Windows 7: Install windows 7 if I have a serial, but not the DVD?

Good suggestions to run the Windows Memory Diagnostic test and study repeat errors in Event Viewer.

You might want to reinstall using IDE controller setting since your research points to this solution.

Upon reinstall, use Internet Explorer to start then add programs one a time using restore points and with enough time in between that you fully check performance. Only add other browser(s) last.

I checked the event viewer before, found nothing of interest.

I have also reinstalled my SATA and IDE controllers, didn't help either.
