Pavilion DV7-6195us: reliable wireless connection

It is of a Pavilion DV7-6195us. It connects wireless to a provided Comcast router/gateway. My connection drops randomly, and my solution was to click on the bottom wireless icon to the right of the taskbar, disconnect my network, wait 5 seconds and reconnect. It is successful in 90% of cases.

I looked in Device Manager > network adapters and see: Intel Centrino Wireless n 1000 #2, Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter #2, Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adapt #3 and Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

This laptop was bought second-hand from a guy who did the free update for Windows 10 without doing all the preparation work. I restarted it in Win 7, 64 bit. The laptop is starting in 2012 and I did the best I could to update the latest drivers, but trying to install the latest WiFi driver gave me the message that says that the driver installed is newer than the one I tried to install. The current version of the driver is as of 1/26/2014(Intel Centrino). I don't know why it is a #2, and I do not know whence the Microsoft Virtual Miniport #2 and #3. Their versions of the drivers are identical and are dated from 2006.

I wonder if they interfere with the Intel N 1000? Should I uninstall them? Is there a driver later for the Centrino N 1000 found somewhere other than to HP support site?

My goal here is to stabilize my connection to my wireless router.

My wife's cell phone is a Dell Inspiron which is located not far from where my laptop is, about the same distance from the router, and she has no problem connecting.

Thank you.


Sorry, I sent the graphic driver not the network driver.

Here is the link for Intel Wireless drivers for Microsoft Windows 7 Version 14.2 Rev A sp54841

Again, I am sorry that I did.

  • Pavilion dv7 - 1023cl does not connect to 1 Gbps but other devices will be

    According to the specifications of my laptop Pavilion dv7 - 1023 cl, it has a gigabit ethernet port, but no matter how hard I try, I can't get it to connect to my network at that speed.  Instead, it connects to 100 Mbps / other laptops, including a model dv7 later have no problems connecting to 1 Gbps.

    I took it completely and then reinstalled the ethernet driver realtek from the hp support web site, but it still connects only to 100 Mbps.

    Anyone has an idea why this does not work and what I can do about it?

    Thank you.

    According to the specifications for the DV7 - 1023 cl, page the ehternet port only supports 10 / 100 Mbit/s and this would explain why the 1 Gbps is not negotiated.

    Where did you see that it supports 10/100/1000?

  • Pavilion DV7-6195us: replacement keyboard on a Pavilion DV7-6195us

    I watched a couple videos on You Tube, but the Pavilion DV7 show is not the same as mine.

    I know that there are many varieties of entertainment DV7 laptops.  One of the videos shows the cover that surrounds the keyboard as rupture near the top corners left and right of the keyboard. Mine is solid from before backward, and has a border of lighted (illuminated) around the touchpad.

    My question: How can I ensure that the keyboard that I buy is good?

    There are a lot of keyboards for sale on ebay and amazon and the prices range from $ 17 to $ 51 +.

    If you know a video training here on the HP support site, please let me know.

    Thank you

    You have misunderstood me. I buy one on Amazon. My only fear is that even if they say that they provide one of their warehouses, other buyers have to wait 50 days or more.

    I've been waiting a ridiculous amount of time before, but it was through ebay, even if the seller claims a U.S. address.

  • Pavilion Elite m9428f PC Wireless Connection

    I have a Pavilion Elite m9428f desktop PC.  It is connected by cable/wire to a router that is connected to a modem to cable box.  I bought a HP all-in-one computer and want to move my desktop computer in another room in my house, but to be able to continue to access the internet.  My desktop computer can be connected wireless to my router (Linksys), which is compatible with the wireless?  If so can you recommend where I can find instructions on how to set up.

    In addition, I read that my office has an antenna wireless inside the tower.  In addition, the original hard disk supplied with the computer crashed a year ago.  I have more files/programs of HP who were on the hard drive.

    Any information is appreciated. My knowledge in this process is limited, so if there is a way to do this in an explanation "for Dummies", it would be useful.

    Thank you for your time,


    Hi, Tom:

    According to the specifications of product for your PC, it should be ready completely wireless.

