How did you do the reinstall ? Do you have a retail version of the OS and did a clean install, or do you have a preinstalled version and used the method they gave you to take it back to factory settings ?

You haven't given us any details about the machine so it would help the experts if you told them what make and model machine it is and is it a desktop or laptop. Perhaps you need to install the drivers for your machine, did you get them on a CD ?

Don't forget we can't see your machine so need as many details as possible so we can help you solve your problem.
