Please fill out your System Specs. Make, full model number, RAM and 32 or 64 bit especially needed.

How did you install? Was it via a recovery DVD or partition or did you install from a Windows 7 DVD?
Have you looked at Device Manager to see if there are any device drivers need, especially Network Adapters?
