Default Missing drive Please help

I just purchased a lenovo ideapad Z570 used. It came with a crappy virus filled version of windows 7 so i had to re-install from the disk i used for my gaming computer. But ever since doing that my driver for controlling the fan functions is gone. The volume up/down buttons work but the fan function button doesn't. Ive tried 2 different driver programs (driver genius and driver detective) but they didnt install it. Please help me because i would really love to have that feature back on my computer.

Did you check on Lenovo's website? Maybe here
Also it's been my experience that those driver programs tend to be filled with malware...

I agree with the above post. Get your drivers directly from Lenova. Since you reinstalled the operating system from a different CD, it would not have included drivers specific to your laptop. Laptops are picky that way.
