Missing drivers for network adapter?

I reinstalled windows on my laptop after it got wiped and now it won't connect to the internet at all. When i troubleshoot the problem it says:
"Install a driver for your network adapter
Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. If you have a network adapter, you will need to re-install the driver."
"Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter."

After troubleshooting the hardware, the problems were:

"unknown device doesn't have a driver
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller doesn't have a driver
PCI Device desn't have a driver
Network Controller doesn't have a driver
SM Bus Controller doesn't have a driver
PCI Simple Communications Controller doesn't have a driver
uknown device doesn't have a driver
Hardware changes might not have been detected"
I'm not sure what I should do from this point since I can't connect to the internet. I have an HP Pavilion dv7 that runs Windows 7 64bit. Please help!

Hi! Type device manager in start and right click your troubled drivers, hit properties.
click details, and on the drop down list select device instance path
you should get a string looking kinda like this
HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_14F1&DEV_5051&SUBSYS_10250292&REV_1000\4&6F8187B&0&0001
Copy and paste them here, or somehow post it here.
Preferably lets get your network drivers 1st. As well, do you have access to another internet connected computer? and portable storage?

Hi Alex ..... You need to download the chipset Driver That is for the SM Bus Controller .... If you have any USB 3 ports you will need that Driver too .... Also the Network Controller .... When you have done that .... Any missing Drivers ask Windows to update them .....
