Rolled back to Windows 7 have lost some drivers

I installed Windows 7 and deleted Windows 8 from my HP Desktop 500-130a.  Unfortunately I didn't capture all the drivers I would need upon re-installing.  I need to locate the following drivers;

 

- Bluetooth controller

- SM Bus Controller

- Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller

- Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller

 

Can anyone suggest how I can go about getting these four drivers?  Windows isn't auto-finding them.

 

Cheers,

D

Re: Rolled back to Windows 7 have lost some drivers

Hi:

 

The  AMD chipset driver should install the smbus and usb 3.0 controllers:

 

You want the first first file listed on the webpage.

 

http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/chipset?os=Windows 7 - 64

 

Do you know what model wireless network card your PC has?

 

If not, please look in the device manager, under the Network Adapters category.

 

You install the corresponding bluetooth software and driver for the model wireless card your PC has, which is why I am asking.

 

Once you let me know that info, I will post the link to the W7 BT software and driver you need.

[ Edited ]

Chipset drivers (AMD A75 FCH) are HERE.  Install that first.

Network (ethernet) HERE  Scroll down until you find the Windows 7 driver for the Atheros AR8161L gigabit Ethernet controller

I would think the USB drivers would be part of the chipset, if not let me know more info.

Similar on the bluetooth device, I can see it was included in the PC but there is no real info on what it is.  Maybe a device ID from Device Manager would be more helpful.

 

I see Paul was working on a response same time as me.
