I have a HP probook 445G1 NOTEBOOK . It came pre-installed with Ubuntu 12.4 LTS. I removed it and installed Ubuntu 13.10.Now there are no wifi and bluetooth drivers , Help me fix it , I am a total noob to Ubuntu.

I checked the linux page, there is no bluetooth driver there, and I do not know how to install the wifi ones, and without these drivers the hardware won't switch on [I tried pressing the buttons many times], please help me.

If you require any more info. please tell me what and how...

Here's what I received when I did: lspci -nn ; rfkill list

Open a terminal, type lspci -nn ; rkfill list and add the output to the question. –  ignis Nov 23 '13 at 3:39
    
Type rfkill, not rkfill –  ignis Nov 23 '13 at 3:43
    
So, for the wireless: RT3290 there is already a question on AskUbuntu. –  ignis Nov 23 '13 at 3:48
