Windows 7: Showstopper in 7264 - be careful ...

01 Jul 2009   #11

Windows 7 64-bit (7127) & Mac OS X 10.5.7

So what is the most recommended version at this time? 7260?

I currently have 7127 but am wondering if it's worth upgrading to 7260.

If you don't want the newest leak with the showstopper, then and I see you have x64, the recommended would be 7232. I'm sure most others that tried the x64 7260 would agree that 7232 is better.

I did hear a rumour MS abandoned 7264/ removed it from consideration as it was too buggy.

7600x64 RTM

Reckon I'll stay put w/ 7100x64 until there's a good OEM cracked file out. Why bother when it's running fast and smooth w/ my two screens and sound card.

Can anyone else verify this?

And yes, I'd be running the x64 version.

+1 for 7232 over 7260 in X64 flavors.

I also just heard about a CPU heat issue with 7264 when Overclocking. Not sure how many of you OC here but I have my Q6600 OC'ed from 2.4 to 3.6 and I noticed 5*C to 10*C higher temps at idle, so I will probably go back to 7232. GPU seems normal so far.

Anyway if you OC or if you want to check your temps out even if you do not I recommend Realtemp because it will show temps on all cores and the cpu load. If you do not know your CPU's rated temp, just Google Overclocking "your processor" because I don't think I can link to another forum.

The Showstopper's Issues.

I have been Debugging many Issues in many Ways and on a few different Computers and found the main and same issues for Freezing, Crashing and just plain corruption and file loss.

My main system I test on is a (My Build) Gigabyte Mobo 965P-DS3, Intel Q6600 (2.4Ghz), 8Gig QCZ (800) mem, 2-nVid based Sparkler 9400GT (1 PCI-e and 1 PCI) graphics cards, 4 monitors (2-19" wide {1440x900}, 1-19" St 1280x1024 and a 17" St @1280x1024) and 8 HDD's at a total of 6TBts.
The onboard net is a Marvell Yucon 88E8053 PCI-e Gigabit EC. I have 18 fans in my system including dual and triple fans for my HDD's (mostly 10mm's and some 40mm's), My Rear and Side fans are 120mm's and a 80mm's. I am currently building an AC cooling system for my CP's, this will keep them down to 30ºC or lower.

In most of the bug issues are always related to the VISTA_DRIVER_ID #'s and and compatibility problems related with hardware drivers not properly functional.

The Issue I have found with the problem yáll have talked about on this thread is mainly related to Overclocking problems that are because of over heating/BIOS controllers.

If you Overclock more than 10% in CPU sets and BUS sets then you cause Over Voltage and Over Heat issues, The BIOS then runs a speed reset process (mostly is Automatic, some can disable or manually control it), when this happens the OS's (Win XP, Vista and Win7) hits DPC(Deferred Procedure Calls) and Hardware Interrupts heavily, in net transfers, this can cause the freeze and corrupt any of the files being transferred, in graphics operations this will cause jitterbugging and vid failures.
This is not just happening in Win7, it also happens in WinXP and Vista.

If the Temp jumps above 50º C then your BIOS begins some steps in controll changes, by the time it reaches 55º C the system begins the CPU turndown process.

I never recommend the Overclocking, but if you do I do not suggest you go above 10% increase. And maintain a reasonable cooling set.

Outlook 2010 - Showstopper -- gone back to Office 2007
Hi all Serious showstopper for me in Office 2010. With IMAP the default works differently to 2007 - in 2007 deleted items just have a line through them until you PURGE the items. In 2010 the purge item on the menu doesn't exist so the default DELETES the items. If you opt for...
