Windows 7

I Installed RC1 7100... it worked very smoothly for two days without restarting.. and I didn't update the drivers yet...After first boot of the system it started to freeze again :/ In safe mode it does not freeze... I start to think that its is the GF 8600gts thats causing the freezing...because overheating? In savemode the fan is on full speed whole the time and in normal start it is in some guiet mode.. propably I'l go and buy new one or jsut buy a new fan.. of just fanless zalman and try again...

Windows 7 RC

I'm having same issue with browsing the internet and freezing on my Lenovo R61 laptop with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Win7.

After about 15-20 minutes, the browser will randomly freeze, then everything else in Windows starts becoming unresponsive (it's like a chain reaction), and everything will stay frozen for 2-3 minutes. It always comes out of the freeze after 2-3 minutes and everything starts working/responding normally again.

Had a similar problem, ( IE Not responding) so looking further, and comparing my notes on items installed. I found and removed a tweaking Internet program.
Strange all my "not responding" stopped. Them 3rd party program can and do cause MANY PROBLEMS...suggest
make a note and uninstall, run then uninstall another- when you find the last uninstalled program stopped the error.... NOTE it, then start adding the others back... That is also called Beta Testing.

Windows 7 RC

If anyone happens to be experiencing freezing on Lenovo laptops, READ THIS:

2 days after installing this driver, I've been "freeze-up free!" *knocks on wood*

I would usually freeze at least a couple times per hour before for 2-4 minutes, and I haven't frozen once since I installed this driver.

Here is the link to the Intel Turbo Memory driver that fixed the freezing for me on my Lenovo R61 model:

Lenovo Support & downloads - Intel Turbo Memory Driver for Windows Vista - ThinkPad Reserve Edition, R400, R500, R61, T61, T61p, T400, T500, W500, W700, W700ds, X200, X200s, X200 Tablet, X300, X61, X61s, X61 Tablet

Just an FYI -- after installation, it asks you to restart your computer a second time after the initial restart, which you do need to do.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Retail RTM, Ubuntu 9.10

When I get PC's with connection problems i do 3 things first

1. reset browser (in advance tab in internet options)
2. reset ip stack (open a cmd window as admin and type: netsh int ip reset reset.log)
3. make sure ipv4 is on

If it is a configuration problem that usually fixes it. After that start messing with drivers. A lot of ppl install a lot of addons and junk to the browser that breaks stuff.
