Have you tried installing an older driver ( like from vista) in compatibility mode? they usually will work.

Have you gone to LG's site and googled it?

Hi,

I found this: Removed link, Not a good site

Don't know the site and don't know if they will work, I would scan the file with a virus scanner first, just to be sure.

I can not find any other drivers quickly, normally you can use just generic windows drivers.
Can't you do a system restore to before you deleted them?

i have no restore points and about generic windows drivers, i guess ur referring to the bundled drivers with the OS, well they don't seem to be working as well
