emachines D525 wireless drivers

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've just re-installed windows 7 on my sisters laptop and I'm having trouble finding the correct wireless drivers. I've tried ones from emachines website, no luck.

The laptop originally had a BSOD problem, where it would shut off at the login screen.

Anyone know if I could get the drivers out of the windows.old folder?

So, do the drivers on the eMachines website not work? Do they just fail during the install, or what?

It appears they install successfully, no errors given. But I reboot and nothing seems to have happened. Still show "No connection are available"

http://support.emachines.com/em/driver/nb/d525.html

Also, the only drivers available are labeled for Vista and XP. But the laptop came with Windows 7.

Did it have Windows 7 32 and did you install 64, or vice versa?

In general, Vista drivers should work perfectly for 7.

Get the vista Driver , save it to desktop,

then do u manual driver install.

Where you go to Device manager > then update driver software > then Browse Computer > and tell it to look in the folder you saved to desktop.

Therea a good chance it will take the nessary driver files

Nope, it's 32-bit.

I'll try that in a second.

Edit: I just looked through device manager and it says I have drivers for network adapters are working properly and are up to date. It also has a tab for "other devices" and in it, it says "network controller" and has no drivers for it. I just to manually install them back it didn't accept them.

Did you try what Bigo suggested? That should work.

One more thing that I just thought of. Did you make sure that 1) the wireless card is enabled in the BIOS and 2) that you don't have the wireless hardware switch set to off?

Trust me, I've done the latter one. And for whatever reason, reinstalling Windows doesn't make it want to turn back on...rolleyes.gif

=\ Checking the Bios one right now.
The wireless hardware switch is a button on this laptop, and pressing it does absolutely nothing from what I can tell.

Edit: Bios doesn't seem to have an option for the wireless card.

If the button appears to do nothing, you may have to install some hotkey application from eMachines. On my Dell Studio Laptop, in order to get bluetooth "turned on" I had to install the Dell QuickKey application, which enabled the button (actually an Fn secondary function), which let me enable bluetooth, and then I could install the drivers.

I couldn't find one. =\
