Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Downgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 Ultimate and Lost Drivers

Hello guys, Recently I Downgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 Ultimate, And I lost My Drivers, I Googled and Tried everything Possible, but I couldn't

When I Go to device manager, In other devices I see Ether controller,network controller,PCI simple communications controller,SM bus controller,Universal serial bus controller and Unknown Device all have a yellow Warning icon, basically I'm using my Father's laptop to post this and I cannot use Internet cable or wifi nor USB and my Laptop Doesn't have the CD thing. I'm kinda lost and I have no idea what to do, I tried the ''Scan for hardware changes'' but I get the message ''Device Driver software was not successfully Installed'' and ''no Driver found with an X''

Please Help me with this I tried everything I talked to Microsoft Support and HP Support they said to go to HP Center which I don't have that In my City.

Sorry for my English guy my mother language Is arabic/French and I'm really panicking to fix my Laptop Which Is HP Pavilion.
