HP Pavilion G6: Wi - Fi mobile missing from Device Manager download driver does not help

I have an old HP Pavilion G6-1d98dx I got like a hand running Win 7 Home Premium 64 - bit SP1 and cannot get the wireless working.  The orange/amber light on the F12 key is on and cannot be disabled.  The Wi - Fi equipment is Ralink 5390 rev3.  The device does not appear in the device as one 'hidden' or 'other' Device Manager, much less as a network device.  I downloaded several different drivers on the HP site for this unit, including a dated January 2016, without success.  Any suggestions?


At any time.

I am pleased to have been of assistance.

You don't need to do a thing... the card will work, or it will not be passed the HP welcome screen until you get a card error wireless not supported.

Here are the links to the wireless and bluetooth drivers you need for this card.

This package contains drivers for the Broadcom Wireless LAN Server supported in models cards mobile supported and operating systems.

File name: sp57965.exe

This package contains the Broadcom Bluetooth driver and software for models supported that are running a supported operating system. Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 driver is required to enable the Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 devices and is compatible with Broadcom Bluetooth 3.0 and earlier versions.

File name: sp55079.exe

Please post back and let us know how did the swap of the wireless card.

  • PA: Uninstalled my webcam drivers and now webcam is missing from Device Manager


    I had trouble with my webcam I decided to uninstall the driver to try reinstalling one from scratch.

    The problem is that now my webcam is still not displayed in Device Manager, so I can't access its settings to try to update the driver.

    It was a very stupid thing to do, and now I don't know what to do...

    Thanks in advance!


    Hi Cecilia,.

    Unless you have already done, the first thing I would say is just to reboot the laptop and see if Windows RE-discovered the Webcam and load a driver for it.

    If this does not work, try to run the system restore to return the machine to a point in time before that you deleted the windows driver - see Option 2 below.


    Kind regards

  • CD-ROM/DVD-ROM missing from Device Manager, FRUSTRATED!

    I jumped on my computer today, to copy a disc in iTunes and found that Windows is for some reason, do not recognize my DVD/CD drive.  Now, the drive is very good; This works.  I put in a disc and it runs.  But that's all.  I go to Device Manager to see what is the problem and I find that the knot of READERS of CD-ROM/DVD-ROM is missing altogether.  -What happened?  If anyone can help (not you, Rob;) I already tried everything in your list of suggestions), please.  I would appreciate.


    Hi Dtorres,

    • What exactly do you mean by it works when I insert the disk?

    If the device is missing in the Device Manager, it may be due to hardware failure or if the drive cables are not connected properly. This can also happen if there is a damage in the drive cable, windows will not be able to detect the drive.

    However, you can contact the computer manufacturer to verify if there is any firmware that you can install for the CD / DVD player and if you can run a diagnostic tool for the material.

    You can also start the BIOS of your laptop and check if the drive is detected in the BIOS and post back the result.

    I hope this helps. Let us know the result.

    Thank you and best regards,

I also noticed he wasn't an App icon. "Security system" in the control panel. I installed SP2 to try for a fix, but later he installed only the "security system" App.  I find 'rstrui.exe' in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Restore folder, but when I click it, nothing happens.
    I'm working on a laptop Dell Latitude cpi with a Pentium II 363 and 128 MB of Ram.

    The reason for all the downtime is you have 2 OS installed (partially), & windows

    XP is you expected in the Committee to xp & remove the possibility of return to 98... its been a long time

    but, open Disk Cleanup utility, remove the previous operating system (select all), once through, open the disc

    to run, type: appwiz.cpl locate the large fo; der with the old operating system, remove it, close when thru.

  • HP p077tx: missing in Device Manager Wifi adapter

    I have a HP p077tx laptop and it is under warranty.

    As for 2 months I have problems with wifi as my wifi adapter used will be unavailable after that I woke up my laptop from sleep. I mean the wifi was not simply disconnected, but there was no adpater wifi under the Device Manager list. Once I chose scan for hardware changes generally used to be back again.

    But last Wednesday, there just no and now it is gone forever. Tried rebooting several times which did not help of course.

    I thought the system restore using the windows system restore to a date before I had this problem. However, as the laptop starts again wifi was back and works normally as it used to. I have never put my laptop to sleep but just turned off. Next morning the wifi always worked and I thought that the problem has been resolved, but it was only before I put my phone back to sleep and later, he was gone.

    I also tried to remove the drivers installed for it programs and features, but it does not allow me to uninstall them and jumped an error saying that it cannot be deleted. \update 65.

    There is no option to uninstall the driver from Device Manager, as I said is not even appear in the list.

    So I tried to reset the laptop and it's same thing happened for a restoration of the system. After putting the laptop on standby it wasn't everything again.

    Help, please.

    Make sure that you back up all personal files you do not lose to a portable hard drive and create a restore point by using System Restore utility first, because editing the registry might cause some problems with your PC, also do not start and you have to reinstall the operating system.
