Question about EPoX Computers & Internet
After formatting and reinstalling Windows, you didn't install the software drivers for your computer. You are able to see and use Windows, so graphics is working, right?
Install the sound and video / graphics drivers and your system will work fine.
Yo'll need the driver CD that came along with your computer. If you don't have it, you have to search your computer manufacturer's website for the drivers. However, here's an easy way:
Use this driver scanning tool, which scans your computer for the needed drivers. It has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.
You can download this free tool from here, or directly from this link.
After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.
Hope that helps,

Have you started your computer with the recovery/installation CD in the drive so that it can re-install the operating system?
If you actually formated the whole hard drive that your operating system is on, then you will not be able to use your computer until you re-install the operating system.
You should have a recovery CD that came with your computer. Put that in the drive, and start your computer. I assume you can see the white text while the computer boots up?
If it doesn't look at the CD, then you'll need to wait for the beep while the computer boots up, and press "Del" to enter setup in which you can specify that your CD drive should be examined first. That way your comuter will read the CD when it boots up, and will give you instructions on how to install the operating system.
After you've installed the operating system, you might need to check and see if you have drivers for your video card, or sound card.
You might not need either one, but if you have them you will need to use them.
Best of luck
