You will most likely need to provide more information so that someone can help you adequately.

What Linux distribution are you using?
What is your HP computer model?
Give the output of lspci.
To do this:
1. Open a console
2. Become root by typing su (sudo if you are on ubuntu) and root
password.
3. Type "lspci". (No quotes obviously)

Doing so will give an idea to the chipset used and other details needed for proper drivers and how you may attain them.
