Windows 7: Upgrading

7 Pro. 64Bit w/SP1
 
 

I forgot that I didn't update my System Rating, so this morning I tried & the computer froze up. I rebooted & installed Avast! Internet Security; did another reboot (as Avast! asked) & tried to update my System Rating again ... computer froze.

In both instances though, it froze in different places: the 1st during either Direct3D Texture Load/Direct3D ALU & the 2nd during either CPU/Disk Performance.

Anyone know a good, free way to partition my 750GB SHD into 250GB & 500GB? Forgot to do it before installing 7.

I haven't used it, but EaseUS Partition Manager is supposed to be good.

Free Download Magic Partition Manager freeware: EaseUS Partition Manager, Disk & Partition Copy and Partition Recovery Software.

Forgot to mention, I can't install Flash. Computer freezes before installaton even starts, whether I have it just Run from the web/save it for later installation.

[QUOTE=bobkn;2162251...I've never owned a motherboard with an onboard sound transducer that makes beep codes. I think they may put them on some server boards. (Vague memory.)[/QUOTE]

The MOBO in my Acer has one.

Earlier today I ran Windows Defender Offline ... No problems found.
Then I ran MemTest86+ ... no problems found.

Something went haywire b/c Windows would not boot-up at all, so I decided to do a complete reinstall from scratch. This time everything went nice & smooth, no hickups whatsoever & all updates went through w/o any problems as well. All seems fine now except I still cannot update my System Rating, the computer freezes during 'Windows Media Playback'.

Do you have BIOS set to defaults?

I never did get my freezing problem worked out, even had a computer store look the computer over & test it for a couple of days & nothing. The only conclusion we could come to is a bad Mobo &/CPU. May RMA both of them, not sure yet.

I'm going to live w/it for a bit, but I did start another thread here asking for help w/MSConfig.
