller (PHY: Realtek RTL8201CL/CP) so - I will be searching out a driver for this.

    I wonder why HP makes this an almost impossible task to not use their version of vista which is full of garbage software?

Go to
service and support. put in the model of your laptop which is dv2000 and the operating system, which is Window Vista. and download all the driver for the laptop.
don't worry, they don't have the Windows Vista listed in the download.

    did you download the HP software Update from the "Software solution" and the Intel pro/wireless form the "network"??

    the NIC drivers is included in the wireless. and the HP software should have the co-processor.

    after you intall the software and still have the !"yellow" let me know.

  • Frank

    as far as the co-porcessor, do you any info on that???

  • Frank
    Frank Nov 04, 2008

    do you have the original CD that came with laptop??
    do you still have the HP recovery manger???

    all of the drivers should be on the CD.

    use a working machine and explore the CD and extract the drivers.

    congrats to you. at least you have a direction where to get the driver.

    Hp and all computer manufacture want to give you all the nonsense, so they list as 30 porgrams or 45 programs, etc. (mainly a sales pitch).

    as far as hardward, who ever going to give them a good deal.

Go to HP's Website and search for your laptop; it is very possible that your computer does not have the drivers installed; look for drivers, then "Disk Drives" and download the file.
