I have a HP Omni 200-5320il Desktop PC (All in One).
I run Windows-7 Basic 64 Bit. I did not get this operating system originally. Instead, my machine had DOS installed.
I bought the OS separately and installed it. The machine is more than a year old and everything was fine until now.
Couple of days ago, All of sudden by wifi card driver went off.
I tried to restore the PC to an older date but it did not work.
I cannot see the driver in the Device Manager window.
I went to HP's website and downloaded the driver for wifi card :
However, as I tried installing wireless card driver but, I get following error when installing it on my computer.

If the wireless card has completely disappeared from being listed under the Network Adapters section of the Device Manager, then it is possible the hardware itself has failed.
Is it showing up in the Device manager under a category called Other Devices as a Network Controller?
If so, then it needs a driver installed.
If not, then most likely the hardware has failed and the wireless card needs to be replaced.
You may just want to purchase an external USB network adapter if the latter turns out to be the case.
If you see a Network Controller listed, please let me know and I will link you to a different driver to use.
