64-bit Windows 7 driver for Atheros AR5007 in dv7-1468nr

I have been in communication with Microsoft and HP technical support both on this issue.

Can we please have a time frame on how long before that we will have a driver for the wireless card that is in this model the actual 64-bit?

I don't want to sound rude here, but Acer has been much easier to get around the problem of driver for windows 7.

Microsoft did confirm this evening that there is no 64-bit for this AR5007 driver and back to HP.

Atheros seems to deal specifically with suppliers more with the support of its prodiucts, as it is my return to HP after six years of absence and the fact that my company is jumping through the hoops for the HP partnership, I would like an honest answer from an employee of HP.

How long before that this driver is available in 64 bits?

Until that time, all of the product is worthless for me as a professional and as a student for the simple reason that when you try to use a suppliant of security required for authentication, the network manager crash when using the measure of 802. 1 x. Microsoft has identified that specifically a driver related issue because there is no driver 64-bit available.

Not to play against each other here, but in my profession and in my studies, I tend to promote these products that seem to work better and where assistance is available. The Acer also contained an Atheros card, but it was changed to use a broadcom driver in Windows 7. No idea why or how, I know that it works and it supports the Cisco PEAP supplicant, which is an important issue with the dv7-1468nr and Windows 7 with the Atheros AR5007 wireless device.

Other related driver issues such as the multimedia remote that might be expected given that windows 7 has not officially released, but when I contacted support on the card reader does not not (another feature that works out of the box on an Acer hardware), I was told basically sorry charlie, good luck. Fortunately, I was able to locate an XP driver for the card reader works. The media remote is a trivial question, but the wireless is a serious problem. If it cannot be resolved within a reasonable time, I fear I will be boxing it up to return to where it was purchased, as defective. the deployment is in a few days...

lets hope that we can really appropriate at this time that drivers.


After three long sessions with Microsoft and a few sessions where I was not very tolerable with the "apology" given for drivers not made available via the website of HP, I was able to refine the exact question to something other than a real driver file.

If the question was not in fact the driver file, it does not change the fact that HP should provide drivers on their website that they will BE supported for all operating systems promoted regardless of the version (Home Basic, premium, professional, ultimate, etc..). It became a problem in my final conversation of a HP technician before they gave me a link to a driver file real 64 bit, of course claim immunity from liability for any damage as a result of the application. The link of this driver is here.

Now for the real root of the problem.

On the new installation, there are several devices that have remained unknown in Device Manager.

Day after day, a lesbianism HP drivers and applications to solve problems.

What was actually the connection magaer crash on trying to manually create a connection by using the Cisco's PEAP Protocol was a corrupt application of Cisco installation. Through the process of trying to repair the installation and actually manually change the registry and remove all traces of the application with Microsoft in the remote session, it was determined that the system had become corrupt and need a fresh 'custom' install.

After installation, using all the HP and Microsoft drivers only, (no application of third party still installed) I have successfully install the 64-bit application Cisco PEAP for 64-bit Vista and create the connection which is required.

To date, there is only one problem with this laptop and I expect a fix from HP for it in the coming days.

The HP MediaSmart application for this machine special 64-bit is always just a touch unstable running Windows 7 Professional.

I hope that it can save someone else the days of frustration I endured everything in trying to solve this problem.

  • Pavilion a1400n: Windows XP driver for a LaserJet 1200 printer attached to a Windows 7 computer

    Where can I find the driver Windows XP on a 32-bit PC wants to be able to add a printer connected to a PC running Windows 7 64 bit which are on my home network?

    I worked through the process of adding a printer to my Windows XP machine that I can get to the point in the Add Printer Wizard after the navigation of the printer and choose what I click Next and the response that I actually want add the printer that is on the Windows 7 PC. I am then presented with a dialog box indicating that the INF file is necessary. I downloaded the drivers that are on http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=58928 & swLangOid = 8 & swEnvOid = 4063 and tried each of them pointing to the directory where they are each. When I do that I said that "Windows cannot locate a suitable driver. Contact your administrator for help to locate and install a correct driver.

    Where can I find the suitable driver for PC Windows XP print to a printer connected to a Windows 7 PC on my network?

