Ethernet and WiFi isn't working

HP Recommended
sleekbook
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

hello I recently "downgraded" from Windows 10 to Windows 8 then to Ubuntu but now I went to Windows 7. When I launched in about 3/4 drivers were there. My wifi WiFi and Ethernet drivers weren't installed. On every other OS every driver was there but now this happened. The missing drivers are Ethernet Controller, Network Controller, PCI simple communication Controller, SM bus controller, Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller, and 2 unknown devices.

My model of laptop is a m6-k025dx If anyone can help that would be a huge thanks 

Alex

Hi:

 

These should be the W7 drivers you need...

 

First install the smbus controller driver and restart the PC.

 

This package contains the Intel Chipset Installation Utility. This utility enables the operating system to show the correct name for the installed Intel hardware in the Microsoft Windows Device Manager. This package is provided for supported computer models running a supported operating system.

Ethernet Controller:  Download, unzip and run the setup application from the W7 driver file at the link below.

Network Controller:   Select the W7 64 bit driver on the left side of the page.

You will also need the Bluetooth driver for the model wifi adapter your notebook has.

PCI simple communication Controller:

 

This package provides the Intel Management Engine Components Driver for supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp79001-79500/sp79059.exe

 

Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller:

 

This package contains the Intel USB 3.0 Driver for Intel 8 and U/Y Series Products for supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

 

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp95001-95500/sp95220.exe

 

For the two unknown devices, I would need you to post the hardware ID's for them so I can figure out what drivers they need.

 

Use this guide for how to find the hardware ID for a device...
