Welcome to Seven Forums :)

Why do you want to use WiFi on a desktop ?

Is this an add in card or is it on the board ?

Can you post a manufacturers link to your board, who makes a Tomahawk ?

Windows 7 ultimate x64

Well I was upgrading some parts to my computer (the motherboard, processor and ram). After rebuilding the pic I went to turn it on and it all booted up ok, first I went into the bios my keyboard and mouse worked but after I left and went into the desktop my mouse and keyboard stopped working,also my headphones didn't work and my wifi adapter wouldn't work it was like it wasn't even plugged in.

So I then went searched around abit and managed to fix the mouse and motherboard, they now work in the desktop but my headphones and wifi adapter both still don't.

Wow, you typed the same thing you typed in your opening paragraph.

Dumb question, have you installed the drivers ?

Have you run all rounds of windows update yet ?

Open Device Manager and look for the missing drivers.
Don't forget that, on the disk that came with your MB, you probably have all drivers. Once you get the internet working, go to the MSI site and download the last updated drivers.
