Please give us some information to work with. Which version of Seven did you install? Which version of Seven do you have on the computer now? Did you do a system restore? Did you run the factory reset?

Ditto with Indianatone above. Without some information nothing could be said.

Answer to all his questions and upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
How to Create a System Information File in Windows.

Also, fill up your system specs.
