I just downgraded from win 8 to win 7 on my personal computer. I downloaded the drivers from the manufacturers website as I've done before, but the AMD chipset and the realtek HD audio drivers wont unzip because they're corrupted? Dunno. Tried it several times...so looking at my options...
1. Is it possible that my graphics driver (which worked) also contained my chipset drivers?
2. Can I rely on the cd that came with my computer for the old (2 yrs old) drivers
3. Can I go into my old win 8 hard drive and some how grab the drivers from there?
Do I have any other options?

What is the make and model of the computer or the make and model of the motherboard.

 

In Device Manager, if there are any yellow exclamation marks next to a device, right click the device and select Properties. Under the Details tab select Hardware ID's in the dropdown box. Copy and Paste the first line for each device in our next post.

If there are no yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager then you do not need any drivers. Is the computer running okay?

Great. As far as drivers go, my moto is if it aint broke don't fix it. The only driver I would consider updating would be the graphics driver if there were any improvments for any games I had. Other than that, leave the drivers alone if you do not have a problem.

You can update your AMD chipset drivers from AMD's site.  When you go to update the GPU drivers, there is a tab for optional downloads which may include chipset drivers.  The Realtek drivers should come from your manufacturer or Realtek, but audio drivers rarely change.

Can you get into the BIOS and use your USB devices there?  Have you tried changing USB ports?  Some USB drivers come from the motherboard manufacturer.  AMD 900 series chipsets do not have USB 3.0 built-in so they sometimes require specific USB 3.0 drivers.  Yours does require a separate USB driver to be installed.

okay, long story short, i got my hands on a legacy keyboard, used that to log on, started up teamviewer and used the mouse from there. after trying restore points that didnt work, backups and reinstalling all the drivers again to no avail, i settled with an in place upgrade of win 7 and that did the trick. thanks anyway.
