When I formatted, I had to actually go to Recovery console and type format c:

Long story short, after reinstalling windows, most of my hardware is currently unusable because they have no drivers installed. Can anyone help me out? The laptop's specifications are located here:

The computer is currently unable to go online as the ethernet ports are inactive (they need drivers)

someone please help. So far I've managed to get my Ethernet controller and Audio controller working properly, but the others are causing a lot of frustration.

Thanks. I'll see if I find more here. My major problem in this is that my PC no longer recognizes the model of the devices that have no drivers, which makes finding them a real pain.

Edit: That second link looks like the cure-all, actually. I'll run it and get back to you.

.net framework is here if you need it

http://www.microsoft...;DisplayLang=en

You then need to go to Microsoft Update for a service pack, and then again for a hotfix
