The guy gave me windows 7 to try out. I liked it so I decided to stick with it. But I just tried to install my modem and it cant seem to intall the drivers for it. I installed it using the C.D. and downloaded drivers from the website but it still didnt work.

Modem model: Sagem F@st 800 E2T
Service provider: TalkTalk
Windows 7

If there is no way then how can I downgrade to windows vista (I have the CD for vista) without losing all my data, I have alot of videos and no way of copying them somewhere else unless I burn it 2 loads of C.D's or buy like a 100GB harddisk which I dnt have the money for.

Not all hardware works under Windows 7 at this time. Sometimes you can feed a device a Vista driver and it'll work. Not always though.
You can't do a downgrade without wiping the computer.

An alternative and maybe cheaper and more reliable solution is an ADSL router that you don't need any drivers for, you can wipe the computer until the cows come home and as long as you have a network driver on the computer, you can go online with no problem.
