Try running a disk clean up to make sure.
Considering its a fresh install, you could always install Windows again. As a last resort, that it.
The disk clean up had hardly anthing to clean... only like 5mb of thumbnails were deleted
I also tried to go back to windows 8 at one point, but the graphics card still did not work. So I went back to Windows 7 again and it still didnt work. What I find interesting is that it originally did work on the win8 that i bought it with. So maybe i just need some very unique drivers but I do not know.
any other suggestions? thx for the replies by you.
