I believe that Epox is out of business and nvidia (the chipset maker) does not supply any drivers for nforce2 chipsets and Vista or Windows 7. If Windows 7 can't configure the hardware then I think you are out of luck. Did you bother to check if Windows 7 could run on your hardware?

I suggest you revert back to XP or upgrade your hardware. nforce2 boards are pretty old stuff.

I agree with OtheHill. Your system is pretty outdated. You should have done the Win7 compatibilty check before wiping the drive. You didn't list your specs but my guess is you don't have enough RAM to run Win7 decently anyway, even if you could find the needed drivers.

"I have tried to install drivers from my video card disc,AT&T disc and my motherboard disc but none of them work"

Were these disks created before or after Win7 was available? Obviously if they are pre-Win7 disks, they couldn't possibly contain Win7 drivers. Looks like you need drivers for the motherboard chipset, audio, LAN. These pages will help identify some of the hardware, then you can do a search based on the model numbers:

You'll also need a Win7 driver for your USB wireless & it sounds like you're lacking the graphics drivers as well. Those will be found at the wireless manufacturer & graphics manufacturer websites.
