Default Drivers

I'm going to be doing a clean install of Windows 7 Pro, but I don't have any of my driver CDs. Should all of these drivers be available at the manufacterers site? The comp in my sig.

Right here
I figure you are running 64bit since you have 4 gigs of RAM.

Yup, all the newest drivers can be had at the manufacturer's sites.

Don't forget Creative's site for the sound drivers: Creative Support

I got the Nvidia and Creative drivers installed alright, but I can not access the internet. Windows 7 isn't downloading drivers for my adapter. I dled linksys drivers from the adapter's page on a diff comp, but it didn't work on my Windows 7 machine. The adapter worked in XP and Vista. What should I do?

You should be able to use the Vista drivers for your network adapter in W7.

I don't have the CD for it and the driver I did download for it didn't run in Win7. It wasn't an executable file.

Did you try to install it via Device Manager - Update driver?

Do it the way A True Folder suggested. Just point the wizard to the folder containing the drivers you downloaded.
