Question about Computers & Internet
We purchased an HP Pavilion 6700 laptop from Best Buy several weeks ago. It came with Windows Vista installed. We are unable to install and run some of our necessary software with Vista. We found the drivers on HP that should support Windows XP. But we still cannot get the wireless and non-wireless network cards to work. We are unable to join the laptop to our internal domain or access the internet. Are there additional drivers not readily provided by HP that are required?

I have a HP 6700. I formatted and installed Server 2003 and was happy but was not able to find sound drivers. HP had me to reinstall vista via recovery disc; but now the machine will not stop rebooting ! I have usd the recovery disc twice over one week period and the only way it operates 'normally' is under Safe Mode with Networking. I used Saundra Lite and noticed that the 80 gig hard drive is partitioned, only 24 gigs are recognized. I am able to format the other 50 gigs via device manager but when I reboot the newly formed partition disappears....please help..

At another computer, please, go HERE and download Belarc Advisor pc audit utility. This utility will audit your pc's hardware and software.
You may want to also go HERE and download CPU-Z (another pc audit utility (it will only audit hardware)).
Now, "sneakernet" those downloads over to the Pavilion 6700 and install/run them.
Post back here w/ the chipset that is identified for your motherboard and any other information relevant to your integrated (built-in) wired and wireless NICs.
This will, hopefully, lead us to where we might be able to find XP drivers for your integrated hardware.
Please, let me know if this response was a "FixYa"
or "Helpful" for you or, of course, if you have
any additional questions, etc on this topic.
If the information I provided you w/ resolved your
problem or lead you to a resolution for your
problem or an answer to your question, then, a
"FixYa" rating would be most appreciated. @:)

Very often it will take more than one exchange of
information between you and an expert in order to
resolve your problem. If a proposed solution
doesn't work for you, don't rate it yet. Instead,
post back here letting us know and we'll continue to
work w/ you until we find a solution that does work

vista has still so many problems regarding compatibility issues. howevr, there are already many fixes to that problem.
if you go to HP website, im sure youll find out there what your looking for.
btw, about your questions, there are no extra drivers required . those drivers are pre-loaded already in vista. what you want to look for are drivers that are vista capable to your wifi card.
