    guys i have formatted my friends laptop which is HP Pavillion 15-ab100nx and i found the drivers section on their website which is this (http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers...b100-Notebook-PC-series/8499302/model/8942437).
    the problem is i tried downloading and installing the Lan driver and Wireless lan driver. i tried all the given drivers there and the installer says that it is not compatible with my OS. i am aware of that.
    im using windows 7 and my really point here is is there a way where i can download this drivers or do i have to switch it back to windows 10?
    just an idea is enough for me guys hope you can help me.

(PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_5229&SUBSYS_80B5103C) im sure this is a lan driver but i dont know that exactly do i need to download for windows 7

    I tend to use sites like http://pcidatabase.com in cases like this using the vendor id as 10EC and the device id as 5229.

    According to that site this is a realtek card reader.

    They don't work because they're different operating systems. If you can get a network driver installed, Windows Update will take care of a good bit of them. The rest can be found on manufacturer sites.
