Download the proper wireless drivers for your laptop from the HP's website. Since your wireless currently doesn't work, you may have to use another computer. Once downloaded, install them on your laptop.

If HP doesn't have drivers for Windows 10, you can use the Windows 7 / 8.x drivers.

Are you using Kaspersky internet security? I recently saw an issue with someone's laptop where once upgraded to W10, Kaspersky didn't play nicely with the wireless and essentially blocked it from running. Ethernet worked fine and uninstalling the software made the wireless work again (although there were claims that an updated version would fix it, which I didn't pursue).
