2.6.32-trunk-amd64 nothing is working

Hi all,
this is my first post.
I just formatted my laptop and installed the weekly testing debian release from my kernel is 2.6.32-trunk-amd64.
nothing is working on my laptop no sound, no wireless and it cant detect any plugged in devices like a usb mass storage or even a cdrom.
I installed module-assistant and then installed linux-headers and linux-kbuild but still nothing has changed.
I will appreciate some advice.
Thanks in advance.

thx guys for the replies.
I waited two days for a reply and then i reformatted my laptop and installed debian with the 2.6.30-2-686 kernel and everything worked out of the box exept the wireless and the desktop effects, the wireless is now fixed by installing the broadcom driver and firmware.
my laptop is acer extensa 4420 with a ATI Radeon Xpress 1250.
