Windows 7: Installed windows 7 on a laptop that used to have 8.1 need drivers

Installed windows 7 on a laptop that used to have 8.1 need drivers

I have the hp pavilion 17-049wm. It first had 8.1 but i got rid of it and now i have 7.

I first had to get the lan and wlan drivers and they are working. But i am sure that there are lots more drivers i need to download.

For example Realtek High Definition audio driver.

Is there a free program that will automatically see what i need and download it?

I went to hp's website and all there drivers were for windows 8

On all the desktops that i build the drivers come on the mobo cd but laptops dont come with any cd's.

I dont know what mobo i have in this laptop all i know is it is hp lol

Thanks

Hi there ... Any Drivers that are missing after your Install of Windows 7 ... You should run Windows updates after that you should try the Drivers from the HP website .. If they do not work at least you can get the Version of the Driver you need there ... Then go to in your case Realtek High Definition audio driver... Go to the Manufactures website and try the Drivers there ...

I see officialy only windows 8 and 8.1 drivers are available for this laptop.
So finally no more support for windows 7
Folks who want a full blown PC OS on their new powerful computers are left out.

Ok that helped some

I got the drivers left down to 3 or 4

Can i use this usb 3.0 driver for my machine?

Drivers, Software and Firmware for HP ProBook 6475b Notebook PC - HP Support Center

It is a differant laptop but it is windows 7.

Also i need some video drivers. I have the amd A10 and cpu-z says it is amd radeon 8650g if that helps.

I downloaded catalyst control center but i dont think it did anything.

Also Windows update does NOT give me any drivers. I have set it up to look for drivers but it cant find any. I have also gone into device manager and tried updating them that way and it dosent work eather.

Thanks for your help

Edit:Hey gulls777 i went ahead and used a lot of the windows 8 drivers on windows 7. Some worked for me.

The other devices that device manager is worried about is
SM Bus Controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller
Unkown device

I am pretty sure usb prob is usb 3.0 related

Unknow device might be my webcam

Dont know what sm controller is

Thanks

I need the video driver.

I have the A10-5750m APU

The video portion of it is ATI Radeon HD 8650g

I need that video driver. I have installed the catalyst control center but it wont install the driver. I go in device manager and it says "standard vga graphics adapter."

I NEED to get rid of that and get the ati driver in there.

Thanks for replies
