    Normally installing the chipset drivers will install the additional drivers for the MB built in devices. However, if your laptop also has device such as webcam, you'll need to also install the utility program for webcam so it will install the driver & program for it.

    If the mainboard needs the Intel Management Engine drivers, the installation of the IME drivers could solve the entrys in device manager.

    Not sure, if you wifi card will be supported though:

    Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software


    Your chipset uses inbuilt Windows drivers, but try to install this anyway:

    Intel® Chipset Device Software

    But as for the missing devices I would assume camera and express card are not installed?
