Desperate! Need drivers for Windows 7 after Dual Booting!

Hello guys,
I'm so desperate right now. I have dual booted Windows 7 from a USB stick with Windows 8 pre-installed. The problem is that I can't get networking or internet, or USB device drivers + Graphics Adapter. I am not sure if my manufacturer supports Windows 7 drivers, but here is my PC with the specs from QVC, where I ordered it:

Where can I find Windows 7 drivers so I can get networking and also my Graphics Adapter?

Thanks in advance,
SuperGamerDude

  1. your link didnt work.

    If you have the specific HP model number that is where to start.

    Do you really need Windows 7? 8 works fine on two of my PCs.

    Sorry about that! The base model # is HP Pavilion g6-2291nr. Thanks.
  3. Got to Control Panel, Device Manager and get the drivers from the same locations as Windows 7.

    I have tried updating the device drivers, to no avail. An error message pops up saying Windows could not find the device drivers.

    Well, I just wanted to have both OS's on my system in case something wasn't compatible, and also because I LOVE Windows 7.
