Windows Vista to Windows 7 upgrade

I have just updated a HP Laptop running windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Pro and it seems that HP offer no support for Win7 on this model. I am having problems with the LAN driver (Nvidia nForce Networking controller) it shows as working in Device Manager but will not allow Internet access with an error message " No fixed IP address" I have checked the NVidia website with no success.It shows as working correctly in "Device Manager" I also cant find a win7 driver for the webcam when I try to download the Vista one it tells me "no webcam installed"?
