Windows 7: No Sound or Internet

No Sound or Internet

About an hour ago I created a Linux os USB Drive and booted into it , after I entered the OS and restarted back into Windows 7 my Sound drivers aren't working neither is my internet. My network wizard won't detect my connections and/or my sound devices and my administration properties seem wired.

I haven't got a backup of all my things, is reformatting my only option at this point? A little disapointed at the moment
Thanks

That Linux may or may not have changed your Win 7 installation. First thought, try the System Restore function and restore the PC back to a date PRIOR to your Linux whatever you did. That MAY get it back working.

System Restore will not delete any user data or e-mails. System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. You can do this either in regular Win 7 or in Safe Mode.

I've had my system restore disabled as my primary drive is an SSD and its disabled for speed.
Another thing I noticed was my internet wasn't streaming in the Linux OS either

Seems this problem has fried my OS and I need a reinstall, I can't see any way out of this situation, I've recovered the drivers restored them. Nothings helping

What does the Device Manager look like? It sounds like your sound and LAN adapters are not enabled.

It would also help if you described what you are doing more clearly. I, for one, have no idea what a "TAILS" USB Drive is or what you are doing with it.
Are you trying to run the OS off of a USB stick?

I fixed the issue, I had the wrong startup mode active in msconfig.
