I didn't think you could do an upgrade from XP to Windows 7.

Anyway can you give us more details about your setup please, what type of computer do you have, desktop or laptop, and how do you connect to the Internet when it works, do you have a router or modem ?

Can you also tell us where you got your copy of Windows 7 and what version it is ?

The experts can't see your machine so need as many details as possible so they can help you.
