Here are all the drivers you need, except for the wireless (which I will need more info from you on that)...
SMBus and USB3: Download and install the AMD chipset drivers from the link below and restart the PC.
You want the first file listed on the webpage.
Graphics: Install the 1st driver listed on the webpage and restart the PC.
Audio: Accept the agreement, download and install the 1st driver on the list.
This package provides the Realtek Local Area Network (LAN) Driverthat enables the Realtek Network Interface Card (NIC) Chip insupported notebook models that are running a supported operatingsystem.
This package contains the driver that enables the Realtek Card Reader in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system. The card reader enables users to read from or write to supported removable storage cards, which are typically used in digital cameras, digital music players, and cellular phones.
PCI Encryption/Decription Controller: Note: You will have to manually install this driver...
This package provides AMD PSP Driver for supported desktop models that are running a supported operating system.
To manually install the driver...
Go to the device manager and click on the PCI E/D Controller needing drivers. Click on the driver tab. Click on Update Driver.
Select the Browse my computer for driver software option and browse to the driver folder that was created when you ran the file.
That folder will be located in C:\SWSetup\spsp66974.
Make sure the Include Subfolders box is checked and the driver should install. Then reboot.
Wireless: Please post the hardware ID for the device you see listed in the device manager as a Network Controller.
That is the wireless card that needs the driver.
To find the hardware ID, click on the Network Controller device, and then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window.
Now you will see a Property drop down list, and it will be set to Device Description.
Drop down on that list, and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's).
Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

You're very welcome.
Your notebook does not come with built in bluetooth hardware, so you are not missing the bluetooth drivers.
If you let me know what else you are missing, I will try to find them for you.

You can use software such as "DriverPack Solution" and the link gives you the actual iso for it, this program is very neat beacuse it scans your whole system for all components. Heres a download link. (Link)
