I have installed Windows 8, and now I cannot find drivers for this OS.
My notebook works clumsily without drivers and I am even enable use it properly.
Could anyone help me to find Windows 8 drivers? Where is it possible to download them? Do they even exist?

You're very welcome.
Yes, you should be able to use the W7 64-bit drivers from the HP 255 G5 notebook for most of the devices, and for the graphics, you can use the W7 driver from AMD.
Do not use any of the BIOS or firmware files from the 255 G5 notebook.
Graphics: Select the W7 64-bit driver from the list.

One other thing regarding Windows 7...
The Wi-Fi card may not work even with the driver installed.
If that happens to you, you will have to remove the card and mask a couple of pins.

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.
