Windows 7: Drivers for Toshiba Satellite C55Dt-A5241

Drivers for Toshiba Satellite C55Dt-A5241

This laptop came factory with Windows 8.
Just wiped the hard drive and installed Windows 7 Ultimate.
Windows operates, but basically the only things that work are the Display(no aero), keyboard, touchpad/mouse, usb 2.0 ports and Disc Drive...

The main two drivers i am looking for are the Dispaly drivers and the Wireless card drivers. I found some on the Toshiba website...but for some reason they do nothing after extracting the file.

I know that these newer notebooks are not recommended to downgrade like this...but some people just dont want 8...plain and simple...or they thought they did and decided after they couldnt take the notebook back that they didnt like it anymore...but luckily they know me who hasnt failed yet to put Windows 7 on a machine...but its mostly due to this site when i get stuck on some difficult tasks...

I have had plenty of luck installing windows 8 drivers on an HP touchsmart that i just recently switched to 7 on...but this one seems to fight me a lil bit more...the HP seemed to fight quite a bit as well...but in the end...i won, haha

It seems that your laptop has AMD Radeon HD 7310 graphics.

Try here for display driver
Download Drivers

For Wireless there is no information about manufacturer on that site can you post hardware IDs from device manager?
