1. Update your system specs. The link is in my signature.
2. Provide a lot more information. The little you've provided doesn't help troubleshoot your problem.

Hi and welcome to seven forums

Sanity I cant promise. Fixing your computer we can probably help.

I need some info. your win 7 dvd did you download it? from where? is it 64bit or 332bit?

What application did you use to burn the image?

More often than not failed installs can be traced to bad dvds or players

let us know

My appologies, i dont know why my edit did not make it in.. regardless.

typing this form different pc than install attempt so will give specs as close as i can get. OS = Win 7 64 Full Home Premium store bought, Asus P5Q turbo mobo, Core 2 Duo E8400, Nvidia 8800 GT 512, 4gig RAM, onboard audio (VIA), HD = ? atm,

bought all the HW about a year ago, ran XP woderfully, ran Win 7 RC 32 so wonderfully that i thought to take the jump into the full product and 64 at the same time to take advantage of the HW i recently bought.



Here is the situation
  • After any CLEAN (formatted fresh) install get Win Explorer has stopped working (any system attemps to restart fail). Often other windows services stop working (Media Player, Desktop
  • On many of the attempts to reinstall i get various failures at various times when applying the manufactures 64 bit drivers
  • On other attempts to let Win select the Drivers it wants I will get different errors that hang the system.
  • Win recoveries do not work
Have done about a dozen installs now trying various cobinations of Windows selected and vendor HW drivers to see what gives.. but nothing seems to work.

Any help is appreciated.

^^^ please put that in your system specs in your profile. That way, people don't have to scroll through the entire thread - they can just click the "My System Specs" link at the bottom of your posts.

Have you removed all unnecessary hardware - all drives except the system drive, USB devices, sound cards, etc? Also, have you tried dropping down to 2GB RAM? Have you updated your BIOS to the latest version?

Clean fresh format is good !

Disconnect anything extra not needed for install ! USB stuff, printers, TV, extra monitor, Ext HD's, NO TV Tuner card installed.

Everybody thinks I'm Crazy but I have seen MORE first installs work with only 1 RAM stick, than with several sticks installed ! You can always add Ram later after it is up & running with out problems !

Kegobeer... specs are updated.. cheers!

I have stripped off all extra HW - other that what is listed in my current specs now - from the very start to get a good install beacuse i knew i needed to get all the 64 drivers added one at a time (i usually have 2nd monitor, printer, headphones on front jack and RAID morror set).

I did not do a bios update as you suggested, but will do that now..

Again, thanks for taking the time!

Make sure you also remove all but 2GB of RAM. If Windows 7 installs correctly, you can then shut down and install the other 2GB.

While im waiting on the current install to finish (with only 1 stick of ram =2gig) and with updated bios, i wanted to ask about the Asus win7 64 chipset drivers.

Whenever i tried to install these previously they would walk you thorough the intro screens then when it "installed" it IMMEDIATELY went to the installers package "successful" screen. When i closed out the installer, windows told me that it was not installed properly under the current configs...

If i selected the "use recomended and reinstall" it would repetatvively grind my HD but no action on the the screen what soever and the install process showed still running in taks manager (with an *32 beside it for a 64 bit driver package?!?!?!). If i selected "it installed properly" I would still get all the Windows Explorer errors,etc...

My question, is, should i be using the manufactures drivers or stick wiht the ones windows gets going in (there are no issues reported in Device manager)?
