If you bought the Windows 7 media and can do a clean install I would go with that. Just use the key that the machine came with...so that you can use the software that you bought on another computer down the road.

Once the install completes, look in device manager if any drivers are needed, the odds are good that you will be good to go and not need to add any drivers; if you need to add any, post back here.

No look on the COA sticker attached to the PC, if it's a lappy it's under the battery.


It'll be 5 sets of 5 letters/numbers that will look like this.
