If it is you can try the following,;

If your computer is running on Windows XP, normally driver signing is enabled and it will prompt you that an unsigned driver is being installed it will ask you whether you want to install it or not but there are some cases that on the driver signing option that its set to Block unsigned drivers.

To find out which is the current sttings you can go to Control Panel then Look for System
Under the System Properties got the Hardware tab and look for Sriver Signing, on the Driver Signing Options make sure its either set to Ignore or Warn(choose warn so that you are properly noticed if the driver is signed or approved by Windows or Not.

Note: some unsigned drivers may cause your computer to go on bluescreen if its really not compatible or better check 1st on the device's manual if it really is compatible with your system.

Hello I've installed windows7 on my pc, now i'v...

This message has nothing to do with your router. Windows 7 is not recognizing your network adapter card possibly due to an incompatible driver.

You need to ensure that your network card has a driver that is compatible with Windows 7 and is installed and working properly.

If you right click on My Computer on the desktop and choose Manage look for Device Manager in the left pane and click on it. Now in the right pane you should see a listing for Network Adapters. First of all if it is yellow with an question mark it means that the driver either is not installed or is not functioning. you will need to find the driver for that network card and install it.

If it looks ok check the version by right clicking on it and selecting properties. Confirm with the vendor that this driver is Windows 7 compatible. If not you may be able to find a generic Microsoft driver that will work.

If that all fails you will need to get and install another network card that is compatible with this operating system.

Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. To run your program on Windows XP, try the following:
  1. Run the Program Compatibility Wizard. As an alternative, you can set the compatibility properties manually.
  2. Update your program, drivers, or hardware.
These options are covered in detail below.
The Program Compatibility Wizard This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows 95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.
If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file might be called Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation disc for the program.
To run the Program Compatibility Wizard
  1. Start the Program Compatibility Wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

I have a American Micro Devices Graphics chip. A Radeon 9250. It automatically enlarges my screen resolution right after it crashes my game. What is wrong with this graphics chip? Is it fried?

No it's a lower resolution for safety due to driver fail.
The game has a safe fail that's doing that because your drivers are not fully compatible.
