Sorry to keep asking questions, you probably just want me to install it and get over and done with.

I have backed up all the data i need (i think i have anyway). Once i install windows 7, will i be able to acess the internet right away (Will it install/come with drivers to allow this) or will i have to find my ethernet drive online and back it up?

Asus K8v Motherboard so dont know if the drivers are still available

You should be able to access the internet right away. In the very unlikely event it can't, you will need to download the driver onto a CD or thumb drive.

99% guaranteed to work right out of the box though.

OK, Over here in the colonies it's not that late so we'll still be up for awhile. Glad that we can be of assistance.

Hello!

Well, its all up and working. No problems so far, just putting all my files and music back across and installing my programs.

Just wondering how i can get "custom" themes which are already made? Ive seen a few websites but dont know if theyre trusted or not. I just googled "Windows 7 Themes" and a few near the top looked a bit dodgey. Although the ones on the actual windows website arent very good.

Thanks

Hi James, and welcome to Sevenforums

You can have a look for themes on the following sites:
Browsing Customization on deviantART
Virtual Customs - Home


On how to apply these themes, have a look at this tutorial
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes

Hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else

Thakns . I did do a search in the website but couldnt find much. I probably have a lack of investigation skills .

Having problems with windows media player opening, becuase i have a lot of songs, everytime i open it, it just wants to load all of my songs which in turn crashes the program.

Thanks

Can you tell how many songs we are talking about? It shouldnt crash that easy as mine nearly got 2000 songs and hasnt crashed a single time yet
