If you have 64bit, install 64bit drivers.

Use the drop down window to select windows 7 32bit.
You should install the items listed under the driver tab there.
This page shows only drivers that are not contained in Windows 7. is what it says.. oh and which ones specifically?
I'm installing a few but should I install the multiples?

I am not familiar with that 3g pack. You can't hurt anything by trying generally driver installations will just refuse to work if it's the wrong version or device.

Hold your Windows key+Pause Break at once to show system spec. This will tell you your Windows version and whether 32 or 64 bit.
If you can find the make/model of your drive, we can get a utility for you to check it with.

Which suggestions have you followed? Where and how is your music being lost? You need to be specific about your issues, "slow" and "it crashes" is not specific enough to provide any real help.

Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

OK then! Here's exactly what it does! Everything will be running just fine, I'll be using my Zune software, (this usually happens while syncing my zune, but it's happpened while I was online too, so it's not from the Zune.) Then it freezes, the Zune program, then eventually everything else. Then the mouse eventually freezes. You can'g get it to turn off, or anything. I know it's not the harddrive, because I switched out harddrives yesterday to see if it was, and it still crashes, any suggestions?

Uninstall Zune and test again. again, what tests have you actually done, other than guess?
