Where can I get Windows 7 64 bit drivers for my HP Pavilion 15-e007tx Notebook PC? The HP website only lists drivers for Windows 8 64 bit.
Universal Serial (USB) Controller
I found a driver for the Network Adapter, but I had to install it with Test Mode turned on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Usually the drivers listed for Windows 8 should work on windows 7 installation too.
Alternatively you can download the SWSetup folder from the C:\ drive on your notebook which should have the drivers installed on your notebook.
Make it easier for other people to find solutions, by marking my answer “Accept as Solution” if it solves your problem.

I'm not having much luck with the Windows 8 drivers.
The Ralink RT3290 WiFi driver will only install with Windows 7 in test mode, otherwise it says the driver is not properly signed.
The Realtek Local Area Network (LAN) Driver crashes with the message "FindFile failed." The LAN driver is the one that I really need to get working.
These show up in Device Manager under Other Devices and say that no drivers are installed:
SM Bus Controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller

Thank you for your inquiry. I am sending you a link to "Obtaining Software and Drivers" click here.
This should aid you in getting the correct drivers.
I hope this helps.

No, that didn't help much. The only driver that it got was for Bluetooth.
This is was just too frustrating, so I bought a Sony, no problems running Windows 7.
Microsoft supports Windows 7, why can't HP?
So I have a very expensive paperweight sitting here. I guess I give it away to someone who doesn't mind running that awful Windows 8.
No more HP for me. And reading many forums, there are many other users that feel the same way as me.
Support your users HP!
