Nope you want 64 bit drivers on 64 bit Win7.

Use the drivers given by the installer, then get online to get latest from optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be imported from the SUpport Downloads webpage for your model computer or device.

Don't change drivers given by installer/updates unless performance requires it.

There is no warning mark on any of my hardwares under Device Manager.

To be honest. I'm about to give up on this computer. I've spend around $1200 on this computer and i get this for it. Thought about trashing it and save up for a new computer..

Been 4 months waste of money on this project

How many of the troubleshooting steps did you complete and what were the results of each. HD diagnostics?

You can't give up until you work through all of the steps to know that you've done all you can.

Check all of the connections, mobo ports, plugs, cables. Test the HD now.

Okay i downloaded a Hard Drive test. "SeaTools for Windows" found it under your link. i've splitted my harddisks in 2, i clicked both. then i choosed full test. Told me save the data i neeeded. Nothing important. I just reinstalled windows. It also told me it will take several hours. Should i stay off the computer while its processing?

What do you mean you "splitted my HD in two?" The procedure is to boot the Seatools CD and run Extended test on the entire HD.

Are you reinstalling now? At what step did the Win7 installer say it will take several hours? Clean Install Windows 7 . I have never heard of this. Did you follow the steps shown in the blue link? When did it give the message?

What i mean is i have a C and a D drive. So i keep my windows on C and all my installs on the D drive.

when i opened to link you sent me to test my HB, i downloaded the one for windows7. "SeaTools for Windows 7" I the do the following tests on this program

--

- S.M.A.R.T Check
- Short Drive Self Test
- Drive information
- Short Generic
- Long Generic
- Advance Tools

- Fix All --> Fast, Slow.

Run the Long Test and report back results.

If you are saying you have programs on the D drive these will have to be reinstalled after Win7 is reinstalled to C. You should always back up your data on the same HD when doing a reinstall.

Once you have a confirmed good installer you should try wiping the HD first, disconnecting all others then booting the installer to clean reinstall: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

I only got 1 HD in my computer, Just splitted in half. Before i reinstalled my windows i formatted my D drive to make sure it was clean of data. Then i reinstall my windows on C.

I will get back to you with the infomations about the test.
