Machine came preloaded with Windows 8 Home/Basic Edition, I messed up with it a little while and decided to install Windows 7. It was about a year ago. This summer I decided to purchase Windows 8 Pro & SSD for this laptop, and so I did. After a while I found out about some nasty bugs which I couldnt resolve so I decided to go back to 7 yet again. I installed it from a microsoft ISO, I just googled it and found a highly upvoted post in ms-forum with links on 32/64 bit ISO's.

Yes, there was a bug/conflict with windows 8.1 and this particular model, in short - 8.1 couldn't recognize second GPU, so they released a VGA BIOS fix for it.

Looks like you have a cracked copy of win7 which we cannot support

If I'm wrong then please explain where you purchased the Win7 to install.
I have 2 instances of Windows 7. First is the disk in the black curvy box I got with PC that I bought in 2010, I paid for licensed Win7 (at least it was in the bill), they installed Windows 7 Ultimate on it and I also received this disk. Second is the ISO from microsoft's website which I activated using my key.

I'll try that but I dont think it will work, it looks like some hardware conflict with something in windows...

Ok thanks again for the information.

Follow post #30 and we might get a little closer to a solution. A member more versed in reading MGA said "There's something not quite right about that report". If the ISO you downloaded was corrupted in some way, then we'll never solve the problem without a clean reinstall.

So let me make sure I understand.
Your machine had Win8 home edition installed when you bought the machine and you also paid for a Win7 license (Ultimate)
You also purchased a Win8 Pro license when you bought an SSD.
You then used the Win7 license to install Win7 using a downloaded ISO.

I'll wait for you to complete the Daemon tools, torrent and HWinfo uninstall testing and then wait for the new MGA after installing KB971033

I already installed new Win7 on a different partition, this time from my disk, not this ISO.

Anyway, installed KB971033, here goes new report:

You'd need two Product Keys to activate both installs. Why did you keep the old install?

If the problem persists while running with a boot disk then its most likely hardware, probably your GPU failing.

If not what I would do is look over carefully the steps for doing a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and if you find you didn't follow those steps or use those recommended tools and methods only, then I'd do it over with a fresh ISO from the tutorial. This time correctly delete all partitions during the booted install to get it cleanest.

You can make this a diagnostic install by only installing your network adapter driver if necessary to get online, then enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) to install all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates, with reboots, until no more are offered when you Check for Updates.

Then test performance and Aero to see if the problem persists, before checking Device Manager for any drivers needing imported.

Test performance awhile again after each program is installed. Try to pinpoint what is causing the Aero issue.

Hey, I totally forgot about Peppermint USB you suggested to try. Though I only found Peppermint 5 through that link in the tutorial, guess no big deal, right? So I made bootable USB with Peppermint 5, and couldn't boot it, its just stuck right after I picked "try it live" on a grey screen, tried it three times - it never loaded. So I decided to remove second GPU and voila - it loaded pretty fast. Browsed a little bit there, not found any graphical bugs, not even in browser. So I decided to boot Win7 again with a single GPU (although I did it already) and lag still occurs... I guess we can count both GPU's out, or not? What do you think?

Yeah, I will do a clean reinstall tomorrow, seems like I have no other options left...

Also, would it be wise to try and install windows 8 and test that out? Cause I dont remember this bug in W8.

Sure, you have a license. You can even create two partitions to Dual Boot Installation - Windows 8 and Windows 7 or Vista.

The test doesn't eliminate hardware as the cause and in fact points somewhat to the second GPU. Can you try a disk to see if you can truly rule out the hardware?

Why again are you running two GPU's? Seems like a recipe for trouble. I'm not a hardware guy so will ask a good one to look in.

I'm going to back out since Greg is advising you. Too many voices often confuse things.

The new MGA report is not promising, although it did resolve the Retail / OEM issue from the first MGA. It's not a fair comparison though since you reinstalled using the disc on a separate partition.

@Greg: I think the best way to untangle the various licensing / MGA reports would be for DarkWorld to focus on one install and only one install.

I suggest using the downgrade option on the Win8 Pro license (downgrade to Win7 Pro). This will require contacting Lenovo as the option applies only to Win8 preinstalled OS
Understanding downgrade rights

I'm not sure what Lenovo would do since the machine came with Win8 Home, not Pro - Win8 Pro was a retail purchase.

At any rate, I'm not sure I trust the Ultimate key - the two MGA reports using different media gave odd results.

I'll keep an eye on the thread, but won't post unless I see something - this will keep the chatter down.
