One thing i would also do is find an internet driver. I did a reformat one time and there were no drivers to operate the internet portion. see if there is one of those for yours before you reformat. Then when you do the reformat you can go to your device manager. When you right click on the device and go to properties you will find update drivers under one of the tabs. It will search the net there and take care of it. I just upgraded and that was the easiest way that i found. keep in mind if you have any hardware on the computer that is older like a webcam or something like that some of those are not compatible with windows 7 yet. thats the best advice i have. someone may have better ideas but that is how i do it.
I am doing a clean install WIN7 upgrade. I have located the video and audio drivers for WIN7 and burned them to CD. I assume WIN7 will operate on its default, built-in drivers initially. When and how do I upgrade to the latest factory WIN7 drivers?
