Windows 7: Fresh windows home premium 64bit install, important drivers are gone!

Fresh windows home premium 64bit install, important drivers are gone!

Windows 7 re-install driver recovery failure
Hello everyone. For one reason or another, i decided to re install windows 7 onto my Samsung 7 Chronos. Since I've had no issues in the past with re installing vista on my other machine, i mistakenly thought this would be a walk in the park. Anyway, now after re installing windows, multiple drivers have gone missing, and i cannot connect to the internet (on that machine) to allow windows to find them for me.Please help!

The devices that are missing drivers are the following
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ethernet controller (location PCI bus 3. device 0, function 0 manufacturer unknown)

Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless- N + WiMAX 6150 (location Port_#0003. Hub_#0004

Network Controller ( location PCI bus 2, device 0, function 0)

PCI simple communications Controller (location PCI bus 0, Device 22, function 0)

SM Bus Controller (location PCI bus 0, device 31, function 3)

Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller (location PCI bus 4, device 0, function 0)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(All of these devices have the code 28 error)

Also, My Standard VGA Graphics adapter cannot start (code 10)
I have the recovery disk for windows 7, yet it failed to install these drivers. I have 1 working USB slot, which i can use to carry the drivers over from the computer i am currently using, to the one which is severely crippled at the moment. Please help me restore my computer to full health!

Thank you for your time.

***Also, I'm running windows 7 64bit***

I'd go to Samsung support site with your good PC and locate the Ethernet driver for your particular model. Get it on a USB stick and install it to the PC with the driver problems.

I wouldn't be in a panic just because I had some yellow exclamation points in Device Manager. Instead, I'd investigate what expected functionality is missing.

Then possibly go back to Samsung and look for drivers to fix the missing functionality.
