Glad you got it fixed... But do remember...

Before installing a new OS, go to the manufacturer sites for your hardware and download the newest drivers for each component, and save them to a seperate drive, flash, or burn to disc.

95% of the time, when you get new hardware, the disc that comes with that hardware already has outdated software on it.

But dont throw the disc away! Some software updates require the original software to be installed before doing the update. For me, if thats the case, i will copy the disc to one of my storage drives or make an ISO, just in case... Plus installing from the HDD is a lot faster anyway.
