Try this to remove any left over drivers . You may have to unplug the wifi card ,and then plug it back in to get the drivers to install.Do you know which wifi adapter it has ?

The wireless card should be accessible from a cover on the bottom on those, I believe. It will tell you exactly what card it is usually.

The 1150 is the only one they show for those. We had some and used that driver with no problems. We had some D610 that had different cards, but they could be aftermarket or replacement parts.

Someone on neowin posted about www.ma-config.com

I actually had never heard about that site before I read about it on neowin, but I've used it about 5 times since and it has found almost every driver I was missing.
