    Does anyone have this driver website for my PC?


    I need drivers for one of my family member's PC. I don't have a website for the manufacturer's drivers, but I'll leave details of the PC below.
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________
    Information
    Model: HP G72-C55DX Notebook PC
    Type: Laptop
    OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate with Service Pack 1
    Display: 64-bit Operating System
    Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB, 3.80 GB available
    Processor: Intel Pentium CPU - P6100 @ 2.00GHZ
    Extra info you won't need:
    Pen and Touch: No Pen or Touch input is Available for This Display
    Battery: It was replaced by me on 12/14/2023 due to it not working and I had a back up battery for this moment that worked.

    And yes, I am currently searching myself.

    I also need to say some more important things:

    1. I can't find them in Windows Update.

    2. I don't want to use a program to download the latest drivers because if they have to reinstall Windows, I'll have to repeat that entire process. I want to store them on an external drive to use that drive to get the driver files in Device Manager if they happen to have the need to reinstall Windows.

    3. No search results are useful when I search for "hp g72 c55dx notebook pc drivers" and it doesn't help even if I specify it runs Windows 7.

    You specified it for the G72 model series from HP, and I'm not sure if the drivers are all the same just for all the models in that series, or if they release specific drivers for each machine. But I'll have to see if that is the case, so thanks for your help!

    That HP/Compaq laptop should have a serial number(S/N) and product number(P/N) on it.
    Those numbers will be on the bottom of the case or inside the battery compartment.
    Advise us what they are.

    That laptop appears to have been released in 2010, so HP/Compaq may no longer have downloadable drivers available.
    It also appears it originally came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
    You can read about it HERE.

    I will try downloading the drivers to the laptop, and exporting them all to a CD-ROM via Device Manager if I can do it. I don't know if I can, but I'll try to.

    Yes, it did originally come with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 x64. However, we upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64. The graphics and Internet drivers are doing good, so that's a good sign. I think that all drivers from PC manufacturers for a specific Windows version and either x64 or x86 doesn't matter what edition of that version of Windows is, I only think it applies to a specific OS and graphics type.

    I also see you are using a DELL Optiplex 9020, and I am too!

    lukewt1017 an edition upgrade (ie putting in the DVD while running windows and selecting setup.exe) from one version of 7 to another doesn't require the drivers to be reinstalled usually. A clean install would and a repair install might. I found the drivers on a third party site. Sometimes with older computers that's the only way to get them.
