I just did a fresh install of 7 on my pc and I'm having a couple of issues:
1) my ethernet port it not recognizing the dsl line running into it. What I have done thus far is uninstall the sis-900 ethernet adapater from device manager. Installed fresh drivers from the microsoft software catalogue and still nothing. There are no flashing lights on the port either. I have though managed to get the pc hooked up to the net by isntalling a wireless usb adapter, and I have done all of the necessary update from microsoft. I wouldn't normally care about DSL when I have wlan, but the reason this is bothering me is because I also have Ubuntu 10.10 installed alongside of it. Ubuntu is not picking up either the wireless adapter or the ethernet port.
2) The graphics are alright, but I would like to take full benefits of the graphics card I have. I installe the drivers for the ATI HD Radeon 46XX (I believe) running through the AGP port. Once I isntall the drivers, windows aero will work fine, but the minimize, restore and close buttons at the top right become all "scrambled" looking. Again I tried windows update and had no success.
Any ideas? I posted these issues in the same thread becuase for some reason I have a feeling that they are related in some sense and that once I have the solution to one, I would have the solution to the other.
Thanks for any help, let me know if you need anymore info!
