Greetings
I m using hp envy dv4-5205tx running windows 8(came with it when i bought the laptop)

I m having trouble running games in windows 8 and prefer running windows 7

So, before doing anything, i tried to find all the drivers needed for my laptop in the official hp site, and I saw that only drivers for windows 8 available for my model since its a new model.

I tried to find the drivers manually, but scared that it might be incompatible with my laptop model. But i seriously want to reformat to windows 7.


Hope you guys will give me some solution to overcome my situation.


Thanks

If the machine was not sold with Windows 7, then drivers for Windows 7 were most likely never written. If not available on the HP site, they may not be found anywhere, though you could try the manufacturer of each component. Some compionents branded as HP may not list any other manufacturer, or the HP drivers may be modified versions and the manufacturer's won't work, either.

"Format" means to create a file system. You can install Windows 7, but you cannot "format" to it. You will need a new copy of Windows 7 that has a new or unused license.

A big problem with a lot of the brand new computers now is there arent even windows 7 drivers available for some of them and some wont even let you go back to windows 7 even if there is drivers listed if you wanted to because theres something in the bios that makes it impossible to do so.

What's the product number(P/N) and model number(M/N) that's on the sticker?

----------------------------------------------------------------

All the HP ENVY dv4 series laptops at the HP support site only list Windows 8(64-bit) drivers.

The dv4-5205tx isn't in the list.
