Windows 7: Performance issues after motherboard change

Performance issues after motherboard change

Hi all,

I have been using W7pro retail on an asus p5 deluxe motherboard for some time.

recently I have had video outages which I eventually narrowed down to a psu failure.
(the board would startup, drives and fans spinning but no post or video - as if the entire back panel was knoced out!)

In the interim I have a motherboard with integrated gpu - a gigabyte g41m-es2h

It did the same syptoms as described above, which told me it was a psu not a gpu issue which I first thought. To eliminate any doubt I also re-installed Windows 7 afrer easy transfer all the users.

I only have the base system and MS office installed now until I clear up some of these niggles.

I have the following issues:

1) Upon booting, Windows 7 seems to spend a long time looking for the network connection wheras on my old board it never used to. anything up to a minute, and while its doing this it takes over the machine so nothing else will work.

2) Screen flicker and poor display performance from one of the user accounts.
  • I have three user accounts; admin (admin); myself and my partner (regular)
  • the screen is a samsung syncmaster 204B, with optimal resolution set to 1600x1200.
  • On the admin and myself account I can have the screen set to 1600x1200 with no problems. however on partner account, I get issues with flickering and loss of resolution.
  • I've tried to update the drivers from the intel website but this has not solved anything, making me think that it is something in the user profile which is upsetting matters.
  • When we set the display to 1280x1024 it's fine and behaves ok.
Windows update at times refuses to update! it's all up to date now, but it threw up some interesting error messages.

If you could shed some light on these strange occurences that would be very helpful.

For a start why are you using an RC Build, 7100, its well out of date.
It should be Version 6.1 (7600)

Look at my specs

Are you using both onboard LANs? If not, disable whichever one you are not using in the bios (if you haven't already).

I've never really heard of this type of issue affliciting selective user accounts. The only possiblity I can think of is to create a new user account. Does it happen in the new account? If it doesn't, I would just rebuild your partner's account.

No telling without more info. What are the error messages?

Did you wipe the HD before reinstalling to possibly overcome conflicting or corrupt code?

Check your Event Viewer>Admin View to Google repeat errors for resolution. Ditto the Performance log on Advanced Tools page accessed by clicking WEI score link at Computer>Properties. Look for cued issues at top of Tools page, then Generate A System Health Report.
