Windows 7: Hey folks, uninstalled soft/hardware, then...

Hey folks, uninstalled soft/hardware, then...

Boom, onboard sound and LAN fail. As in won't even appear in device manager. The things I uninstalled and physically removed were one of two IDE (I know, shoot me) optical drives, the software included a bunch of uninstalls at once before I shut it off and removed the drive. Uninstalled iTunes, Quicktime, Bonjour, TMPGEnc, and one other one I can't really remember...

MoBo = MSI 870A-G54.

Already tried reinstalling the drivers, but it just says the hardware isn't detected.

Two minor extra problems: DNS errors but ONLY when wired to a router (cable internet ISP), also my Creative X-Fi platinum w/ drivebay CANNOT hot plug, every time I try to the system will sometimes lock but almost every time renders the sound unusable and muted until I restart. ****ing Creative.
