New Windows 7 Installation & No Drivers

HP Recommended
HP Envy 15
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I very recently did a fresh install of Windows 7 on my HP Envy 15t ( http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-envy---15t%C2%A0laptop-t8g40av-1?jumpid=ba_r329_hhocse&aoid=44661&0... ) (All of my PC specs are the most basic ones available for that model), however I am now unable to acquire drivers for anything.  I have no Ethernet or Wireless driver, so I can't connect to the internet, and I have no USB drivers, so I can't plug in a USB drive to move driver setups to the Envy.

 

I am at a dead end I believe, because I cannot think of a reasonable way to get drivers into the new Windows 7 install.

>Envy connected to Ethernet, No Ethernet controller driver

>No Wireless controller driver

>USB drive connected to Envy, No USB drivers

 

The only peculiar thing is that my copy of my Windows 7 installation was booted from my USB drive. So, surely my computer recognized that there was a USB driver somewhere?

 

There were no other OS's installed on my laptop at the time of my Windows 7 installation.

 

Thank you for whatever help I can get.

Hi,

 

It is very new, designed for Windows 10. Please try the following LAN driver:

Hope you can get to internet to run Windows updates to get other drivers

 

Regards.

As previously stated, I have no way of getting the driver to the Envy.

 

>No Ethernet controller (meaning no internet connection by ethernet)

>No wireless controller

>No USB controller (meaning no moving a driver from the USB drive to the Envy)

Thank you for locating the driver I needed! I do believe I have figured out how to fix the problem now on my own, and will update the thread with my own solution as soon as I am confident it works.

Well, after several weeks trying to fix my own problem, I've given up on it. Will be moving my laptop back to Windows 10 and forgetting about Windows 7.

 

Could not find a working solution for my case.
