Hi welcome to the forum. If hp don't have the drivers you might be out of luck. Post the hardware id's someone might be able to find a driver that might work.

Thanks oscer 1. I was directly to hp and they said this notebook was designed only for Windows Xp. I went into Intel itself to find if the graphic card had drivers and they said : No yet.
A friend of my talked to me to get Windows Vista ultimate drivers but Im afraid to do it.

Some times vista driver will work. If you could list the hardware id's we could try searching for a driver.

Try the Vista drivers, they are the same as Windows 7, it won`t hurt anything.

Where are you gonna get Vista drivers for it, if HP doesn`t have them ?

Looks like it only shows XP drivers, so it looks like you`ll be re installing XP.

First Enable hardware auto-updating via Windows Update (Steps 3 and 6) to Check for Updates, install all Important and Optional Updates. After requested reboots, check again until no more Updates are offered.

What drivers are still missing in Device Manager after all Updates are done?

If you'll post back the Hardware Identification for the missing drivers we will help you find them. I've never not been able to find a hardware driver for Win7. At the very worst you'll have to put up with Standard VGA Display driver which doesn't allow Sleep or Hibernate, but may give a decent Screen Resolution. Some XP drivers can be made to install in Compatibility Mode.
