Can doing 9 restarts(warm reboot) + 3 clean installations(1 each day)?

Hello I have some questions to ask

1) I have recently done a clean installation but due to updates and drivers I had to do 9 warm reboots and I'm worried if this could damage.

2)Basically I had to do 3 clean installations(1 in each day) and I'm worried if this could damage the laptop and 3 previous within 2 months because of installing drivers in correct order so my question is could this damage the laptop.

Laptop is quite new

Welcome to Seven Forum!

1. No it won't, new installs often require many reboots.

2. Doing many install is not harmful either. But this begs the question, Why? A new machine shouldn't need so much in so short a time. did you damage it or install some crapware that borked it? some download site are getting nasty with crappy bundles.

You are not doing something right.

Stop installing drivers the way you are doing it.

1) Install Windows
2) Install your graphics driver directly from the manufacturer`s website
3) run windows update until there are no more updates left to install.

4) Have malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials installed for security and that`s it.

After this you should have no more problems with your pc.

Every expert here will agree, running windows update will do NO HARM to your pc

There is no such thing as installing drivers in a correct order. When a device is plugged in, windows installs the drivers and the device works. Windows 7 is SO EASY to install and use. I do not understand why you seem to be having so much trouble.

Take a minute to tell us what exact problems you are having and we will be glad to set you straight.


It`s not gonna damage your pc, but it sounds like you`re not having any fun with your pc.

But I see in your other thread that you have been installing chipset drivers? Why was this necessary? What problem did you have that necessitated this?

You should STOP what you are doing which is unguided and random, instead follow these same steps to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

You will get and keep a perfect install exactly to the extent you use the tools and methods given.

Especially follow the steps given for drivers which are handled differently in Win7 than in XP.
