Windows 7: Win 7 on Samsung RV515 formatted

Win 7 on Samsung RV515 formatted

Hi from a first timer. I recently bought a Samsung RV515 with Win 7 installed. I have been using Win Xp for years. Could not get the hang of Win 7 so I formatted the 500gb hard drive and installed Win Xp. I will not go through the problems this caused. Suffice to say I have since used my Recovery Disk to reinstall Win 7. Don't slap my wrist too hard for being a idiot. Now I cannot get on the Internet because the drivers and protocol are missing.
I do not know what Internet Card this Laptop has installed or what drivers are required.
Will some kind computer wizard please help.

Welcome to seven Forums and I am not a Wizard, but if you go to the samsung site and look up your specific computer, they should have downloads for every driver you need. Once the driver is installed, you should have no problem connecting.

Also, try looking in device manager and it should tell you the graphics adapter and wi fi or lan type. But, all those should be on Samsung's web site
