Last response: in Windows 7

I'm having trouble installing drivers on my recently assembled custom PC. After turning the computer on, I inserted the Windows 7 disk and it loaded the files. Shortly after, it asked me to insert the CD with the drivers associated with the computer. I inserted the motherboard driver CD but it wasn't recognized. The CD/DVD ROM obviously works because it recognized the Windows 7 disk. I'm not sure what the problem is.

If anyone has any suggestions it would be appreciated. Please help.

System Specifications:
CPU: Intel Pentium E6700 Dual core 3.2ghz

RAM: 2x1GB DDR2
HDD: Western Digital 500GB 7200RPM
Case: NZXT Guardian 921 RB

Ok I'll try it. Although I don't see why the driver on the disk it came with won't work.

There are 4 drivers for Win7 64-bit, do I need all of them? And there are also 4 bios for 64-bit and 1 software app.

I used the same external CD ROM on the laptop i'm currently using and it was recognized, so the apparently the CD is fine. I don't know what you mean by auto execute.

No, the usb cd writer doesn't need a driver. I looked in the BIOS and its detected
