    I have recently installed windows 7 32bit hoping I would be able to reinstall the vista drivers because they would be backwards compatible, I was wrong. I cannot locate any windows 7 drivers for my hp m7790e desktop pc. can someone help me install the vista drivers please? others claim to do it but its not working for me. I have already tried changing compatibility to windows vista and it didn't work

    You have it connected to the internet? If so,did you try Windows Update? I really never had a problem using Windows 7 on any of my computers or custom builds. once or twice i did but Windows Update found them.

    I went on HP's Website to look for your computer. Found it and when i clicked on win7 32 bit,no drivers came up.. Just Software-Multimedia.. Did you have vista on it prior?
