Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Laptops can be a pain
The chipset driver should fix the usb issue
If no usb you'd have to put the drivers on a cd and see if that will work

It is unusual if the basic lan driver isn't installed though
But wireless wifi/ touchpad/ chipset or vga ... drivers would need to be manually installed.

There have been a few issues updating for clean installs
Reinstalled twice, but Windows still won't update

Download Drivers and Manuals | Acer Official Site

Use another computer to get the ethernet driver (though it configures automatically when ethernet cable is connected).
Then get the other drivers for your model.

Hi Thrashzone, i haven't tried yet the cd because i don't have one. Can you think of alternative solution beside this?
Hi Arc, i have already download drivers (from another computer and copy it in flasdrive) from manufacturer site however i do not know how can i put it in my laptop since even the usb cannot be read. Also i did try to connect my laptop in ethernet but it can't be detect also.

See if using clean boot makes any difference

Im pretty sure that its atheros but theres two atheros wireless driver in acer's site and i want to be sure which one is because our internet connection is pretty slow haha.

Clean install, no drivers installed

So yeah, there are no drivers installed after i install win7 from a windows 8.1 laptop . I already tried to install LAN realtek driver through using dvd because flashdrive cant be read but sadly when i tried it , it still dont work. Can i just clean install back to win10 then get those driver then just use setup of win7 from the iso files i have burnt in my flasgdrive? Is it possible that the drivers still work? I mean even just the ethernet.

You should do option one of this,

System Information File - Create in Windows

Upload the file it creates, if there are any drivers, we have a fighting chance finding them with that basic hardware info.
