Install driver without any connectivity

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Recently I moved from windows 10 to  windows 7 for my old laptop,

But neither USB ports nor wifi is working because drivers are not installed

How am I suppose to install drivers without any connectivity options.

Bad decision since Microsoft pulled the plug on Windows 7. 

 

Try ethernet for the drivers.

Even i downgraded to windows 7 recently, Download drivermax (from the internet, hope you have wifi drivers) and scan for driver updates, the free version only allows you to download one driver at a time, so download one at a time or you can buy the software for just $5 or $8 and it will update all at one.

Hope it helps.

If that doesn't work then go to device manager and right click on your harware and click update, then look for updated driver software on the internet.

That's why it's a good idea to think ahead.

 

Now you'll have to find a way to get the drivers onto a USB to do it, like using another computer or getting a friend to do it for you. And that's if the USB ports work, if they need drivers too, then you're looking at having to get a CD/DVD drive to put the drivers on.

 

TBH I wouldn't bother, and just re-install win 10 or go linux.
