    gpu doesn't show in device manager; network card driver install fail


    well, my brother's hdd in his laptop was going bad, it kept failing to boot. so i replaced it with another one. when i turned the laptop back on it started installing all the drivers for his hardware (windows was already installed on the 2nd hdd) and prompted me to reboot. after i did windows failed to start several times. i re-installed windows from scratch, and now his graphics card isn't showing up in device manager and windows cant find a driver for the network or ethernet card.

    his specs:
    gateway
    windows 7 professional x64
    ati mobility radeon hd 4250
    broadcom bcm943225hm (network card)
    amd phenom II x4 n9790
    4gb ddr3
