Cannot help much unless you give more information like the make/model of your laptop and explain what 'problems' you've been having. As a general rule you are best to get the drivers for your machine from the manufacturer's website but the procedure will vary slightly between brands, and drivers don't normally go missing unless something else has caused it.

OK, so it appears as if the problem is more than just a missing driver. .dll issues are a separate one and inability to install updates, again, is a separate thing. Is this something that happened suddenly or has it been a gradual deterioration? I honestly don't think this is something you can fix piecemeal unless you do have specific error messages that you can make a note of.

If it has happened suddenly and recently then a System Restore would be the first thing to try. If it has been a gradual thing then unless you want to take it to a technician to look at your best option is to back up your data and then do a repair install of Windows 7. While you system is still sort of useable, it would be a good idea to attempt to create the system recovery disks if you have not already done so.
