    I completely formatted my computer to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, I put in the correct product key and then when I attempted to connect to the internet I couldn't because I don't have the correct drivers.
    Back when I used to use Windows XP I put a little CD in and then installed the drivers from Device Manager but now with Windows 7, I put the CD in and I can't install the drivers. They show up with a tiny symbol with a yellow exclamation mark on it (it was like this too back when I used XP, but I had no problems then,). Does anyone know what I can do?
    The uninstalled drivers are these:
    Base System Device
    Base System Device
    Ethernet Controller
    Network Controller
    SM Bus Controller

    I'm stumped here, any help would be greatly appreciated. When I right click and click "Update Drivers" it says there are no updates.

    It's an Acer Laptop.
    If that doesn't help I got these:

    Windows 7 Home Premium
    AMD A-Series Quad-Core Processor A6-3400M - 4MB cache, 1.4GHz
    15.6" HD 1366 x 768 pixel resolution - 6GB DDR3 SDRAM
    500GB hard drive
    integrated Super-Multi drive
    5-in-1 card reader
    AMD Radeon HD 6520G Graphics
    802.11b/g/n WLAN
    Gigabit LAN

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for.

    That's the one. :)
    So basically, I'll have to download them onto my current laptop, put them on a USB, transfer them to my computer which requires the drivers, then what do I do from there?

    Then you install all of the ones you need then reboot and you should be good to go.You can check the device mgr and if theres no yellow triangles then you are all set.
