My Inspiron N5110 will not recognize Ethernet controller, SM Bus and PCI

Hello!

I have a problem with my laptop Inspiron N5110 with Win 7 64bit. After reinstalling my operating system, I have installed all the drivers available on the website, it still doesn't recognize the following components:

- Ethernet controller (R292450)

- PCI Simple Communications Controller

- SM Bus Controller, as it can bee seen in the printscreen below.

I have tried installing the drivers in the order presented on the site and still nothing. I need the Ethernet to connect to the internet using DSL cable and the other to connect the printer using USB cable.

Can anyone help me please!

The website lists the drivers in the incorrect order:

You need to follow the driver installation order here:

Check out the video at the bottom. Its important drivers extract and install and not only extract.

Thank you for your input. I will try this. But if the drivers only extract and not install after, what should I do?

Thanks!
