    Trying to restore drivers for Acer 5253

    The story so far:

    I have an Acer Aspire 5253-BZ661. (A laptop.)
    Some time ago I accepted Microsoft's free upgrade to windows 10. Now the hard drive is starting to fail, so I have replaced the drive and decided to start over again with Windows 7.
    I have an image copy of the original hard drive (and the actual hard drive) with windows 10 on it. I also backed up all the drivers using a method shared on TenForums.

    When i tried to do the bulk restore method, it didn't work in windows 7. It tried to install each driver but they all failed.
    I managed to find drivers for the Radeon online, and those seem to be working. I managed to manually update the few drivers that were giving errors, except for two: One is the wired ethernet drivers, the other is the driver for the USB hard drive I have all the drivers on, (although it does seem to function anyway.)
    I'm also noticing a few various things are not working quite as I recall. When I adjust the volume via the keyboard or hit caplock or numlock, the laptop used to display these onto the screen. That no longer happens. Also I think the speaker won't get as loud as they used to.

    Altogether I have my suspicion that while most of the drivers are working, they are not using the proper driver to give them their proper performance. And I may be missing other software that Acer had intended for this hardware to deliver the optimal performance.

    I tried looking online but I can't find the drivers nor software package from Acer.
    I don't know why I can't just use the drivers I already had that I was using in windows 10. (I honestly doubt any of them were updated for windows 10 considering the age of this computer.)

    At this point I'm just looking for whatever help anyone can give me. If they know where I can find the drivers I need, perfect. If someone can help me get the driver I need from the drivrs I already backed up, that works too.
