    Downgrading from W8 to W7 in HP g7 pavillion laptop.

    I managed to install windows 7 on a HP Pavilion g7-2293nr Notebook PC that came with W8 installed originally. I cannot access the internet or any USB connectors. I have been attempting to install drivers using the DVD drive, I tried about 25 HP drivers - non of them work. Where do find the right drivers???

    You might NOT be able to do that -- simply because laptops use specialized hardware which often requires specialized drivers -- and not every Win8 laptop is downgradeable to Win7. You should check the HP Support forums -- the HP reps there have access to driver downloads that are not available to the public: Contact HP Customer Support | HP® Customer Support
