    If you installed/reinstalled the operating system, the desktop/notebook system utility and the chipset drivers need to be installed first or the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

     

    You should be able to start with the desktop/notebook system utility and the chipset drivers and install from there. Everything should start working.
