I understand that you are angry and frustrated, computers are expensive and in this economy money is hard to come by. Allow me to assure you the members of this forum can correct the problems that you are having.
I am sure that I cannot fix everything, now, but just give us time with a few simple adjustments, you will enjoying the best OS, ever made.
First type device manager in the search (by start button). Then look for (I think yellow) warnings that drivers are not up to date. If you find any go to the web site and get the most current. If as you say they are not available, use Vista or you could use XP in compatibility mode.
Follow the instructions given at this forum. Questions or problems?, just come back and let us know. I can assure you the help that you will get here is more valuable than the paid services you can find elsewhere. All we ask is for a little patience.
Take care, if we do not cross paths again, others will and you will be very pleased with the results.
