newly installed win 7 - Unidentified network, no access
Hi I have just installed windows7 on my computer, i was using vista before. however this is a fresh install not an upgrade. After installation I downloaded google chrome and started browsing through google chrome.
and i realised all drivers are installed by windoes7 automatically but my sound card drivers were not installed. my computer is an old one i mean it is a fujitsu siemens computer which had win xp installed on it originally and was bought prob. 2 years ago. so sound card drivers also should have been installed by win 7 automatically.
But anyways i downloaded a software from internet called driverwhiz to install the missing driver itself as soon as i started to install the software it just went half way through installation my internet stopped working and network connection started showing as unidentified network no access. i tried uninstalling driverwhiz, tried uninstalling and reinstalling the onboard ethernet port, disabled pci modem card, tried widows 7 fixing the problem itself but all in vain. it just says unidentified network.
Can anybody help me with this please.

Do you assume that driver whiz is the cause of this?
I assume you "uninstalled" it through control panel/programs and features?
How about this:
download and install Revo Uninstaller
reinstall driver whiz, but don't run it.
use Revo to then immediatley uninstall driver whiz, using it's capability to dig into the registry and root out any last remnants.
Then try to reestablish networking through ordinary means.
I've used the "reinstall then immediately uninstall" thing to get around problems before and it worked.
But I'm stabbing in the dark. Who knows what registry changes may have been caused by driver whiz.
How does Device Manager look? Can you revert to older drivers there?
