How to get Microsoft Windows 7 drivers and how to install the drivers
The best way to get Microsoft Windows 7 drivers is to go to HP website and search with the product number, to get the relevant drivers for the computer. The drivers include Audio, Chipset, Graphics, Keyboard, Mouse and input devices, Network, Storage, Firmware, Operating System- Enhancements and QFEs, Multimedia, Software - Solutions and Utility-Tools. You need to click on the link for each of these relevant drivers and when it asks you go run or save, you could either run the driver and install it or save it to the hard disk and then locate and run the relevant driver later. Any which way, the procedure is very simple as you need to locate the relevant driver from the website and run it on the computer. Once the driver is installed, depending on the kind of driver it may ask you to restart the computer. Hence make sure that you do restart the computer so that all the components are installed properly.
Things to be taken care
There are certain things to be taken care of, while you are trying to install all the relevant drivers for your computer. The first difficulty is that if you do not have the proper Internet connection or if any interruption occurs during the installation, the drivers would not get installed properly. It is always advisable to install the drivers directly from the HP website, since you will not get the compatible drivers anywhere else from the Internet, as you would from the HP website. This ensures that the computer work as smooth as it must. Another very important factor is that you also have an option to downgrade the driver to an earlier version, if that is needed at all, to ensure proper compatibility with all the installed hardware and the existing operating system. Always ensure that the power adapter is connected to the computer, while you install the drivers to the computer. Once you install the drivers, you could also do a bios update on the computer to refresh all the hardware settings. That would do more good to your computer than you can ever imagine.
If at all you are unable to download all the required drivers from the Internet due to some connectivity issue, you could always do it using another method. If you have a friend who has the proper Internet connection, you could save all the drivers from his computer to your memory device or external hard disk and then open the hard disk folder from your computer to download and run the relevant driver on your computer. This is a simple method that you can adopt, if you do not have proper Internet connectivity on your computer. If none of the drivers are available and the Internet does not work, and you do not have an option to copy the drivers from another computer as well, the only option would be to do a complete system recovery on your computer. This will ensure that all the drivers are again loaded to your computer and refresh it with all the necessary applications as well.
