Windows 7: Reinstalled Windows 7, lost all drivers!

Reinstalled Windows 7, lost all drivers!

Hi I bought this roughly a year ago

PB Tech - NBKLEN1252535B : LENOVO IdeaPad G570 Sandy Bridge i5-2410M 2.3GHz 8GB (4Gx2) DDR3 640GB 15.6" ATI HD6370M 1G DEDICATED VGA BT2.1 2.0MP HD Webcam 802.11n DVDRW HDMI Win7 Home Premium 64bit 6Cell

I re-installed Windows 7 Home Premium yesterday and discovered I lost all my drivers and device management/disk management/computer manage etc shows no manufacturers name for each driver needed.

Could someone tell me which drivers I need for my laptop to be running as good or as close to new as possible by what's just listed on the website?

Note- I don't even have ethernet card driver!

Thanks for anyone who can help and have a good day, enjoy

Just wondering on what DVD did you use to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit? If it is a Lenovo supplied DVD or a Recovery Partition then the needed Drivers should be all there.

If Lenovo did not give you a Drivers' Disk when you purchased the Computer then you should ask Lenovo to furnish you with one now.

Most of the the troubles after reinstallation stem for want of Drivers. I think it should be made mandatory upon the vendor to furnish a Drivers' disk when a computer is purchased.
