From what is missing, the first thing to download is the motherboard chipset drivers. Although Windows 7 will install many drivers, some are not the best drivers. The HP supplied drivers are the preferred. For example, Windows will install the generic, basic function, sound driver "HD Audio Codec" but the best and full function driver is the HP supplied sound driver.
I tried all of the drivers non of them worked... they all say. Your computer does not meet the minimum req. I think you got the wrong laptop.

I saw the wrong PC and deleted the post. However, Win 7/Win 8 drivers, in almost all cases are the same. I'm using Win 7 drivers from my motherboard vendor for Win 8 and they all work OK, on two different PC's with different motherboard vendors.

However, some PC vendors have made their driver installs so they will only install on what they support. Since HP does not support Win7 on this PC you are stuck with whatever you can find.

Your nVidia card won't kick in until it's required, the laptop will use integrated graphics up until that point.
