    Windows 10

    Just installed Windows 7 with Windows 10


    Hii,
    i just installed windows 7 in my hp laptop. Before i was running windows 10 on it but it was running too slow so i installed windows 7 thinking I will run 2 OSs .It installed perfectly and I am also able to run 2 OSs but the following drivers are not working :-
    3D Video Controller
    Bluetooth Controller
    Ethernet Controller
    Network Controller
    PCI Simple Communications Controller
    SM Bus Controller
    Universal Series Bus (USB) Controller

    As network and ethernet controller are both not working i am not able to use internet on laptop and also not able to find correct drivers for it and all the drivers are working properly when I switch to Windows 10.
    Please help.
    Thanks in advance

    Is this for the HP 15r014tx in your system specs? If so, you should be able to use your Windows 10 to download the Windows 7 drivers from HP here...

    Software and driver results for:
    HP 15-r014tx Notebook PC
    Available software for the following operating system:

    Thanks Bree,
    Yeah , this is for HP 15r-014tx.
    Can you tell me one more thing that which driver I have to use for USB Controller- the one which comes under Driver-Chipset or the one which comes under Software-Solutions.

    I don't have an HP, I'm just familiar with where each manufacturer provides their driver downloads. The details say the driver-chipset one...
    ...provides the Intel USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver
    ...and the software-solutions...
    ...package provides the driver for the HP 3005 pr USB 3.0 Port Replicator and also provides the video, audio, and network drivers.
    ...so looks like both.

    As stated, on an internet computer go to the HP Drivers link that is provided and select Windows 7 and download the drivers you need from the Device Manager and save them to a USB Flash drive and install them on the troubled computer.
    Download and install the Chipset driver first, this includes the USB 2.0 drivers, also download and install the USB 3..0 driver for the Blue USB 3.0 ports. If you install the Network drivers, you then can access that computer on the internet to download the rest of the drivers directly to that computer.
