Reinstalled windows. No drivers

I have an Asus U36SD

Last night I reinstalled windows for a clean install on windows disk
After finishing and loading up windows I have no drivers so no connection to any peripherals
I can't install them from the web because all Internet drivers are gone and I can't install from USB
Because the USB driver is gone.

Please help!! What do I do

Follow the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Put your network adapter driver form the Asus Support Downloads webpage on CD or stick to install it to connect to network.

Then immediately enable Device Installation Settings Option 3, run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates to completion.

If wireless driver gives problems installing then use the ethernet cable which will probably load its own driver if you've enabled Option 3 in link above, otherwise import it from same page.

Windows Updates should provide most all of the drivers. After required reboots, go right back to Check for Updates again until there are no more. You can then import any still missing in Device Manager from the same Asus webpage.

windows 7 home 64bit

Hi there .. Welcome to Seven Forums .. You Installed Windows from Disc . Does that no longer work ? .. Have you tried all your USB ports ? Do you have a flash drive you could try .. Have you tried connecting by earth net ? ... You say you have an Asus Laptop . Why does it say different in your specs ?

That's because that's his other computer. How do I explain it further? There is no correlation between the two, except that that's the PC he's using to get on SevenForums.
