Samsung Notebook Device Drivers

by ddubcak / January 8, 2013 6:24 PM PST

Hi I have a Samsung Notebook QX-411-W01US purchased from BestBuy and I am having difficulties finding the drivers that I need. It recently crashed on me and would not restore so I used the Samsung recovery disk to restore it. Everything seemed fine but I cannot connect to the internet.
My device manager says that the following drivers are not installed:
3D Video Controller
Ethernet Controller
Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N + WiMAX6150
Network Controller
PCI Simple Communications Controller
SM Bus Controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller

Also there are no programs installed on it as there were when I bought it but my hard drive is saying that I have used 186gb.

If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

Clarification Request
Such should be on the restore media.

If the restore media fails it could mean the laptop crash was a sign that the laptop needed repairs and not an OS/driver issue.

Post this request in the CNET Samsung forum too at

Thanks Bob, I'm hoping its not a hardware issue. It blue screened after my notebook died during startup. I haven't tried installing any of the drivers just yet because I cannot find the right ones. I will also post in the Samsung forum.

The QX-411- etc, does not match any model number listed on their support page.
Flip the book over and look for a different result. Most there , seem to start with a different letter combination than Q.
