What about third party software after reinstalling windows?

Hi. I have a Laptop Asus ROG GL552vw, and I think I need a clean reinstall of windows (it came with windows 7 and was upgraded to 10).
f9 does not work because recovery partition is empty. The support of ASUS suggest me to download the windows 10 tool from Microsoft and the activation key (they gave me the links). Now my question is, what happen with third party software like NVIDIA graphic drivers, Intel graphic Drivers, Asus software that this laptop has?
Thanks.

Windows 10 has built-in drivers for pretty much everything, with the exception of custom hardware and the very latest releases. In those circumstances, you simply download them relevant sites and manually install them; otherwise, you should be good to go without doing anything.
