When in doubt, always use the drivers that came with the computer.

(I suspect you meant Hewlett Packard since it's been about 10 years since I've seen a Packard Bell (no relation))

No joy. In fact, making any entry at the designated registry location actually removes all WinRAR related options from the right click menu. Thanks anyway.

As near as I've been able to determine, the discrete graphics have been included for one reason only: To provide DirectX 11 support. Everything else will be done by the i7's internal graphics. If the...

Yeah, that seems like a good way to track it down. Thanks for the suggestion. I'd hate to think it's a driver that's causing it - I can't remember ever seeing a driver with an applicable option.

Annoying "open lid" sound.

Before I say anything else, here are the steps I've already taken:

1) I have gone into Control Panel | Sound | Sounds
2) I have highlighted the "Windows Logon" event and selected (None)
3) I...

I didn't watch the video, but the latest version of Catalyst actually has LESS options than earlier versions. I forget precisely what they are, but one of the options removed does include the exact...

Driver updates won't change BIOS options. There is a BIOS update from (roughly) October of last year, but I doubt it changes the graphics options. I think we would have heard about it if it did.

Did this problem begin immediately after installing new RAM? If so, remove it and try booting. I put new RAM in my system, and it took over 5 minutes just to get to the password screen.

Just out of curiosity, how big is the MIG file likely to be? Not everyone has more than one partition or an external HDD.
