running into a few problems with drivers in device manager

hello everyone i recently bought a HP pavilion g6 laptop which came with windows 8 installed, which i really didnt like. so i changed back to windows 7 proffessional x86

Could anyone help me or post appropriate links for the following drivers that i cant seem to locate myself anywhere:

Ethernet Controller
PCI Device
SM Bus Controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB Controller ( i think this may be for the USB 3.0 because two of my USB ports dont work)
