Japanese NEC laptop drivers

At our work, one of our staff has brought a laptop from japan, I have put windows 7 image on it (x64), I couldn't find any drivers for it.....the Model is NEC LZ750/S, I tried to put drivers for a different NEC laptop on it, but it doesn't take it :-(
I will appreciate a lot, if someone know where to find drivers for this laptop.
thanks.

I would use the factory restore partition to restore the laptop to it's factory state, then look at what hardware and drivers are used. You should then be able to download them from their manufacturer's sites.

The problem with many NEC products is that they are only available in a limited region, The drivers for those products can often also only be downloaded when you are in that region, as the sites are localized and not reachable from other countries.

Another option would be to try to get in touch with NEC support, or the outlet your client bought the PC at, and ask them to send you the drivers.

How can I get in contact with NEC support?  The computer is bought in japan...and restoring it to old OS...how can I get in contact with the manufacturer?  The computer already have the new image....

All Pc's have a recovery partition from which you can restore it to the manufacturer default setup. Just use that to restore it. If you have deleted that partition before backing it up, well that isn't a too good strategy...

You should be able to get in touch with the manufacturer via their website. Or ask your client, he bought the thing and should have some details about such details.

When I put the image on through SCCM, that deleted the boot drive and correct me if I am wrong default setup would have been on the same drive :-(

I have asked the staff to contact the people from where he bought the laptop.

It probably has standard parts for audio, network, video etc.  One thing you can try is to Google the hardware IDs of the problem parts (the flagged ones in device manager).  You may be able to get standard drivers from Realtek or Intel etc.  Another way to get clues about the hardware is to boot a live Linux CD and open a terminal and type "lspci".  This will give you a list of the hardware including the chipset.

The recovery partition is it's own partition on the same disk. So depending on how your imaging works, the partition might still be there. Normally one would always create recovery media from the original system as one of the first tasks. Manufacturer's had their own tools installed for that up to Windows 7, and from Windows 8.x upwards, it is a tool built into the control panel and native to the OS with which you could create a bootable USB recovery stick. That is something that should always be done as one of the first tasks on a new PC, so you can restore it to factory default should the disk fail, or if you want to sell it again later...

This computer had windows 8 home edition on it....so the reason to put the new image (windows 7) was to enable it to connect to network....anyways how should I recover it?

Once you have gotten in touch with NEC, order recovery media from them.
