Solved I deleted a partition, now game keeps glitching

March 8, 2018 at 20:42:10
Specs: Windows 7
I installed Linux but most of my games didn't work on it, so I was instaling Windows from a CD. I couldn't figure out how to delete the previous operating system (LINUX) but when i put in the Windows cd, it showed that Linux was on the only partition. SO i deleted it...I realize i probably shouldn't have done that...Now it didn't recognize my graphics card and couldn't find drivers for some hardware in the computer, and my games still don't work! and the one that works keeps "not responding" every 15 minutes and turns off. I probably deleted something important in that partition...(I didn't split the partitions or anything, just installed Linux as the only OP from usb stick)(all my games worked before on Windows before I installed Linux) Is there any way to fix whatever I did wrong?

Asus support downloads is where drivers will be; and naturally you look for windows-7 drivers

https://www.asus.com/support/Downlo...

You need to know (which is obvious of course) if you have a laptop or desktop. I suspect a laptop?

Presuming it is a laptop then "somewhere" on the case (front panel/screen surround, or on the base) will be the model number.

As others will also likely advise - avoid third-party driver find sites and apps... Frequently they cause more problems than they resolve... Go to Asus only.

Can you clarify (explain a little more) what is on your computer’s hard drive now.

Have you managed to install windows (7) ok and that is now the only operating system on the drive? Or do you still have a Linux partition and windows installed as well?

Does windows (if installed) work ok other than for the games?

(The way I read/interpret your post is that you have only windows 7 installed now.)

Are you still trying to run Linux from a usb stick?

What make and model is your computer?

You need to download and install Windows drivers from your computer manufacturer's web site for your hardware.

This has nothing to do with the Linux install.

So yes it works ok other than for games. I knew something was wrong when i couldn't get internet connection when it finished installing (even though the internet cable was plugged right in)(because it was missing the 'drivers') but i solved that by carrying the driver over on a usb. However now i used the unknown device idenntifier and it says that 2 drivers still missing.

@system32/DRIVERS/pci.sys,#3077,SM BUS CONTROLLER
-Intel 7 series/C216 chipset FAmily SMBUS Host Controller

@system32/DRIVERS/pci.sys,#3075UNIVERSAL Serial Bus Controller (UNKNOWN DEVICE)
-Intel 7 series/C216 chipset FAmily USB XHCI Controller

MAke and model of computer..umm sorry not sure where to find that info...i only know where to find "system information". It says ASUS on it.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz, 3300 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
System Type X86-based PC
System Directory C:\Windows\system32

Not sure if that helps at all..
Yes, Windows is the only op system. No I don't want Linux back! Lol (I mean it was fine, or it will be fine when the manufacturers make games that easily work on it)

If this is the problem, do you know where I would find these drivers? I already tried clicking on "find drivers on the internet" in the program "unknown device identifier" it didnt work.
