What drivers to install??

I just did a clean install of windows 7 pro 64-bit on a HP Envy 4t-1000. I am a little confused when I go to the HP driver site. There are many to choose from. For instance, there are 5 chipset drivers. I could use a little help on this. Not to mention I need to learn how to distinguish between the many choices. How do I do it? Here is the link for the drivers on HPs website:

Hi Copiman,
As its an OEM go to HPs website and for the product, type in the serial no; its probobly in the battery compartment, that will take you to the right drivers.

I can go to the site (link in post #1). My problem is that under some areas there are many drivers. How would one know which to install? Some have only one driver and some have up to 7 drivers. Go to the link in post#1 and you will see what I'm talking about. Very confusing.

Yep, if any site has a driver scanner, install and use it, that is if you`re online.

You can just read the description of each driver, get the latest one possible.

I mean, down here there are literally hundreds and thousands of blinking, beeping, and flashing lights, blinking and beeping and flashing - they're *flashing* and they're *beeping*. I can't stand it anymore! They're *blinking* and *beeping* and *flashing*! Why doesn't somebody pull the plug!
