Windows 7: Fresh install of windows, cant install any drivers.

W7 64bit
Fresh install of windows, cant install any drivers.

Hey guys!
So I've reinstalled windows 7 64bit home prem on my PC but now it wont install the drivers. I get an error (I'll call it error1) saying that the drivers arent the right version (32/64bit) but Ive tried installing both.

ERROR1 pictre (taken on laptop, note "Things I've noticed")

Im downloading the drivers on my laptop because my PC cant connect to the internet without the LAN drivers. Tried all the drivers apart from the RAID ones because I dont use RAID and the latest Nvidia driver wont install either. <Drivers

Things I've done-
*Re-installed windows (5 times now)
*Formatted C/main drive 4 times.
*Tried extracting the drivers onto my USB and copying them across; files get deleted in the process (why?????)
*Installing programs that arent drivers; perfectly fine.
*Removed 2nd HDD.
*Deleted all partitions on main HDD and formatted.
*Tried installing latest AMD chipset drivers; error1

Things I've noticed-
*I can extract the drivers on my laptop but once I try to extract them on my PC I cant extract them anymore on the laptop (get the error1 message)
*I've installed uTorrent, worked.

Theres 2 things that pop into my head; either I have to download the drivers on my PC (cant do because I cant connect to the net on it), I need the original drivers that came on the disc (which I've lost) or my storage driver has a virus or something not allowing me to install the drivers.

Thats all I've gotten so far, any ideas guys?
