how do i find win 7 drivers for new computer?

Hello!
I got a computer from a friend and she asked me if I could install windows 7 on her computer (she had win 8 and she didn`t like it) so i did it, but because the computer is new the official site of the company that made this computer didn`t put out the drivers for win 7 but only for win 8.
can anyone help me find the drivers for win 7?
thanks in advance

In most cases (all that I've seen) the Win 7/Win 8 use the same drivers.

Go to the manufacturers site for those, i.e. Nvidia or ATI, Realtek etc. Or as suggested, hit Windows Update.

For the USB, are there any motherboard chipset drivers listed on the HP site? The chipset drivers should help with the USB issue.

Find out the actual motherboard used in that system, I'd get CPU-Z from cpuid.com for that purpose.

Then search for all the drivers for that motherboard, smaller hoops then model of the PC.

Solved a few issues in the past with that info.

Need to run it on the PC in question and look at Mainboard Tab for the details.

Those titans of canned PCs might switch motherboards in the middle of a run of systems so they themselves don't tend to provide that info. 8)
