Have you checked optional Windows Updates yet to see if it's delivered drivers? Those are the ones you want. I posted this at the beginning of the thread but apparently you didn't read it.

After all of your Updates are installed, if any drivers are still missing in Device manager find them on the Support Downloads webpage for your Device make/model. We can also help you find them.

Since you also didn't follow my advice to start over and get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 at least read over the steps so you understand how it is done and the best methods to maintain a perfect install. Feel free to ask back any questions or for more help.

I did read your reply, it's just that (as if you didn't already know) compared to some of you I'm completely clueless when it comes to this. I have no idea what an adaptor even is, I didn't have any interest in burning a CD of a copy of Windows when I already have an official CD of it. I'm glad I took care of all the stuff that came with the computer, and I lol at myself for getting irritated by getting all of it, those CD's installed the drivers so now everything is fine. Just did a restart and it had to install 83 updates. I have not checked for Windows updates online, and I didn't when I read your reply because I didn't have any line to be on. If you know what I mean, no intawebs. But thanks for spending your time trying to help me and giving me tips

If you or anyone else want to play something on steam with me, my steam is ''Gnuthekuk''.

This is an interactive forum so if you have difficulty understanding anything you only need to ask back to get it explained. This is much better than just ignoring advice as though the helper isn't there.

Make sure to install all of the updates including Optional. Did it deliver any drivers yet? Are there any missing in Device Manager after updates are complete?

EDIT: Every update downloaded

Since it seems you have a problem attending to details...

As I've already said, it's fine now. The performance is awesome as always. I found old files on the computer today though, but I deleted it all because well, I want a more clean system in my stuff. I have no idea what device manager is.

Device Manager lists all your hardware and their driver state and is one of the first places to look when troubleshooting driver problems.

Having a blase attitude when things are running well is not a problem, but the more you can learn about Windows the better-equipped you are when things start to go wrong.

Type Device Manager in the Start Search box.

As if I haven't already tried that :P
Maybe it won't show because I have a different language on my PC.
