You need to find the make of the motherboard and graphics
adapter for your computer, then go to the manufacturers'
website(s) & download the Win7 drivers from there. The chipset
driver should be the first one you need to find/install.

get the new drivers for your motherboard. You never gave us any specs on your PC and motherboard so it's pretty hard to help you.

Sorry I couldn't really give info about my motherboard. My
computer was rebuilt and given to me so I really don't know
wat my mobo is and I can't find any manufac numbers on it. If
u could help with this and my previous problem please do. My
desktop is supposedly has an hp body/case with emachine
mixed parts on the inside. If this is true I don't know. I also
have no way of contacting the person who built the computer.
I would actually prefer to just put windows xp on it instead of
windows 7 but I can't at the moment.

try a free utility called SIW:

That will help you identify most of the PC

So these are all the specs on my computer, so hopefully it will help to figure out what i need to do. this computer also needs Direct x 9.0c which i have put a setup folder containing it onto the computer but when i go to download it it says: setup could not download the file. please retry later or check network connection. Do i need to be connected to the internet? because the computer is not connected to the internet. so any files i need to place onto the computer have to be moved from a different computer using a usb, cd, etc.
