Windows 7 not recognizing hardware

After I have installed windows 7 onto my laptop, it doesnt recognize things like my scroll bar on my touch pad, I dont think it recognizes my chipset because some games I have tried to play lately say I dont even have a chipset... What is causing this? Does Windows 7 not configure to your computer when you install it? Im confused....

Thanks in advance

Look for splats - yellow exclamation marks.

Provide a screenshot or report them.
