HP Compaq 6720 drivers problem
Posted on 2007-11-23
I cant find drivers for this notebook. There are drivers on hp site, but seems they are not correct for my notebook. I have successfully installed chipset, sata ahci, vga, wireless, bluetooth, but having trouble with these:
1) modem - there isn't driver for modem on the site
2) nic - there is a driver and it does install it, but the card is just not working on lan - cannot receive ip from dhcp, and if I set it manually, it accepts, but it behaves like it isnt on the network, cant see any other pc/router. It isnt problem with cable, 2 cables are tried, and they work with other Pc's. When configured to receive ip from dhcp, it receives 169.xxx.xxx.xxx ip, and therefore diplays limited or no connectivity. It is detected as Intel 82562GT 10/100.
3) unknown device - related to ACPI.
4) sound card - it isnt even detected, there isnt an option in BIOS to disable/enable it - when installing driver it cant install since it cant find it.
Any advices? I cant use internet to try to search them online, since nic is not working properly
