>>  VEN_8086&DEV_9C22  <<  this is the chipset, what motherboard do you have?

did you use windows updzates>oiptional updates?  that finds many drivers

you can try slimdrivers free also : https://www.slimwareutilities.com/slimdrivers.php

nzrubin,

I think this all drivers are of motherboard. Now you could see that now most of the manufacuturers product only the drivers that are designated to run fully functional only on specified OS. i mean fully functional. So if you find also a driver compatiable you would not be able to utilize the device functionality fully. Hence, i would recommend to switch back to W8 only.

By the way what is the problem with W8 that u reverted back to W7.

concur use the recovery partition or buy recovery media and reinstall it back to factory Windows 8/8.1 if you can't live without the start menu add the 3rd party tool classic shell
