Other Devices Drivers Missing After Reinstall of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

HP Recommended
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.

Please download and install the following  Realtek Local Area Network (LAN) Driver first

 

         https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp55001-55500/sp55031.exe

 

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
