I gave you the link to find any drivers which Windows Updates doesn't provide. And to change out drivers wholesale is an old school XP method that doesn't take into account that Win7 is the first driver-complete OS which provides the drivers it wants via the installer or optional Windows Updates.

I gave you the link to find the drivers for your netbook which are not found by Windows Updates . If you are unable to download the link but insist on using an outdated practice, don't brag about it to people who are interested in how Win7 works best.

If you were not able to find the driver by googling the device make/model for a Win7 driver, then I'd only use the driver finder (DriverMax is best) to find the single missing driver, not change a bunch of drivers that Win7 may not want.

Did you try installing the chipset from the HP link I gave you? It should have the USB drivers in it.

For next time and so others will now: If an element of the chipset needs a driver and installing the chipset doesn't satisfy it:

Make note of where the chipset driver is unzipped to. Then from Device Manager>Missing Device, click on Driver tab>Update Driver>Browse and browse to that location for the driver.
