I had window 7 installed on my computer, now mind u, I am new to this. The computer was running fine and I decide to move my whole workstation into another room. When I re-connect everything back and turned on the computer it said that it needed the system disk. I then install the OS and ran the repair but it did not find any errors. So I decided to do a full installation again and re-format my hard drive, so I would be starting over. Windows 7 runs great until the part where it says load drivers. When it runs it does not find any drivers, not for x64 of x86. What could I do or where can i get the device drivers that Window 7 is looking for. Once i get the drivers that the OS is asking for then I can continue with the installation. Please help, I tried everything and the computer is compatibale with Window 7.

What is the make and model of this computer?

Is this the 64-bit operating system?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

There should have been a CD that came with the motherboard for loading the drivers. If you don't have it you should contact the person that built this computer and ask them for it since it did come with your motherboard.

i have tried waht you said dc3 and it doesn't work. I tried installing Window Vista and it does the same thing. Does not find the device drivers. i am thinking that my hard drive went out. I open it and everything is connected properly but when I run the repair the details says no hard drive

When moving computers from room to room, you should inspect all components in the system to verify that nothing became loose and is improperly disconnected/dismounted. I would highly recommend not using the computer in its current state as you could fry something. Most of the time when drivers do not install there is an issue with the device speaking to the Southbridge PCI Controller which handles device memory allocation and identification to the OS.

So with that in mind, make sure all your devices are secure in their slots and that all motherboard mounts are nice and secure.
