Windows 7: Two big problems after reinstalling Windows 7 on my computer.

Two big problems after reinstalling Windows 7 on my computer.

Hello, this is my first post on these forums.

Okay, so when I got home today my computer was still on from yesterday. It was working fine, but when I played some Team Fortress 2 I noticed that the performance wasn't all there. So I decided to restart it because that usually fixes everything, and I thought it might be ''tired'' from running for a long time.

Here comes the weird part:

Or, one of the weird parts I guess.

Anyway, when it started from the reboot I couldn't see the accounts, so I couldn't log in. The only thing visible on the screen was the windows 7 background. So I'm like wtf. I tried restarting it again, but then the starting screen got black and it got stuck on some white text. Plus a spinning /. So I found my Windows 7 CD and put it in. Then I got two choices after pressing install, repair and install. So I tried repair, and it asked me if I wanted to upgrade the computer(or fix it) and keep all my files and everything, so I thought yeah. But it didn't work, can't remember why. I'm sorry that I don't know everything it said. Anyway, I decide to just reinstall Windows and I do, deleting all of my shit. Oh well.

ANYWAY, it works now. I made a new account and all that, but when I got in the resolution was off. Here is the first current problem.

The resolution is stuck at 640 x 480. I can't choose any other resolution, but I could once. But I clicked the wrong one and declined when I got asked if I wanted to keep that resolution. It won't give me another chance. I'm trying to intall drivers, but I can't click the buttons because they're out of the screen because of the resolution. This is so frustrating.

My other problem is that I can't connect to internet either. So I can't download drivers on the internet. My computer tells me I need to install a driver for the internet. ****.

SO, does anyone have any kind of idea what I can do to fix the resolution without internet? There's a lot of buttons that would be helpful, but I can't click them all because they don't fit in the screen.

My computer is relatively new, had it in maybe 6 months or something, and it's supposed to be pretty good.

It would have been best to ask us before you wiped out your old install since we could have helped you repair it or copy out your files to run Factory Recovery or Clean Reinstall.

What's best now is to start over and follow these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Note that you should put your LAN driver on stick or CD to install to get online to get the latest drivers from optional Windows Updates. Any missing drivers can then be imported from the Support Downloads webpage for the Device model, or ask back here for help.

I do not see your Ethernet or Wireless adpater in the above list so I can't help you find it on it's maker's Support Downloads webpage.

Please fill out your computer's system specs in detail. Can't even find the brand of your computer on reading your post. Read System Info - See Your System Specs for help in filling out the system specs. It is at steps 6 and 7.

That said your computer would work just fine if you install an Ethernet Network Adapter and a suitable Display Adapter.

Thank you for replying.

I can't fill out the specs because I have no internet. I use an ethernet cable, and I don't know what an adaptor even is. I need drivers, and I have them on a CD, but I can't install because the ''Proceed'' buttons won't show because of the resolution. Oh, and btw. I don't know the brand of my computer myself. I went to the website, got my nerdy friend to help me pick out the good pieces, and the company puts it together. It cost me over 1 668.39 U.S. dollars including the headset and keyboard. All I need is a way for the driver installs to fit in the screen, or to hide that bar showing the runnning programs and the start button and time. I think if I hid that bar I'd be able to click the buttons on the driver installs.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

We need to at least know who your LAN (Local Area Network) adapter manufacturer is so that we can help you get some drivers for it and get you online.

Once we've done that we can help you get back up and running again.

Can your 'nerdy' friend help you with these drivers?

If you have your drivers on a CD it may not be very difficult to locate the Ethernet Driver.

Pop the CD in the CD Tray and open the Run Dialog Box (Windows Key+ R). Browse to the Ethernet Driver in the CD by pressing the Browse Button, find the needed Setup File and install. That should do the trick. The same procedure may be followed for the Display Adapter. It doesn't really matter in which order you install the drivers.

If you find this difficult please request your nerdy friend to do it for you. If is a pity that an over $650/- computer is not working properly for you.

You mean System Specs? For that you click on User CP on the top and then in the left panel click on the Edit System Specs. Then you fill out those Text Boxes about which you have definite information. Some of the information is there in your first post.

The other items you may fill up gradually as you keep getting the missing specs of your computer. Your vendor and your nerdy friend may be able to help you out. I am looking forward to seeing more of you on these Forums.

While in User CP you might like to fill the other items too and may be post a profile picture or an avatar.

Good luck to you.
