Well it turns out that the problem is my graphics card, ATI Radeon 9200. I did a lot of searching and this card has given many people running Windows 7 heartaches. I installed the Windows XP drivers
, “You can’t install through the install pack, you have to extract and install through Device Manager.” The computer blue screens on restart and shutdown with the drivers installed but runs good, with the exception of my posted problem, in Windows. I uninstalled the drivers using my favorite uninstaller, “Your Uninstaller 2008 Pro” and ran the card with standard VGA. No blue screens anymore. I ran a rating on the system and came up with these results.
The short story is, I need to upgrade.
