Hi I just formated my laptop to windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I bought the laptop with windows 10, so now it has windows 7.
The problem im facing is i can not find any drivers for my laptop for a windows 7 64 bit operating system.

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!
Sorry to be the bearer of bad newes, but you should not have downgraded your Win10 laptop to Win7.
Laptops especially contain specialized hardware for which, for full functionality, specialized drivers are required -- and these come ONLY from the OEM, in this case, HP. Your PC came preinstalled with Windows 10. If you remove or overwrite the original Win10 on your PC with Win 7, you are going to encounter serious problems as there are no HP Win7 drivers for the new hardware that comes with new machines.
MS supplies drivers that provide only basic functionality. This means that some of the hardware functionality is likely NOT to work if you force a downgrade. That includes functions like the touchpad, WiFi, switchable graphics, USB ports -- to name the functions commonly reported here.
That said, someone else might come along and point you to Win7 drivers for other model PCs that that will work with yours -- but if that does not happen, you will then be stuck with a PC with limited functionality as HP is not writing Win7 drivers for their new Win10 PCs.

Hi, @Marcio1 :
You should be able to use all of the W7 x64 drivers and software from the base model 15z-p000 for your model, except the BIOS and firmware files.
In addition to the above drivers, you will also need to install the AMD Chipset drivers and restart the PC.
That package will install the smbus and usb3 controllers.
You want the first file listed on the webpage.

Thank you for the feed back but i have tried all drivers that Paul_Tikkanen advised, having this said i assume that the only solution now is to format my pc again and upgrad to the latest windows OS.Please can you provide me with a link that i can download winodws 10 as my hp laptop did not come with a copy.

You can make your own plain W10 installation media by using the media creation tool at the link below.
You will have the choice of making a bootable USB installation flash drive, or save an ISO file that you can burn to a DVD using the burn ISO file on your DVD burning program.
The software will work with the W10 product key in your notebook's BIOS, and will activate once you are connected to the internet.
