Windows 7: How do i find and install my old drivers?

How do i find and install my old drivers?

Hello. I recently had a virus so i had to do reinstall windows. So i done a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64bit on my laptop instead of the previous windows 7 home premium 64bit i had. When it completed i had no drivers, such as internet video or sound, so i went on the Samsung website, typed in my laptops model number (RV513 AO1RU) and installed all the drivers listed there. However the sound quality was terrible afterwards, my internet connection was the worst (WiFi) and before i installed ultimate it was much more stable and fast, and my screen resolution will only go up to 1024 x 768 which looks terrible compared to the resolution i had before. I am guessing this has something to do with the drivers, so i went ahead and researched if they were up to date, and apparently not, i couldn't find a website to update them anyway since every single one was asking me to pay, and now im pretty sure that i didn't have these drivers before but that i had better ones, so i am wondering if there is a way to see the drivers i had before the installation of windows 7 ultimate, since these are bringing me terrible quality, i am also sure that its not because they are outdated as my WiFi driver is up to date but i still have horrible connection. This has been annoying me for the past 2 days, and i feel like i should of just kept the virus instead, please can someone help me? I have AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD graphics 1.65GHz and 2gigs of RAM.

All the drivers should be listed on Samsung's support page.

A x64 operating system will require the minimum of 2GB RAM, your running a operating system on it's minimum requirements, install more RAM or switch to a x86 operating system. I'm also sure that you will need a x64 processor too.

Install Service Pack 1:Service Pack 1 has provided many security and stability updates for Windows 7, which would be highly beneficial for your system.

Scan for any malware, without Service Pack 1 and many other Windows Updates, you may have left your system prone to infections:

XBlueRobot is right about the ram, I think you should go with his advice as ram is not to expensive and you will see improvement And the above info.

But why would the ram be affecting this if it was working perfectly fine and even better before on home premium, and it was 64bit then anyway? Surely this is something to do with the drivers, especially Standard VGA Graphics Adapter which i remember i didn't have before.

Have you installed the graphics drivers for your graphics card? The statement within your first post suggested you have installed all the drivers from the Samsung support page.
