I recently downgraded my HP 15-ba018wm to Windows 7 from Windows 10 and I am struggling to find drivers to make the machine run smoothly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

First install the AMD chipset drivers and restart the PC. Those will install the smbus and usb controllers. You want the first file listed on the webpage.
Graphics: You have the choice of installing the full driver package, or the minimum installation package (graphics driver only).
Audio: Accept the agreement. Download and install the 2nd driver on the list.
Ethernet: Download, unzip and run the setup application from the 2nd file listed at the link below.
Card reader: Download, unzip and run the setup application from the 1st file listed at the link below...
This package provides the driver that enables the Synaptics TouchPad in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. The driver enables general touchpad functionality (for example double-tap and scroll) and provides a user interface.
This package contains the driver installation package for the Realtek RTL8723BE/RTL8188EE wireless LAN Controller in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

Thank you so much for such a full response! Life saver. The only real issue that I am currently having is that the graphics drivers are not working in conjuction with the aero transparency effects after placing them on the machine.
I have tried to uninstall the generic vga graphics drivers and reinstall the drivers from your link, however, for some reason they seem to only be putting on HDMI audio drivers with the Relive install program provided by AMD.

You're very welcome.
See if this HP graphics driver works...First uninstall the one you tried from AMD, restart the PC and then install this one.
This package provides the AMD High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver and Catalyst Control Center for supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. For notebooks with switchable graphics modes, this package includes drivers for both graphics processing units (GPUs). Switchable graphics enable users to switch between a power-saving graphics mode (normally used under battery power) and a high-performance graphics mode. If high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) video output is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver.
