So yeah, I resorted to reinstalling my W7HP64x OS and now I'm in quite the pickle; Because I have no drivers whatsoever or anything of the sort, I can't connect my network or do any updating that would enable this. How am I supposed to find the necessary adapters or yet alone the adapters I am supposed to acquire?

And yeah, I'm a bit of a noob in this department.
Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired.

Oh, I might've located a way to revert it, my old C: seems to have remained in a sub-location so I should be able to locate the necessary drivers, no?

ideally you shall not require any drivers, but if needed, you shall be able to find in 'support & drivers' section for your laptop official site.

The reason why I am/was in need of drivers was because I was getting the error that goes something like "You have no network adapter driver installed, please follow these steps.." into "Windows was unable to fix the problem, here are a few useless links for you". When I looked at my device manager I noticed that I had absolutely no network related materials and my WLAN box would not do anything by itself.

Well that's a pickle. I seeked out the Hardware ID of my Ethreal controller and seeked it from web to no avail, extracted my old files back to where they were (=> into usage) and used a program that scanned my everythingness and installed correspondent drivers. Still the same error T_T.

you need model, not id. Also we don't even know the details to Google for you.
Laptop or pc
Internal Ethernet or external
Model of motherboard
Model of Ethernet

PC, Asrock Z68 Pro3 is the motherboard,

internal ethernet:
Hardware IDs: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_81681849&REV_06
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_81681849
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&CC_020000
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&CC_0200
Physical Device Object name: \Device\NTPNP_PCI0018
Display name: Ethernet Controller
If those do not suffice, idk what's up with it. The display name probably has something to do with it not having any drivers => not being read

It's also worth mentioning that I have other devices also "with no drivers": PCI Simple Communications Controller, SM Bus Controller, Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller and Video Controller.

Who knows. I myself had no idea I'd have no way of connecting to the internet to fix the drivers after reinstalling the OS or better yet - not being able to do it after trying to reinstall the drivers.

E* Exact error messages that it gives me:

Install a driver for your network adapter

Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. If you have a network adapter, you will need to re-install the driver.

Additional information: the modem's maintenace site shows that the Ethernet is correctly installed and is sending/receiving data at a normal speed

E* However, "Connected equipment" tab shows no PCs being in their connection list, so the cable does send data but it "gets stuck"

Would have been the next fix after the physical CD, thanks for pointing out that motherboard usually provides the fixes for that kind of things.
