Hi @linv,

 

Thank you for your query.

 

I understand that your notebook came with Windows 10 preinstalled and you have chosen to install Windows 7.  You have updated the drivers but the performance is buggy. What is the exact difficulty you are having?

HP has not tested Windows 7 on your notebook and therefore does not provide the drivers.  Computer manufacturer's can  and do alter some drivers to perform correctly with the system.  Therefore drivers obtained from the manufacturer of the individual part may or may not work as expected.  The Windows 7 installation disk, is it a registered retail copy or one that was downloaded from the web? Have you run the Windows troubleshooter? Have you done all your Windows updates? Have you downloaded and run the  HP Support Assistant?  Have you checked for viruses and malware? MS Malicious Software Removal Tool. Here  are two  link that may also help. HP PCs - Computer Is Slow (Windows 10) and HP Products - Common Solutions for Windows 10.

Please let me know the outcome.
