Windows 7: having trouble downloading /updating

having trouble downloading /updating

I just reformatted recently, wasn't having trouble, just felt it was time. After a fresh install of Windows 7 I get a pop up saying "digital signature required", after trying to install graphics driver. I tried downloading again but I don't think it installed correctly. Looking in the device manager it tells me this: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)
I'm getting this for pretty much everything that requires one (digitally signed drivers)... Also there's a problem is preventing Windows troubleshooter from starting. I can't even update windows, says service is not running...
I'm on a HP Pavilion m6-1045dx Entertainment Notebook
I never had to deal with anything like this on any of my computers /laptops /desktops.. only this HP!

Okay so I think I'm able to download without a hitch by disabling sig auth on startup pressing f8 but without doing so I'd still have problem and I shouldn't have to disable everytime, also I'm still not able to update Windows. Tells me "windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running." If you can help with which services to enable updates that be helpful. Please thanks!

Also I remembered while I was reformatting it gave me a message saying, "Windows setup could not configure windows on this computers hardware." So what I did was shift+fn+f10 and typed in cmd prompt c:\windows\system32\oobe; msoobe to finish install.
