so you have and old CQ2025 DESKTOP !!! no service tag presented by you, so all answers can be wrong, !!!
sorry win64 will NOT make win32 bit programs run better, sorry.!
but the reverse is for sure true!
but then again no APP stated nor its VERSION ?
why ask here, why not ask HP, real.? ever heard of them.
only they support this PC. !
let me guess, you upgraded the PC and didn't ask HP first.
so now things are dead, sure, as always this happens.
or HDD died, HDD new put put in and MS disks used(ugh)
and its dead, this card, sure,, if not F11 still works, recover.
what makes you think Atheros supports w7-64? what?
OK ill do you work for you, ill do all that now.
Ok I did and both support this OS.
first is HP support , and next is Atheros.
first off, learn that HP has many mother boards used on just one series PC, any PC
then learn that it has both onboard ethernet or PCI-e card Ethernet or even BOTH !
why not up grade it and end the pain with a modern 1GBit lan card now.?with supporting drivers. $5?
HP says this PC came with Windows 7-64 or 8/64bit
tell me now what did you PC come as.????? new?
if in fact the PC was/is not slammed, the F11 key would put it back to day 1 new, and your missing drivers would in fact all be restored to day one conditions, like all HP computers 2006 and newer have. but i best F11 is now dead from slamming the PC.
Slamming = using wrong install media or methods,....!
but here it is, at hp real.
the last gasp?
