Man, seems like you give us a little more important information on each post...back to drivers plus Windows functionality. Start with the drivers.

The WIndows 7 upgrade is not a factory recovery disk. If you got the Upgrade Kit from your manufacturer, there should be an apps/drivers disk with it to find this software. This is tech supported by the manufacturer. Otherwise such a disk may have come with the laptop.

If you have no such disks then as stated they should be available as software downloads on your manufacturer's support downloads page for your model.

As a last resort, call your manufacturer's tech support to ask how to get these apps that you like.

They may tell you that they don't support upgrades to Windows 7, if you did it yourself without their kit.

If so, politely hang up and call back inquiring as though you need to replace them in Vista.

If they tell you you must do a full factory recovery, tell them you just did one and the apps are not showing up. They may yield the individual app that way.

What is your problem exactly? Certain functions stopped working which are provided by factory software as described in OP? Tell us exactly what features stopped working.
