Re: need help with computer

Get the cd key from your friend again.. he may or may not have it.

If it's only program files that you've lost, just download them again (if you don't know anyone that already has them).

You can always do a search for a ****** for photoshop.. or so I've heard.

As for the USB and VGA drivers, go to Gigabyte's website and download the drivers for your mother board and install them.

I always keep a folder for my installers and burn them to disc, that way when I back up I just need to throw the cd in and install the programs again.

Good Luck!
