Assuming you have a USB internet adapter, check your USB devices under Device Manager - any yellow or red "!" or "?"? Try uninstalling your USB devices anyway and reboot.

Hi thanks for the reply I managed to sort it, after the reset it had deleted some of the wireless drivers for some reason so I had to install them. Still having a few problems but this is for another section so thanks.

It deleted all of the drivers.

In the Device Manager, go through ever item that has a mark over it - yellow or red - and load the newest drivers for them. That will likely solve many of the problems you are trying to sort out. It's to be expected when you reformat.

I just put together this thread and your new one. Let's wait for the drivers until we see if we can get this computer on the internet quickly. It will make downloading the other drivers easier.
