Windows 7: drivers installation sequence

Windows 7 home premium 64-bit
drivers installation sequence

Hi Experts,

My Laptop Specs:
Toshiba Satellite L750 X5317
Part No. PSK2YG - 0E8026
Intel Core i5 2430 M processor 2.4 GHz
Memory: 4GB DDR3
[COLOR=#3485bd !important][COLOR=#3485BD ! important]Windows [COLOR=#3485BD ! important]7 [/COLOR][COLOR=#3485BD ! important]Home [/COLOR][COLOR=#3485BD ! important]Premium[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] 64 bit Operating [COLOR=#3485BD ! important][COLOR=#3485BD ! important]System (pre-loaded)[/COLOR][/COLOR]

I bought this laptop 2 days ago and as it came with pre-loaded Windows 7 home premium 32-bit, i converted it to 64-bit and then recovered everything. I have a few simple questions to ask:

1. As my laptop came with preloaded OS, do I still need to install additional drivers for it ?

2. I had taken a look at toshiba india website and for my model, they have given a lot of drivers which can be installed, but I doubt if they are for pre-loaded or clean installation of windows 7 home premium 64-bit ?

3. If I do need to install the drivers, then what is the sequence I need to follow as I have read in many threads that sequential installation of drivers is essential for proper functioning of all features. I would be extremely grateful if any of you experts could provide me the sequence of drivers to be installed on my laptop.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Hi Podichetty and Welcome to SevenForums

I'm not an expert by any means but haveing do this many times here's what works. 1. install OS, unhooked from internet, install the chipset driver for your motherboard, 2. video driver, 3. sound driver, 4. network driver and any other drivers for other hardware you have. Try to have all the drivers you will need dll'd from manufacter's web site before you start any installation. Hope this helps Good Luck.
