  1. did you do a clean install of windows on your ssd? or did you do a clone/omage of your old hdd to your SSD?
  2. For downloading:
    Create a folder on your HDD. Call it downloads.
    In your browser setting, set that as the default download location

    For the black bars, your screen settings are incorrect.
  3. it was a clean install
  4. Best answer
    right click on each of the my_docs folders (music, pics etc.), you'll find a tab called location, move the location to your hdd. When installing programs change c:\ to d:\ (or whatever your hdd is called).
  5. Always choose a custom install when you install programs and apps, and it will give you the option of where you want to install the program.
  6. do the drivers install automatically or how should i install the drivers if I don't have a disc tray?

    How would I proceed with that?
