need some help
will someone help me escape my windows7 nightmare??
6-8 months ago i had a working win2kpro machine. started noticin that i was runnin out of drivespace and also that alot of my software was becoming unsupported. it was time to upgrade. so at first i just installed a bigger hdd and filled up on ram. turns out win2k can't see a 1tb hdd... only about 132gb of it. so i checked the rest of my sys requirements for Windows 7 and it said my comp was compatible.. so i purchased Windows 7 ultimate. i did not realize that when it said "at least 128mb 3d graphics" that MY 128 mb 3d graphics did not count. or my sound. ohh.. Windows 7 saw my hardware and my drivers, it just refused to use them. so i installed new "Windows 7 compatible" sound and video cards. that solved that problem.
btw.. my computer also had began crashing within 2 hours of OS install. i thought.. i did go from a 32 bit to a 64 bit OS... maybe my proc's gettin hot. and it was... about 8-10degrees hotter. so i installed a bigger sink n fan. that cooled it off but did not stop the crashing. i was also using a used 450W power supply that i had rebuilt probly 6months earlier. i didn't have time (or will) to test the p.s. any further so i bought a new 630W. did not help. tried to install on my old 40gb ide hdd and it crashed during install. i am now tryin the 32 bit version and it so far seems to be worse.
have i reinstalled Windows 7?? yes
have i tried installing Windows 7 on a different hdd?? yes
do i have all the latest drivers?? yes
have i tried system restore?? yes
did i try the official Windows 7 compatibilty testing software?? yes
is this my first computer build?? no
