HP Pro 3500 MT Windows 7 Ethernet Controller Driver

Hey all :)

 

I'm having a problem with the HP Pro 3500 MT PC. It came installed with Windows 8, but because the PC is for work, I needed Windows 7. So, I installed Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and now I can't get the Internet working at all. The computer tells me that I don't have a driver and there are no network adapters listed in Device Manager.

 

 I've tried installing the correct drivers from the HP website, but the PC returns with a message saying that the drivers could not be installed. I go to reboot the PC, to see if that brings me any luck, and the computer then won't start as it says that Windows could not be loaded as an unsigned driver has been found (or something along the lines of that). The only solution then is to reinstall Windows 7 Professional 64-bit but I still don't have the Internet working. 

 

I have three devices listed in the 'Other Devices' section of Device Manager, each with a yellow exclamation mark beside them. They are: Ethernet Controller, PCI Simple Communications Controller and SM Bus Controller. I've already tried contacting HP Support, even though I'm in the UK but they hung up on me when I explained the situation to them, so my faith in them has decreased quite a bit. 

 

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as I would like to get this PC up and running as soon as possible!

Hi:

 

First install the chipset driver and reboot.

See if the realtek NIC driver directly from the realtek site works for you.

 

Download and install the 6th one on the list.

See if this gets the PCI simple...

Ah, thank you so very much! I spent days on this and even the other IT guys in the company were stumped on this as well.

Hi:

 

For XP, you need to download and  install the 3rd file on the list for the auto install file.

Hi:

 

Please see if this driver works.

 

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=0&...

 

Here is the link to the XP driver page for your PC.   As you can see, you have the Realtek network controller, so that first driver I posted should have worked and I don't know why it didn't, but maybe this one will.

Hi:

 

If you have installed W7, you now need the first driver on the list...
