Tina,
I would like for you to fill out your system specs.
Please follow this write-up and use SPECCY to gather info.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Ř Manufacturer and Model OR Custom build.
Ř ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

With Speccy, you can select with your mouse/touchpad info from the display
and paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

Thanks.

That info satisfies nearly all needs.

There are a couple of other hardware points I'd like to investigate.

What that means is:

SPECCY | FILE | SAVE SNAPSHOT | SAVE button

That will generate a file with the extension of .SPECCY.

Would you please zip up that file and attach to your next post?

The "snapshot" format does not include your product key which is excellent since that product key is what you need to install Windows.

I could ask many questions and have you run several scripts to gather all of the info but this is simpler.

After the last boot (about 10) minutes ago, I had a freeze.
Attached are the events from the eventviewer short before the freeze was.

Tina,
A good idea would be to once again capture the critical and error events so that I have the before and after list.
thanks,
Oh yes, will be back in about 2 hours.

I think I did that. See my last attachment (last post).
Or did I understand you wrong?
