Fresh Windows 7 Install not detecting USB or network devices
Family member got a new laptop for Christmas and asked if I could clean it up. So I just went about freshly installing Windows 7 in order to rid of the ridiculous bloatware. Well, same OS installed fresh and the computer won't detect anything from the USB ports, the ethernet port or the wifi adapter.

you probably need to install the drivers. not ALL of them are included with the OS.
