You need to run windows update or go to the manufacturer`s website for any missing drivers. The driver exe files will not be in the windows.old folder unless you had them stored there.

As Vista has asked, post the exact model of your pc so we can find the drivers for you.

Posting a shot of device manager for us would be a big help.

Glad you solved it. Did you disable it yourself? I'm not aware of any procedure that automatically disables it
