So i just bought this used PC, i installed a new Windows (7) and upon installing the video driver, everything crashed. Restarted in safe mode, and it happened again. Apparently, the problem persists with the audio drivers as well. What can I do?

So yeah, i bought it kinda cheap off eBay, but that doesn't mean it's not supposed to work. The graphics card is new, mind you.
