Did you set windows to download drivers before checking for them and downloading them from the "Optional" page?: Device Installation Settings

Check again for updates.

Failing that, go back to the website I gave you earlier and download all the drivers, minus the utilities.
I did that...trying it again....and will download if failsss...

Mcwindows,

No hassle at all, I do this in my free time (for fun o.0)

Are you talking about in windows update or the website? In windows update, its all of them, and make sure you also get all the important ones too. Perhaps it won't let you download some optional ones until your get all the important ones downloaded, who knows.

On the website, if you're going for wireless, I'll admit that its tricky as they seem to list 3 completely different drivers. Try the Intel one, and if it doesn't work, uninstall it and go for another. Laptops list 3 from what I've seen, perhaps onboard, adapter card, and generic? You got me why there is three...

All the other drivers apart from the wireless drivers should be straight forward and easier to download (just download them all except for utilities; it should tell you what it is to the left of the driver or utility's name). Any further questions, by all means, ask.

You're very welcome, I am glad it is working for you. Too bad windows doesn't set it up where drivers are automatically updated upon installation (With an option to disable it).

Let us know if you ever come across another problem, we'll see if we can't find a solution for ya. Take care.
