Ok you would need to go to device manager. To get there goto start-right click computer- manage - device manager - then under each device you right click the device and click update driver and point the path towards the usb stick.

Well see you said that you installed drivers for your hardware. What drivers did you install of the disc? Are you using onboaard graphics or your own graphics card? I need to know what you exactly what you installed

I have my on graphics card which is posted above. The drivers i used for my motherboard where from the disc it came with. i went to the manufracture website like you said and downloaded the updated drivers like you said to do and put it on my usb. i have different drivers for my graphics card which i have not installed yet because of the freezing issue. I am only working on the drivers for my motherboard hopefully that clears things up

Well since you only installed the Operating system. It would be better just to do a clean install? That way with out the driver disk you can just do them each one at a time? Or we could just go through them one by one.

so after messing around with and doing the things you said it finally started to boot up properly. But after about 5 to 10 minutes later while im on the desktop it freezes once again. Also in that time I can get the drivers installed but I dont know if that is the correct drivers to use so im gonna hold off on downloading them to confirm with you here is a link ASRock > 990FX Extreme3 . thats to the website and to my motherboard so if these are the correct driver i will download them.