    Look in the Device Manager. You should see 2 NICs listed. One wired and one wireless.

    Hi 393871345,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    This wireless problem could be caused by the failure of hardware or software. Now, you can go through the steps to exclude the possibilities of the cause.

    (1) not having this problem with the laptop before upgrading to Windows 8.1?

    (2) when you upgrade to 8.1 Windows, did you follow all of the HP and Windows updates?

    To be able to test the unit itself, I suggest the document following "tests to material (Windows 7, Vista) failures. Please select the control using HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFIoption and then select the option for the Component Tests. Under component Tests, you will see an option for the Wireless Module. The Wireless Module passes all the tests?

    Now I'm longer lines that it is a software problem, compared to a hardware problem. After checking what Windows operating systems are supported by HP (on your laptop), the higher operating system that is supported, is Windows 7. As you have upgraded beyond this, you may be able to find the driver updated, you need the component manufacturer.

    To find out the manufacturer of the wireless component, you can always check for the name of the manufacturer's Device Manager. Once you don't have the name, you can visit the Web site of the manufacturers for available updates.

    Please let me know the results of the above steps.

  • HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC: Wireless Off after 10 upgrade Windows

    I adjusted has upgraded to Windows 10 (x 64). Since doing the without wireless is OFF and I can't turn it on (Realtek RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter). The F12 button stays amber (just pressing and disable / turn off the airplane mode). Wired Ethernet card (Realtek) seems to work OK.

    The wireless card information below. The Device Manager list this adapter and says it's working properly (no warning or 'X'). I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver in Device Manager. I was not able to find a new version of the driver from the Realtek site. The Windows 10 Network and Sharing Center troubleshooting tool detects any problems.

    The system settings screen (see picture) WiFi won't let me turn on the wireless (if I click on the button to turn the wireless off to, it comes immediately jumps back to the off position)

  • Where can I find what should be my temperatures of the CPU for laptop HP Pavilion DV7-6195us?

    I download a software to view the inside temperatures and even if they have little symbols (green check, red/yellow flame, etc.) by every internal part (e.g. CPU0) I want to know what HP internal temperature range is recommended.  Thank you.

    What CPU is installed in your laptop?

    It isn't really a question of what HP is recommended. Your concern should be what the CPU manufacturer lists as Tjunction for the CPU.

    If your laptop is the Intel Core i7-2630QM installed then lists Intel 100 c as TJunction. I found the technique for your laptop here. You should be concerned if you see time > 85 degrees Celsius. Here is a link to Intel for your processor plug.

Please y at - he a person who can help?

    Thank you for your effort


    Ok. Thanks for the informative image.

    Install this driver for the Intel HD graphics card. Then install this driver for the mini-PCIe Radeon HD graphics adapter. The latter should give you the switchable graphics option in the Catalyst Control Center.

    Best regards


  • Pavilion dv7-6195us lost drive D, but won an F drive after a blue screen stand

    Today, I saw the dreaded after a udate Microsoft blue screen so I turned off and restarted and everything "seemed" fine until I noticed my "D" drive was now looking to drive "F". I see everything that was in my "D" drive has been changed on disk "F".

    I did a "Restart" and then noticed that I didn't drive "D" or "F". I turned off the laptop via a software, restarted the computer and now have a drive "F".

    No idea why this is happening? How can I get my drive "D" back (I have a number of programs that drive the "D" of source for data, while asssuring that I will lose everything that is now featured in my drive "F".

    Thank you


    Hi, Stan:

    Only, you should be able to change the drive letter using disk management tool in windows 7.

    See the link below for how to do this.

    I don't think that changing the drive letter should have an effect on the files on that partition.

  • Pavilion DV7-1451nr: Wireless button stays amber

    My pavilion dv7-1451nr turns wireless keyboard blue when I have to reset the motherboard by removing the battery and press the power button / stop seconds, after which I plug in charger to him while leaving the battery and press the power button / stop. After that, I would like to press f10 to enter the bios setup, then I would like to load the defaults, save and exit.

