You will have to choose the flavor of windows 7 you have.  load the driver and you should be ok.

Wireless works fine, its the hard wire network card that is not working.

that's not it.  Go to that HP.com click on device sor device drivers (whatever it says), type in 6815 and go, then choose the nr and then choose windows Vista 32 or 64 (whichever you have) then choose the flavor and then scroll down to the network section.  There will be a file you can download and it will self extract when you install it to a folder, then just run the setup from the extracted file folder.  Now it may not work exactly like that, but I promise its close.  If the network card drivers show that they are loaded under device manager then delete them first then run the install.  If the hardware shows exlamation points by them then it will be ok to just run the netwok installer.

You can find device manager by clicking on the globe and just type in 'device manager' into the search field then double click on it.

OK here is what is happening now.  I went to the folder that that file extracted to.  I copied the network card driver to the driver folder.  Now the yello exclamation mark is gone, but it wont connect to the internet and the coprocessor yellow question mark remains.

Its not pulling an IP.  If I go to cmd and do an IPCONFIG it gives me wireless info and the wireless card is off.  If I do a renew, it tells me the wireless card is disconnected.

Download the util from the very first link I gave you.  They aer win7 wireless utilities for that machine.  It doesn't matter if it was or is still working. Load the win 7 utils from HP

go into the control panel, then programs and features and look for Nvidia Drivers, click it, then click uninstall/change and choose remove all nvidia drivers except display. Once it finished restart and retry the driver from Nvidia's website.

There are only 2 drivers listed: 1.) NVIDIA Drivers 1.7 and 2.) NVIDIA PHYSX.

If I click on NVIDIA drivers, it tells me "This will remove the NVIDIA Display Driver.  All driver components and their corresponding entries in the system registry will be permantly removed from your system", Do you wish to contimnue?

So you say to leave the display but there is no option.

OK so I let it remove all, rebooted and even deleted the c:\nvidia folder.  Restarted driver installation and only got the option to install the one file again.

I wondering what diagnostics I can use to test if the network card is bad?

Have fun reinstalling your display drivers because your issue is an Nvidia network driver issue.  Please don't mess with your display.  JamieToner, please look at the initial error that the user is getting before jumping in.

Sorry Jamie, I see you said except display.

StardotstarAuthor Commented:
No issues with the removal and reinstall, display is normal but no network.  I guess the network interface is bad, any tools you know of to diagnose?

BTW I see both yellow and green lights on the adapter so this has to be a driver issue, I know no surprise to you.

I'm thinking total restore back to original then re attempt win 7 update?

Sounds Like the HAL got hosed in the upgrade(one of may reason why i don't do upgrade install) so its not recognizing the proper chipset. I'd suggest against reinstalling vista then trying another upgrade install, just use the win 7 DVD to do a full clean install theres a much less chance some something going wrong this way. If all you have is the win 7 upgrade media here's an article that explains how to use it to do a clean install.

UPDATE: Been away for several days.

Here is what I did, ordered the reinstall DVDs from hp.  Full reinstall and it did the same.  Then I discovered that it was not Identifying the MAC on the network card.

Dowlloaded a program to change the MAC and it came right up!
