Windows 7: Reinstalled windows missing 4 drivers

Reinstalled windows missing 4 drivers

Hi, my Samsung Notebook 300E5A wouldn't boot, and no recovery options were working, and I hadn't made a recovery disk, so I reinstalled Windows 7 from a USB drive.

Now 4 drivers are missing:

Ethernet controller
Network controller
PCI Simple Communications controller
SM Bus Controller.

How do I go about acquiring or installing these?

Thanks for your help,

Andrew

Looks like your Card Reader is not working ... Download the HECI Driver ... Do you have the WWAN Y3400 Samsung Data Card Modem Driver Installed ? ...

Thanks again. 'Do you have the WWAN Y3400 Samsung Data Card Modem Driver Installed ? ...'

Would that be listed in Device Manager? I can't see it there, if that is the right place to look. I will install the HECI driver now. By the way, the screen resolution is low - it looks like it does in Safe Mode.

With HECI installed, it is just showing the Network Controller as missing. Thanks again, Andrew

The model code as shown on the back of the laptop is NP300E5A-A04DX. I am wondering if I should be downloading from this page which is for A01: NP300E5AI - DOWNLOADS | SUPPORT | SAMSUNG ? This doesn't have the WWAN driver listed. I bought it from Curry's so am also wondering if I need the Wireless LAN (Dixon) driver, which is listed there?

This must be the right page: SAMSUNG

Is it OK to try drivers from this page? I was wondering if I needed the VGA Dixons one? But that's a complete guess, as I don't know what I am doing, really..

No, that's my no.1 problem. So presumably that would be the Wireless LAN one, and I guess I should go for the Dixon's one.
