Windows 7: Laptop missing Network Drivers and Adapter

Laptop missing Network Drivers and Adapter

Hello, I recently booted up my laptop and discovered that it wasn't able to identify any wi-fi networks, so I attempted to System Restore and came to error 0x08007005. I attempted to patch it with the error fix, but it failed.

I did more searching and believed I was missing a Lan Driver, but upon installation I got an error message reading that there is no Network Adapter identified, which leaves me here.

I have used msinfo32.exe to indeed identify that there is currently no Network Adapter identified, as well as a fair amount of problem devices, and at this point I don't know where to turn to find more information, please help, and let me know if there is any relevant information I can elaborate with:

Hi Myotonia,
can hardly read your screenshot.
But you need the Realtek one thats in the list, Ethernet
and the intel centrino one for your Wifi.

Go to your comps model homepage and download them to a USB.
Then open device manager update but point it to the USB.

Hello, I'm sorry for the screenshot quality, that'll be fixed as soon as possible.

I recognized two of the drivers that you told me I needed but I can only assume that the ethernet driver you meant was the bluetooth personal area network?

on msinfo32 it shows no current network adapter, and the problem devices say they don't work because windows cant load the drivers required, will this get fixed when I update the drivers?

I also found the webpage for my current laptop model but I cant seem to find downloads for files that mirror the names of the necessary drivers: Series 3 15.6? Notebook (NP300E5A-A05US ) | Samsung Notebooks

You can find all the drivers at one place in the CD that came with your laptop.
However, Direct download links are a as follows-
1.Wireless LAN,INTEL (Driver) ver. - Windows 7(64bit) (MULTI LANGUAGE,68.47 MB)
2.Lan (Driver) ver. 7.44.421.2011 - Windows 7(32bit,64bit) (MULTI LANGUAGE,5.07 MB)
Since your Bluetooth PAN isn't working so run this too-
3.Bluetooth,INTEL (Driver) ver. - Windows 7(32bit,64bit) (MULTI LANGUAGE,136.36 MB)
Recommended but not compulsorily required-
Easy Support Center (Software) ver. - Windows 7(32bit,64bit) (MULTI LANGUAGE,44.67 MB)
Easy Settings (Software) ver. - Windows 7(32bit,64bit) (MULTI LANGUAGE,124.06 MB)
