Tried loading the vista 32 wireless drivers for the HP pavillion dv7-1260us laptop.  Drivers will not load properly for the wireless card.  Downloaded drivers directly from the HP site.  Tech suport was not helpful....

Could vista drivers be conflicting?

    Hi dnscompanies,

    I'm just curoius, but are installing in Administrator? If not try installing in Administrator. Also try disabling the User Account Control Feature, once you've done that try installing the wireless drivers again.
