HP Notebook - 15-ay026na (ENERGY STAR)
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have a windows 7 laptop (originally shipped with windows 10) product 15-ay026na. Ever since I downgraded the laptop to windows 7 I have had to reinstall all the windows 7 drivers for my laptop. This has worked fine, the only driver I am unable to find or get working is a USB driver. I have scowered HPs driver website and have downloaded almost all the drivers but none of them got my USB issue sorted, (https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-15-ay000-notebook-pc-series/10862300/model/11896...).

It powers the device however it is unrecognised. Device manager also spits up an unrecognised driver error under Universal Serial Bus. I've been trying to figure this out for ages if anyone could provide a USB driver for windows 7 64 bit that could work I would be very grateful. Thanks, Fraser.
