Windows 7: iRush Pro Monitor Problem

Thank you very much guys, I'll let you know how it goes.

One last question:
I have a AMD Graphics Card Driver CD, a Windows 7 CD, and a FOXCONN Drivers & Utilities CD ITL-0B2 Motherboard disk with Norton (I won't install Norton).

I'm guessing I install Windows 7, then the GFX Driver then the Drivers/Utilities disk, please correct my mistake.

Cheers Joe

Install Windows, get antivirus running, update Windows, and then take a look in device manager and look for errors.

Windows should recognize the graphics card and install a driver for it.

You may not need the AMD driver disk unless it has some special features not in the Windows driver.

You may not need the Foxconn disc either--it just depends on what functionality is missing after Windows is updated. For instance, you might not have sound or a working Internet connection. In that case, look in Device Manager to see what drivers are installed already. You may then have to resort to the Foxconn disc.

I'd at least look at the Foxconn disc, but I wouldn't blindly install everything I saw.

I'd avoid installing as much as I could get away with. Pick and choose. There is very little chance you will need it all. The "utilities" may be totally useless or worse.

The driver disk for the video card, either through it out or use it as a coaster. Just go here,

ATI Radeon

to get the driver for it. Same can be pretty much be said for the Foxconn and utilities disks. Just go to the Foxconn download page for the model of motherboard and get the latest No idea what utilities Foxconn has but if they are anything like the one's from Asus (nice programs in theory, but just way to much bloat for what they do), then no you don't need it.

I would do that but the problem is there is no network card preinstalled, someone from nova tech linked me to a USB Wirelesss Adapter.

Unless it doesn't even need net to run.

Yes there is. Unless they used some off the wall motherboard, there hasn't been a consumer grade motherboard made recently that doesn't have an onboard NIC of some kind. Not only does that motherboard have an onboard NIC, it also supports gigabit lan,

The irush Pro

Unless you need wireless (for which yes, you will need either a wireless card or USB adapter), then it already has all you need. just plug an ethernet cable into the port on the computer and the other end to your router or modem.

Above appears to be the download page for your motherboard at Foxconn. You can go there and get the latest drivers if you have issues.

You have an onboard LAN chip. The driver for it is at the above link and should also be on your Foxconn disk.

It looks like all of the downloadable stuff is dated Dec 20 of 2010, so it may not be any newer than what is on your Foxconn disc.

You should definitely download the motherboard manual.

BELKIN DVI-I to VGA Video Cable 3M at cheap prices | PC World

Would this one work?

It's not SCGA just VGA.

Or will I need that blue cable if I got this.

Yes it will work, but why would you want that one when it is almost 2.5x more than the one linked to previously?
