It is an HP Compaq nw9440. 80GB HDD, 2 GB RAM. Nvidea quadro fx 1500M Video. Is is a clean install, partitioned and formatted from the win 7 installion (boot from CD). No RAID, just the HDD is SATA.
Installation is the 32 bit version, Windows 7 ultimate. MSDN release.

Connected to corporate DOMAIN.
Other people with problems are also running HP's (NC8430) on the same DOMAIN (However 2 others also with HP on Domain does not have the problem, they have Compaq 8710W's and run the 64 bit version.

I hope that is all the info required.
