HEREI have a HP Pavilion dv6t-6000 and I got a brand new hard drive and installing windows 8 unlimited 64 bit. I have installed it and had no drivers or nothing on the laptop. Made a sperate burned CD with Ralink and Intel wifi drivers so I could get on the internet and download the rest of the drivers from HP from this link HERE. Anyway I just want to make sure I'm doing everything right and what not. I saved and renamed all the drivers I installed to make sure I no what they were and such. Just installed around 100 windows updates including IE9 and a service pack. It may just be me but it seems like when I drag around a window or something similair the PC just seems like its a bit laggy. My main thing is that I want this to be right and all like the way it was when I got it. Thanks for all your future help.

A Question -

You titled this "Reinstalling Windows 7", but it seems that you actually want to finish "installing Windows 8" ??

Which one is the problem. Removing Windows 8, or do you want to finish installing Windows 8 and run Windows 7 at the same time ??

Thank You -

I didn;t mean to type windows 8, i w=ment to type windows 7. All I have is win 7 64 bit ultimate on here. It seems like I got everything installed and working. Although I did have a hotspot software on here that I could turn on and it turns the internet connection into wifi. I believe it was a intel thing. Also I had a bluetooth and wifi manger thing that came with this computer when I got it to. Not sure If there on that link i provided or not. The one error I'm seeing in device manager is under other devices its location is microsfot acpi-compliant system (code 28), hardware ID ACPI-HPQ004. What is this and how do I get this driver?

Did you install the chipset driver?

And for future reference, you could easily have downloaded all the drivers in advanced and saved them to a usb drive of some sort.

sp55095 - Intel Chipset Installation Utility and Driver I installed that, and my usb port driver was not installed when I reinstalled windows so I had to load them on a CD. They work now though after I got the 3.0 controller driver. I still have that unkown device though.

Don't worry about it as long as everything works okay. You can "UNINSTALL" the device in device manager and see if it reappears after a reboot.
