Coming to your problem, are these stock drivers (that install by default with windows) or manually installed/updated drivers? Right click on each driver with the yellow exclamation and update the driver, choose search automatically so that it goes online and looks up for updated drivers. That is by far the easiest way.

The best way though is to go to the OEM's site (if this is an OEM computer) or the manufacturer's website, locate the drivers for your devices and download them and install them. E.g. Realtek's site if you have a realtek audio card, broadcomm if thats what your network card is etc.

There are other tricks in the driver install business, first try out the above.
I tried this actually before posting with no luck. Its a more serious issue underlying something that manages the device manager. Anyone have any idea what it can be?

Hello Bangulo,

Try going here to download the drivers that you need HP Support & Drivers | United Kingdom

If that does not work for you and you have a windows dvd try doing a repair install Repair Install


If you do not have a DVD you can use the HP recovery manager to reset windows.


If none of the above work you may want to take the Laptop to a dealer to get it fixed.

IMPORTANT remember to make backups before you start

I hope this helps

I tried the suggested drivers with no luck , I think a repair install would fix it. But what is causing the issue thats what i like to know. I mean repair install is a quick fix but what in wondows could be causing such a thing

Without seeing your laptop it is very difficult to answer,
An overzealous cleanup program?
A Virus?
The wrong files accidently deleted by the user?
I can only guess

I just hope you get it up and running again
