Need Windows 7 USB drivers

I had to remove Windows 8 from my new HP Pavilion (Model p7-1414) and installl Windows 7 Home Premium.  I found all the drivers I needed except for some USB drivers.  The USB keyboard does not work (although the USB mouse does work).  In Device Manager, SM Bus Controller and USB Controller are listed under Other Devices with a yellow question mark next to them.  Can someone please direct me to what I need?  Thanks.

Re: Need Windows 7 USB drivers

Here are the specs for your HP Pavilion p7-1414 Desktop Computer. According to the specs, this model uses an AMD A75 FCH chipset. Drivers for this and many other AMD chipsets can be found on AMD's support pages HERE.

Re: Need Windows 7 USB drivers

I have to do the same process and am having trouble finding the drivers. Can you please help direct me to the place where you found them. I have been searching for them awhile. Of course the ethernet driver is gone after the reload of windows 7  so i'm playing download, transfer, load and test game. Not to much fun. Thanks in advance

Hello Frank98335,

 

I see that you are looking for drivers for your computer as well. I would like to help but I need more information.

 

Can you provide your model and product number? Here is a link showing how to find that information.

It's a HP P7-1414PC looks to be the exact same issue as above. I used the chipset driver and USB ports now work but no ethernet driver no wireless driver etc..

Re: Need Windows 7 USB drivers

Frank89335,

 

Here are the specs for your HP Pavilion p7-1414 Desktop Computer. The following drivers should do the trick;

 

AMD Chipset Drivers (SMBus, USB 3.0, etc.)

AMD Catalyst Display Driver (Graphics)

Qualcomm Atheros Customer Portal (Wired LAN) - (select "AR816X Family Drivers", "WIN AR816X Windows WHQL Driver", you will need to extract/decompress the .RAR file with WinRAR or the like)

Ralink RT2860/RT2760/RT2890/RT2790/RT306X/RT309X/RT35X2/RT539X Driver (Wireless LAN)

IDT 92HD73E HD Audio should be in Microsoft Windows Updates... if please post back.

 

Please read HP forum thread Pavilion p7-1421 Windows 7 Drivers for more information about downgrading to Windows 7 on your computer. This post refers to the same motherboard as yours.

 

Please send KUDOs

Re: Need Windows 7 USB drivers

[ Edited ]

I followed the link to AMD you provided.  My problem is I get to the website and the choices on the dropdown list do not match exactly.

 

I just purchased a HP ENVY 700-147c Desktop PC and I want to load Windows 7 Pro 64bit. 

 

MB is MS-7778 (JasmineR), not found on MSI's site.

 

On the AMD page, the first dropdown has several choices that could apply...the one I chose was Motherboard Integrated Graphics.  Then I could go with Radeon Integrated HD Series, but I get HD 4200 & HD 3300 on the next choice, but the specs say it is HD 8670D.  Or, I can choose AMD 7-Series Chipsets?  Is that what a Chipset: AMD A75 FCH is, a "7-Series"?

 

Thanks

Never mind, the guesses I made at which drivers to download appear to have been correct.

Re: Need Windows 7 USB drivers

Hi, I'm currently installing Windows 7 on my new HP envy 15-j119so. everything is working fine except my USB-Ports (not one single port works since they're all USB 3.0) and I'm currently having a hard time finding drivers to solve this problem. Will the drivers for the USB ports be included in windows update? Or do i simply have to install them manually? And in that case, where can i find drivers for windows 7?
