From what I am reading here, it seems you are Dual Booting? or did I mis-read it?

1. Did you do ALL Windows updates?
2. They usually recommend that you do a Clean Install and not an upgrade, it usually works better...
3. How much memory do you have installed? (Start>> Right click on COMPUTER go to properties....)
4. Are you getting BSOD Errors/Crashes? also run WHO CRASHED... http://www.resplendence.com/downloads that will also tell you exactly what is causing it...

I don't know how to read these yet...but did you run Who Crashed?...it's free...and easy to read....it tells you exactly what caused the BSOD...and so does Blue Screen View...which is also free....

Ok...go to START and in the box on the lower left hand side and type MSCONFIG and go into START UP tab...and uncheck everything you don't need...This might help you, but I don't think this will be the fix...as I am unsure as to why this is happening...need more info.....

Also, did you say you did an Upgrade from XP to Win 7? or a Clean install?

Ok...just to make sure, a clean install means (saving all your information) formatting The hard Drive..Deleting all partitions then installing Windows 7... Found Here: Clean Install Windows 7
