Windows 7: Need help with system restore

Need help with system restore

A friend of mine gave me this dell inspiron all in one to restore. He didn't have any CD and it was password locked. The previous owners at his business left it behind and didn't want it back. So I downloaded a copy of windows 7, burned it onto a dvd, and restored the PC. But the end result is this completely unusable version of windows 7. It won't recognize the correct screen resolution, and it wont connect to the internet via ethernet. I pretty much can't do anything about it.

Any ideas?

How are you going to activate Windows after you get it stabilized?

Did you download Windows from Digital River? Or from some other source?

Allocated System Restore space holds far fewer restore points now
I have 8gb of space allocated to System Restore, all monitoring my C partition only. This space is always at least 85-90% used according to the System Protection screen. In the past I have had at least 15 restore points to choose from after ticking "show more restore points." But today I went to...
