OK, I was afraid of that, I still think you need the chipset first to have your other hardware noticed.

Try this chipset driver, after it installs, restart and check the realtek driver again,

You probably got ripped off on that ebay deal but we'll get to that later.

Update, it finally works now!!!!!! yay. Somehow I forgot to download the wireless LAN file. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that WIFI was finally working on my laptop. After that, I installed the next file you mentioned (REALTEK) and after installing, the ethernet cable started working as well. I did install the last one which is the intel ChipSet Device Driver? What's that for? It installed and I had to restart my computer but I couldn't find it after logging in back again.

One more thing I noticed is that my monitor is shown as Generic PnP Monitor, is there a driver for that as well? And again, thank you so much, you're the best and you truly made me really happy.

Thanks a bunch. Is there a tool I can use to update all drivers at once?

I don't recommend driver programs or tools, they usually do more harm than good.

The chipset is the main set of drivers, they are motherboard drivers basically.

You're welcome.

You need a graphics driver. This Intel one should work,

For some reason i can't 7zip the 'nfo' file but I will attach it anyways, let me know if you rather have me upload the text file instead if this doesn't work. I'm downloading Intel HD graphics driver in the meantime. Will HDMI work on my laptop after installing the Intel HD Graphics driver? I noticed there's also a driver called Intel NVIDIA, do I need to install that one or ignore? And even though these downloads are for windows 8.1, it will be okay since im using windows 7 right? Sorry for so many questions.

Update: Monitors seems to be under PnP still, is that normal?

Cool, everything looks good, there is one thing missing but it's a drive guard for a spinner to park the heads, since you have an SSD we can forget about that.

That NFO uploaded fine, actually we have those as allowed files so it could have been uploaded without zipping.

There's an HDMI driver in the Intel driver I linked for you. Don't worry about the Nvidia, you only show the Intel for your system.

Looking at that report I see you already installed that too,

Code:
Name	Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
PNP Device ID	PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0A16&SUBSYS_227E103C&REV_0B\3&11583659&0&10
Adapter Type	Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, Intel Corporation compatible
Adapter Description	Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
Adapter RAM	(2,080,374,784) bytes
Installed Drivers	igdumdim64.dll,igd10iumd64.dll,igd10iumd64.dll,igdumdim32,igd10iumd32,igd10iumd32
Driver Version	10.18.10.3574
INF File	oem16.inf (iHSWM_w7 section)
Compared to what it was,

Code:
Name	Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
PNP Device ID	PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0A16&SUBSYS_227E103C&REV_0B\3&11583659&0&10
Adapter Type	Not Available, (Standard display types) compatible
Adapter Description	Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
Adapter RAM	Not Available
Installed Drivers	Not Available
Driver Version	6.1.7600.16385
INF File	display.inf (vga section)
I wouldn't worry about the monitor being PnP.

Right now you have a bunch of updates to catch up on.

The drivers that worked for you are also good for Win 7 so don't worry about them saying they are for windows 8/8.1.

I checked the installer for that one and it has a Win 7 folder in it.

I didn't check the one above it so I'd just go with that one if you do.
