Windows 7: Serious driver problems? (Even my CPU?)

I re-installed using compatibility mode, and the drivers still failed to install.
I re-ran SFC, and it found corrupted files again, and still couldn't repair them all, and nothing was fixed.

Unfortunately I think you will need a Repair Install unless others have more ideas.

Now you have two choices, if you have a backup image i would put it in, if not it's clean install time unless you want to keep fighting a losing battle.

Hi Dancube.
I was a fan of Daemon since its capable of serving multiple virtual CDROM drive.
If you still want to use it try to reinstall SPTD (usually come along with Daemon)
But if it happened to mess up with your driver, better get rid of it.

I suggest you to use Ultraiso Version 9. It is small but powerful, able to make me get rid of Nero (for burning and managing ISO and NRG image) It is less than 20 mb but it certainly will serve you up to 8 virtual drive (but sure depends on the amount of available drive letters).
Remember, you have to run it as administrator to set the amount of virtual drive.

On top of all, it runs seamlessly with Win 8 DP

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Speaking of Windows 8, instead of re-installing Windows 7, should I just install the DP of Windows 8 instead?

Installing WDP won't bother you at all. All you need is just patiently try to get along with its different start menu and the desktop style (metro style) but many friends and I have it run since q3 2011. most of drivers for Win 7 work with it.

Sounds great, I'll probably just do that.
You can disable Metro, right?

Also, anybody else have any suggestions regarding my choice of OS right now? (Windows 7 reinstall or 8 DP)

I for one, hate Win 8 and the goofy Metro stuff. Without that uneeded part it seems like Win 7 with squared-off windows.
If you're in a reinstall mood give the repair install a try first but make backups of your data just in case.

Metro can be disabled.

I had similar issues at one time that Hardware devices are not working or are not detected in Windows fixed. You said you used a Fix It tool, but did you use this one?

Yep, that's the one.
Unfortunately didn't fix it for me.
