Odd W7 problems - advice needed...
I recently upgraded my system to Windows 7 Pro. H/W is an Asus P5Q Pro, 4Gb and an Intel quad core which has all been running XP fine for about a year. Bought a new 500G drive to put Windows 7 on.
Installation went fine and it found drivers for everything except the NIC which i got from the Asus site.
It ran mostly ok for a few weeks but with the occasional 'stop dead' - no BSOD, no nothing. Then it started to occasionally hang for about 20 secs at a time.
Ran HDTune and it found some damaged block - but I'm not sure if they are really damaged or if Windows 7 has just decided to mark them as such.
Memtest says all memory OK.
Updated to mobo drivers from Asus site and things got much worse. e.g. CD drives disappeared until I rolled back the Marvel drivers. Now VERY flaky.
I'm resigned to doing a complete re-install and I'll get a new HD and new graphics card (Currently FireGL V3350 which has no speficic Windows 7 drivers).
Stick with the P5Q?? (Worked ok with XP)
If so, stick with Windows 7 installed drivers or go with Asus ones? (Caused grief this time).
I don't mind the rebuild but I'd be happier if I knew what was causing the problems
