Okay, so I just downgraded to Windows 7 from 8 on my PC. That works great and everything, I can install WIN 7 no problem. My problem lies in the fact of after I installed it... I can't get on the internet to access download any of my needed drivers. It says it can't find the proper network driver or something. And I run my PC straight ethernet. So now I'm lost. Help?

So you need to download the NIC drivers... go to the computer manufacturers website and download them. Or if it's a custom PC, download the NIC drivers from the mobo manufacturers website.

I would do that, but I cant get on the internet to do so, it doesnt register that I have an ethernet cable plugged in. that there lies my problem, otherwise I would be fine downloading all necessary drivers :/

if you can post this question you have some form of access -- tether your phone to the computer or use sneakernet to copy the drivers from another pc. Do i really have to tell you these things?

Yes I do have other forms of access to the internet, and it would be nice to know these things, seeing as how I've never had to deal with this problem before, hence my asking for help

You'll have to get the drivers from another PC and move them using a flash drive or external HDD to you new installation.
You'll need the make and model of the PC, then I can link you to the correct driver.
