That's what I figured. You should not try this stuff if you are not comfortable doing it.

When "the guy" takes a look please fill us in on what he finds.

All I see is an ad for GYAZO. What am I supposed to be looking at?

I see the upper right corner of a Windows Explorer window. It looks normal. There is nothing to compare it to, so I do not know what is different.

Here is mine:

Yeah you can see mine is smaller, mine looked like yours before.

Anyways, when I turned on the PC this morning everything was fast..

But then suddenly the menu American MEGATRENDS

"... Hubs connected"

"No keyboard detected!"

Then I had to take the power off the PC, then turn it back in to get rid of that menu,

and then I got the menu up "JMICRON No drivers found"

I downloaded that driver yesterday!

Does my drivers get deleted or what?!

I'm so confused, could it be something wrong with my motherboard?

OK, what you are looking at is the (normal) BIOS initiating screens. They are not "menus".
As the BIOS is running it's regular start up routine it is displaying it's progress on the display - usually white letters on a black background.

The display "JMICRON No drivers found" means that your motherboard has a secondary SATA controller and it has no driver. Here it gets complicated: this is a newer system with a new kind of BIOS (UEFI). These can require drivers for the UEFI - completely separate from the operating system.
But here's the thing: Do you have any hard disk or optical drives connected to the top red SATA ports? If not then this is a red herring and a waste of your time. If it bothers you this port can be disabled in the UEFI settings.

"No keyboard detected!" is more problematic. If this is a USB connected keyboard that could mean that your USB ports are not configured correctly. Does the keyboard work?

It sounds like you had someone build this computer for you. I do not recommend playing with the UEFI settings unless you know what you are doing. Can you have this person take a look at it?
We can help from here, but I'd hate to see you make things worse due to misunderstanding of instructions.

And I still do not see a problem with your Windows Explorer issue. Your photo is small because it is a small photo. What exactly do you see as a problem in your photo?
The only thing I notice is that my Explorer window is transparent and yours is not. Is this the problem you are trying to correct?

And by "Go slow" do you mean that previously the computer went directly to the "Starting Windows" screen, but now it shows all that white on black UEFI display?
