Solved Replaced Hard drive. lost freeware/drivers

Specs: Windows 7 64 bit, 4 gigs, intel i5
I have an ASUS N61JQ-X1, and it's an amazing laptop. Unfortunately, the hard drive recently fizzled out on me just a few months out of warranty, so I had to get it replaced. I got the computer back today and it's running very quickly and smoothly, incredibly so.

The problem:
- Microphone doesn't work at all - no microphone drivers, I assume?
- The laptop has a row of buttons (visible on the left here) which include a quick power-setting changer, a mute button, volume up, volume down, and play/pause. These buttons no longer do anything at all.
- My webcam was upside down on skype.

In general, I've lost everything "ASUS-y" about my computer. It's nice to be rid of some of the bloatware, but there are some that I used all the time, especially the mute/volume keys, as well as the quick power settings (ASUS has things like "entertainment," "high performance," "quiet office," "battery saving," etc. as opposed to the three Windows 7 defaults. The microphone/camera obviously need fixed.

Is there any way to do these?

✔ Best Answer
So then you never created the restore disks from the hidden partition on the hard drive?

You can download the drivers from the Asustek site linked below. If you want the laptop to be in factory state, you may need to order restore disks from Asustek.
