Windows 7: Reformatted Windows // Can't connect to wifi or via ethernet

Thank you! Some keys still don't work ( brightness, I can work out that myself though) however some do and I believe the Wifi one does.

When I switch off Wifi using Fn + 8 the connections disappear: Screenshot by Lightshot
When I turn on Wifi using Fn + 8 the connections appear: Screenshot by Lightshot

Turning it off and on didn't seem to help it though.

Btw, also a question? Why do you think I got this problem? Is it purely because of the ISO I used?

This one, Download Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO ( 32bit / 64bit ) from Microsoft

I mean, when I did reformat from my original Win 7 disc I had none of these problems. Now I gave disc away to friend, and don't have it at current time I had to use ISO and it seems to be missing stuff.

Or is it because the Toshiba has its own special software on the laptop? Since I did the reformat on desktop it wasn't associated to anything, hence reformating always tricker on laptops? But then again if I used that ISO to reformat my desktop, I would presume it would still be missing these essential drivers.

I'll let you know how I get on tomorrow!

Thanks for all the help though, much appreciated

So reformatted using these ISO, but same problems, same drivers missing..I got to a point I got it yesterday..only the Unkown Device problem on the Intel driver, can't connect through Wifi, but can at least Ethernet. It's a pain, but can be used at least. Any more ideas? I might go up to a repair shop and see what they think. Alongside this I got one more big problem and hopefully you may help

Might as well post this issue here, keep it all together.

So after reformat, aside the network issue, the resolution was bit messed up and still is. In the resolution tab I only have two options...and that wouldn't be problem if the highest possible before refomat was present..but it isn't.. I installed AMD Display Drivers, Intel Display Drivers and Toshiba Resolution from the drivers section on their support site, but that didn't help

How can this be fixed?

Look under other Versions for the Graphics ... There is one Dated 2013 ...

See if we can sort that issue first

Fixed

Actually I just purely forgot about Toshiba site, went onto AMD and they had auto update software. Got that and fixed the issue

Now onto next minor one before Wifi, the function keys, some work (enabling disabling touchpad for example) but for me most important ones, controlling brightness of the screen don't. Any ideas for this? Do I need extra software or can set that manually without using function keys?

Now I installed Function Key from their site, plus Added Value Package, but for example Function Key they seem to be impossible to find ie it only find the download file used for installation...



Now When I press Fn + F2 or F3 the brightness icon comes up, but it doesn't do anything.
