Could it be this?

If you can find the correct driver on that site, you can d/l the exe and extract the drivers with 7-zip.

Alternatively, you could use SDI.

I finally found my answer in one of the threads here. Installation was a breeze after that (although I had to add SP1 to the install disks myself at that time).
The Win 7 SP1 doesn't have the USB3.X drivers. USB 3.0 came much after SP1 release.
You may be referring to Win 8, 8.1 or 10.

Can't believe this, but when I shut the PC down last night, Windows applied about 5000 updates - this morning, my display drivers are working perfectly I also ran SP71386.exe, which I found using your hardware ID method. Nothing appeared to happen when I ran it - weird - but I guess maybe that was it... sigh... just the touchpad and Bluetooth to fix now. The HP touchpad driver, SP65086.exe, appears to be corrupt on their ftp site - about half of it downloads, says it's finished, but reports corruption when you try to install it. If anybody knows where I can get these last two drivers, I'll be a happy man...

So close... then Windows installed a Synaptics touchpad update, and the machine has frozen. Rebooting, Safe Mode etc don't help - as soon as the sign on screen appears, it locks. Keyboard, ctrl alt del, nothing responds. Is there anything I can do, other than putting the laptop through the window?y

Sorry guys - it's a long time since I did this kind of work. I managed to get it up and running using the System Restore... I'd forgotten you could get that option at startup.

Thanks Roy - my fault, I deliberately allowed it to install this one - I thought it would be better than the one I had

Not sure what you mean by the W10 key... where is it exactly?

Thanks

Hi Hogweed,

The Key is on MS's server, you dont actually see or need it.

When you first used it your comp MS created a device ID, based on the components in your comp.
(great big 1 line string)
So unless you change the motherboard you can go back to 10 anytime you like.

Thanks for the explanation - I had a vague idea it was something like that!

I'd sooner eat worms than return to 10 though...

Now that you have the Win 7 Pro SP1 iso, download the updates, so if if you decide to start over you will have everything already on your computer MS releases SP2 for Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums

Since M$ began to install tracking features I only install security only updates. (My WU is set to disabled. I run WU manually and decide what to install).
If you want to shield from this features have a look at this small program
