Windows 7: New build/Win7 install acting up

New build/Win7 install acting up

I just built a Sandy Bridge machine (Asus P8P67 Pro, 2600k, GSKILL Ripjaw, AMD 6950, along with an old 1tb WD drive and Corsair 650w PSU) and installed Windows 7 fresh.

My mouse (Logitech G9) is on and usable (in bios and during boot) right up to the moment when Windows 7 boots. It was also unusable during the Win7 installation process. If I disconnect and reconnect it the lights flash one time, and the mouse again turns off.

My internet setup, a cable modem running through a Linksys modem, is also not recognized and I have no internet access. This is very strange since except for the hardware everything about my internet setup is exactly the same as it was when I installed Win7 fresh last week, whereupon I had no such problems.

Any ideas? I really want to get my new system up and running!

Just out of curiosity have you tried the mouse on another port? Also have you reset the modem and router to see if that resolves the issue? My old linksys router used to give me troubles if it had been on for a long period of time.

Hi gmreplay.
You should bring us all up to speed on what you have done so far.
Have you installed all the drivers for all of your devices, including the mouse? (Check Device Manager?)

Have you checked Windows Update to see if there are drivers available there?

Let us know what you know.

I installed the Logitech G9 software, and while it didn't give me any errors (i.e. no device found), my mouse still isn't on or functional. I did try it in other USB ports, but those also just caused the mouse to turn on briefly and right back off again. I just tested the mouse in my laptop, and (after windows automatically installing a driver), it works fine. Not sure why installing the driver software manually for my desktop didn't work.

As to the router, I've installed no drivers for that, but in all my installs of Win7 it has never been a problem. I'd like to try installing a driver manually, but I wouldn't even know which driver to look for.

My router is currently working as it is giving me wireless to the laptop I'm using to post this, so the problem doesn't seem to be with the router. It is directly connected to the desktop via an ethernet cable. And of course I can't use windows update because the internet still isn't working on the desktop.

Solved! The mouse began working on my next boot up. Apparently the Logitech software needed a reboot and didn't mention it to me.

I was also able to get the internet working by installing the Intel LAN driver off of the motherboard drivers disk. I'm confused as to why this was necessary, since I've never had any such problems when using my last Asus board. In any case I'm very pleased to get the system up and running. Thanks for the help everyone!

Always check for drivers after installing Windows.
