Problem Finding HP Drivers

Having trouble ferreting through the driver monster at HP.
I bought a HP 8460P laptop with Windows 7/Pro. I got an OS disc and a driver disc full of traditional bloatware. I ran the OS disc, which worked fine, but I'm missing a couple of drivers and can't figure
out which ones are correct.

Base System Device PCI\VEN_197B&DEV_2392&SUBSYS_161C103C&REV_30\4&21F27D54&0&01E2

Network Controller PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4238&SUBSYS_11118086&REV_3E\247703FFFF3A539400

ACPI\HPQ0004\3&33FD14CA&0

PCI Simple Communications Controller PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C3A&SUBSYS_161C103C&REV_04 \3&33FD14CA&0&B0

Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller PCI\VEN_1033&DEV_0194&SUBSYS_161C103C&REV_04\FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF00

Can anyone give me a hand with this problem ?

Thank you for the exact driver. There are four chipset drivers and I don't know how to tell the correct one, or for that matter, any of the others.

bej mate run look at this and try a run
Using HW Info
PART A:
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
See this for the rail voltage info
Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications - Power Supplies (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
PART B:
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.
Use PART B:
see my pic

That's usually the free fall sensor. If you can connect to the internet, choose the option to let windows find the driver automatically. I know it's odd, but I have an HP laptop as well, and HP didn't put that driver in the list, but windows was able to find it and install it.

Just curious....Would it be easier to load the driver disc, with all the bloatware, then try and get rid of the bloatware ??
