Problem with Log in and Keyboard

Hi All,

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate.

I'm not sure if any of these are related to the upgrade, but the number pad on my Dynex Keyboard does not work. I exchanged keyboards with no luck. The numbers below the hot keys work just fine.

The welcome screen/log in looks as it someone erased the color, inside of the monitor, in places. The black "streaks" looks as if someone took a pencil, ran it across the inside of the monitor for about an inch, moved over an inch and ran it again for an inch.The majority of the problem, can be seen all across the bottom part of the monitor. The monitor is not even 6 months old and the Nvidia GeForce 6200 is way less than a year.

Thanks in advance.

Respectfully,

Wccc-Pc-tutor

Hello Wccc-Pc-tutor,

It is always best to check with the software manufacturer FIRST. They will tell you if they have tested the product and the version, as well as whether or not it will work with Windows 7.
Check out the Windows 7 Compatibility site: (There you will find out about hardware and software compatibilty.)
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/c [...] fault.aspx
There is a pulldown from which you can choose "hardware" and "software".
There are also some great articles, instructional videos and such to help with your Windows 7 at our Springboard site:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us [...] fault.aspx
In any event a lot of the times, Vista drivers will work in lieu of Windows 7 drivers, however, it's not 100%!
As stated previously, it's best to have the Windows 7 certified drivers installed.
Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.

One statement listed on the upgrade advisor suggested downloading and installing Vista's Service Pack 1. I ran vistas for at least a year, so I'm sure SP 1 was installed.

Thanks in advance.