    I found a solution to this problem, but this isn't the ability to print a document from my XP computer to a shared printer connected to my Windows 7 computer. The solution I implemented was to connect my XP computer to the printer via a parallel cable. I went with this approach for two reasons.

    First of all, I realized that none of the drivers for this printer are available for Windows 7 64-bit allow me to print a document double sided or in a brochure (print booklet of course depends on the ability to print double-sided) from my Windows 7 computer. The dirver for this printer on my XP (32 bit) provides these capabilities. The 64-bit Windows 7 driver that Microsoft provides through Windows Update appears to support these capabilities, but when these options are selected, that the document prints single sided. Windows 7 64-bit universal printer driver for this printer that is available on the HP site is not yet expected to provide these features. It's as if HP abandoned for most of this printer. I understand that this is an old printer, but what I find amazing, it is that he was not so old a printer when Windows 7 64-bit was new, so why can't HP provide the latest version of the driver that could perform these functions? (Of course I can just be assuming that at some point it might). Surely it cannot take up that much space on their server. The other question is why the universal printer driver for Windows 7 64 bit cannot provide these capabilities? XP driver 32 bit I have, which is also a universal printer driver that I downloaded several years ago on the HP site, provides the capability. I have tried downloading a version of XP 32 - most recent bit of the driver to see if it was stripped of these capabilities.

    Second, I chose to use the parallel connection because my XP computer has a parallel port, I already had a parallel cable which was not used, and doing so allows me to have the printer connected permanently on both computers. Tempting to connect two computers using a cable USB would require to manually switch the USB of a computer connection to the other whenever I tried to print from the computer that was not connected.

    Need a (free) compatible with Windows 7 driver for Lexmark Z13

    Hi nikua,

    According to the Windows 7 Compatibility Center https://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Hardware&p=Lexmark%20Z13%20Inkjet%20Printer&v=Lexmark&uid=16000&pf=3&pi=0&c=Printers%20%26%20Scanners&sc=Ink-Jet%20Printers&os=32-bit the Lexmark Z13 is 'compatible' with Windows 7 therefore the default drivers should be sufficient.

    Of course this model is no longer available for Lexmark won't provide drivers for Windows 7. If you can't get your printer to work then maybe it's time to think about buying a new.

    Your computer came with XP? If your computer came with VISTA and was never made for XP, so no XP drivers will be available for the system. I looked at the HP site and could not find XP drivers, which probably means that it is a model of Vista, not XP. If it came with XP then call HP and they will be able to send you a XP disc for a small fee, like $15 or more.

    Hello Thirdsmith, I read on another Forum that the Member had the same card that was in his system, the same model as your number and it installed in another system with Windows 7 x 64, went on the Windows Update site and the device was found and drivers downloaded and installed for the Asus NT SC/ATSC TV card.

    I can't check this, since I have no personal experience with this TV card.

    Just some thoughts.

    I'm English, living in Spain.  I just bought a laptop Samsung 7 times in the Portugal.  Windows 7 has been installed with UK location + English language, the region is set to the United Kingdom, the language to English and the default location in the UK

    I downloaded the Windows 7 driver for my printer HP C4340 on the HP UK site.  I chose the English driver (PS_AIO_03_Nonnet_Full_Win_WW_130_140.exe).  However, when installing the driver always INSISTS on the default of Spanish language - it gives me some options.  I can't find the settings on the computer or in Windows 7 that relate to the Spanish at all!  I even tried disconnected from the internet (where he picked up a location of my ISP).

    Any ideas? -J' ran!


    Don't forget to change the language of Non-Unicode, so defining, then check any changes:

    In the Control Panel, go to the region and language.

    Enter in the administration tab.

    Click settings to change system locale and change its value to English.

    Restart the PC and check any change.

  • There is no Windows 7 driver for my HP printer

    Original title: cannot remove unspecified device

    There is no Windows 7 driver for my printer, because it's an older printer (about 5 years I think) so I had to use another driver provided by HP that I could print correctly.  Problem is that the printer appears under devices not specified.  I removed the device in Device Manager, but it still appears under devices not specified.  When you right click, you don't have the ability to remove the instrument or run it as an administrator.

    If anyone knows how to remove the device, please let me know.  Thank you!
