HP Pavilion g7 1019wm
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I inherited an HP g7 laptop (1019wm) from a friend.  I installed a new hard drive and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.  All is fine except in device manager it shows 'other devices' with drivers missing.

Ethernet Controller

Network Controller

PCI Device

PCI Simple Communications Controller

 

I know Windows 7 is no longer supported, but is there somewhere I can download these drivers to fix this problem? 

Any advice is much appreciated.

It allows you to connect to internet to run Windows Updates (I don't know you can run it or not) or use other drivers from
