    You didn't provide any information about your laptop.
    What is the make and full model number?

    There are no Windows 7 drivers, just Windows 8 and 10. You can try it and see what happens. Also, you would have to purchase a Windows 7 key to install with, no downgrade rights.

    Before dong so, please create an image backup of your current Windows 10 installation using Macrium Reflect to an external USB 3 hard drive ($60US). Then if things go wrong you can restore the image and be bback to Windows 10 in a half hour or less.

    May I ask why you want to go back to Windows 7? Windows 10 is a better OS and with some tweaking can be made to look and feel a lot like Windows 7.

    Win 7

    Windows 10 is a much more secure OS than Windows 7 . Do you have a Windows 7 key ? If yes , do image backup first and then using Windows 10 Rollback Tool . You can also refer to this
