So I'm a little nervous but I'm sure there is a way to get the internet going I just am not sure how I only know how to type in the key for the router so what now? and thank you so much by the way!
The first thing you need to concentrate on is getting on the internet. Do you know which of your drivers is for that? If so, install that and do what you can to get connected. After that is done, you will be in good shape. One of us will be here to help out. Don't be nervous. Go to the "Setting Up a Network" link that was given in the last message. Let us know how you are doing. == If that link doesn't help, try this one. Network Location - Set as Home, Work, or Public Network

OK so no win updates because no internet and then I remembered that I have a winrar on my ext HD so I installed that and am now in the process of opening the drivers and installing them I hope that I'm able to get all of them this way. I will post back my progress and failures in a bit and thanks again for being there it means a lot to me this site has been a true learning experience and I love the warmth of the community I post back in a sec.....

Okay so wireless setup I can't find the Ethernet the one I did find didn't work so I'm doing Windows updates right now 140 of them and I'm waiting to see what all that installs so I'll keep my fingers crossed and won't install anything else until that is done and have restarted the computer and then I will check w/ device manager and see what that tells me!

Did you even read Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

It say clearly to connect via Ethernet cable during install to increase to 70% the chance it will install your network driver during install. It also says to put your network driver in the backup from the Lenovo Support Downloads webpage for your model so if it isn't provided during install you can install it and then get online.

It then tells you exactly what to do once you get online: Enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates until no more are offered again when you Check for Updates after a requested reboot. This should provide most all drivers. Any then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model.

I am sorry I am just very overwhelmed by all the information and I apologize for disturbing you really I made a mistake that happen to some people. Any way I guess this means that is why the three drivers left won't install. I am new to this and it is somewhat difficult for me to get it right so if I have to start all over again then I guess that is what I will have to do. But really for some one who has never done this type of technical actions and is just trying his best to learn because lenovo screwed him over and is offering no help for a large amount of money spent I would say that I am frustrated and doing my best thank you for the reminder that I am not paying close enough attention I will do better and hopefully not disturb any one else
