I just installed ubuntu on my laptop yesterday... so i'm like thebiggest noob...

but i partitioned the disk for ubuntu and installed it there, so I'm dual booting with Ubuntu and XP On Ubuntu,

it automatically installed the wireless driver for me..
then I switched back to XP, and it doesnt have the wireless adapter anymore

There is a switch that I can turn on/off the wireless reciever, and usually, even if I dont have the driver installed, it turns blue when it's on.

But now it's only showing red... I tried re-installing the driver on XP, and uninstalled it on Ubuntu but nothing seems to work.

I really need wireless on my XP, and I'm afraid to do system restore,cuz then it might mess my partition that i did yesterday

Does anyone have a clue what happened to my wireless driver???

Thanks in advance

ps. wireless didnt even work on Ubuntu

I'm on an HP Pavillion laptop

that's weird... i don't think that installing ubuntu should have done anything to your xp wireless.

did you try to manually reinstally the driver in xp? what kinda card is it?

The first step is to tell us what kind of wireless card do you have. To know this type on the terminal

I am not sure if I am understanding you correctly, do you have a wireless adapter in your computer?. According to your lspci results you don't seem to have one. And like chalewa said, Ubuntu doesn't uninstall anything from Windows so it should be mere coincidence.