    After doing all that I have explained above, the wireless button becomes blue and wireless assistant would be activated and indicates that the wireless is turned on. If I check in the Device Manager, I see the hardware details and driver wireless populated it and everything should work fine, but once I restart the computer, the wireless button would refuse to start. There is orange. If I try to check the State of the material status and driver WLAN on Device Manager, they would be is more filled it more and wireless assistant will refuse to start. If by chance he started, this would indicate that the wireless is turned off by the Device Manager.

    I had tried uninstalling the wireless LAN driver and reinstalled just in case the problem came from the software side but not solution. Just this afternoon, I have decoupled from the computer and removed the card WLAN, dusted it and replace it back, but the problem persists.

    The type of wireless network card is Atheros AR5007 802.11 b/g WiFi adapter. I noticed something this afternoon, however, after having checked the service manual for the computer, I realized that there is specific types of the wireless card compatible for specific regions. For example, the number of appropriate wlan spare parts which must be on my computer is 582564-002 and have this with references with the number of spare part of wlan on the wireless card available on my computer that begins with sps 452..., I realized something was wrong. I'll leave that to stop you guys from HP, but I really need a solution to this problem very fast because it's really annoying me. Thank you.

    Hello @LL_Cool_J,

    Thanks for the information!

    I don't know what you mean, when he asked if the model is 50xx or 40xx. Confirming the WLAN Module is a little difficult, because there are several manuals maintenance for this model.  I was able to refine the selection a bit, by comparing the numbers of spare part for hard drives.  Based on this REPAIR, the WLAN Modules you have listed, 582564-002, 593836-001, must be compatible.  However, I don't see the Atheros as option in this manual.  To be on the safe side, you can contact our telephone support HP.  Please use the following and create a folder for your question and contact HP. If you do not live in the United States / Canada, please click on the link below to get contact information for your region.

  • DV7-6195us, a 15mm high hard drive adapt?

    I have a laptop DV7-6195us.

    I want to upgrade the hard drive in the drive Bay Second to a Western Digital WD20NPVT, 2 TB hard drive. This drive is 15mm high. My current drives are 9.5 mm in Bay 1, 12.5 mm in bay 2.

    The larger hard drive will fit inside the bay, with or without secondary hard drive bay changing? If the change is necessary, what is involved for the mod?

    Thank you.



    Here are the specifications of your HP Pavilion dv7-6195us Entertainment Notebook computer. Here is the HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service of Guide for your computer. According to the "maintenance and Service Guide", Page 6 - Chapter 1 - "Product Description", only the following drive formats are supported;

    Hard drives - Supports 6.35 - cm (2.5 in.) 12.7 mm hard drives (.50in), 9.5 mm (. 37-in) and 7.0 mm (. 28 - in.) thick

    According to the information above, the answer is that a 15mm disc does not fit into your computer. Change can allow the reader to adapt, but could compomise the drive and/or computer. I wouldn't recommend any change to this effect.

  • Pavilion dv7-6b55dx: loss of internet connectivity wireless with Win 10 update

    I have a Pavilion dv7-6b55dx notebook with Intel Centrino - N6150 wireless network card. I've recently updated to Win 7 to win 10 64-bit.  The first negative consequence is the deactivation of my wireless internet connection. The without wire/switch market stop on the keyboard is more worked as planned but simply tilted airplane mode on or off.  I followed HP troubleshooting for wireless connectivity problems associated with Windows 10 improvements, including the reinstall the NIC driver wireless, without any positive result.  It seems that 10 Windows does not recognize network N6150 map.

    Anyone know if there is a fix for this problem (Microsoft? HP? Intel?) In the meantime, I came back to the Windows 7 operating system.  If there is no patch or another solution at this moment I may decide to go with a wireless USB adapter, but prefer not to do this, if possible.

    I did not have a facility clean, but simply ran the standard upgrade ensuring once again I did it using a Wi - Fi and ethernet not.  It worked very well - fully operational wireless connectivity.  Thanks for pointing out the importance of having wireless enabled when you upgrade!
