Hi All,

My pc broke last year and I've just got it up and running again. It has had a complete wipe and I'm back on windows 7 as I never received windows 10 serial number on purchase.

My concern is that I've done something wrong, the pc use be really fast to start, within about 15 seconds from turning it on it was ready to go, its much much slower now.

Now when I search for how to speed up your computer, its all about speeding up a pc that's been in use and is full of crap, this has had a fresh install so It's pointless me trying any of that stuff.

Any help would be great! FYI I am a novice and did mess about with the pc a lot last year trying to fix it without losing all my photos, luckily managed it and now backed-up my photos to a pen drive.
 
Did you install all the motherboard specific drivers (chipset, storage controllers, lan, audio, intel management engine) from the manufacturers website?

Nvidia driver straight from nvidia website?

SSD driver (if you have one)?

If you had Win 10 on before, no need for a key - it fingerprinted your system during original install. Just install it again (can be clean or upgrade) and it will auto-activate.

No I just installed the graphics card :/
I don't even know how to install the motherboard drivers?
Not sure what the SSD driver is?
I didn't know about that with windows 10. I actually don't mind using windows 7 for now, really need a pc for work, so ill bare with it.
 
Gotta figure out which one you have, specifically - that model turns up several (should be printed on the board itself):
https://www.msi.com/search/ms-7592/product/3

Then, get the right one and click Download, pick your OS, download each of those things listed (the newest one each), and run each one individually.

Do you have an SSD (solid state drive) or HDD (hard drive)? HDD doesn't need a driver. SSD might.

Back to the graphics card - did you go to nvidia's site and get the latest Win7 driver?
