Windows 8 Downgrade to 7 Drivers missing

Help I did a clean install windows 7 on a windows 8 preinstalled laptop... Now I can't find the missing drivers on the internet, no USB and no Internet ! Where can I find these, If I could get the internet online I would be greatly helped (as I also burned a CD with a driversearcher on which requires internet) ... Also there is another problem, I cannot go back to the preinstall of windows 8 (I made a backup CD), which is not working... appareantly whole my harddisk is empty .. so basically im stuck with windows 7 now , please help me out!!

Thanks in advance

    Slow down, don't panic. Just go to the manufacturers website, key in your model number, search drivers, and download them all there.

    Alternatively if your happy to wait for windows update, it will eventually find drivers for missing hardware, but sometimes it does not work.

    Manufacturers website is the only way to go, simply choose the operating system for the drivers your looking for, and you should be able to get anything your missing.
