Does HP's/Compaq's website have downloads for Windows 7 or have you tried vista drivers?

Try 7 drivers before vista's

HP is probably NOT going to develop windows 7 drivers for your laptop. HP usually stops supporting its products that are no longer being manufactured shortly after warranties expire. Fortunately MS did a pretty good job and most of your hardware will work after you install windows 7. You might be able to get some of the missing drivers for your hardware by checking the HP support site for other laptops with the same hardware.. try checking a higher model# under the NX series for windows 7 drivers, or even some of the Presario drivers, as a lot of HP hardware is interchangeable between models.. so much so that sometimes you can see the exact same configuration in 3 or 4 different shells

You could download it to the one you're using now, and transfer it over.
