There are 4 different brands of wireless cards that came with that model, you need to figure out which one you have.

  1. Intel
  2. Ralink (2 different ones, RT3090, RTL8191SE)
  3. Broadcom
  4. Atheros

see if this utility can identify it http://www.zhangduo.com/udi.html

Then download the appropriate driver from here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4063&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=4199638#N1387
