Windows 7: Windows 7 Freeze and Possible Time Server Problems

I hope a simple battery change will solve the problem. I had forgotten that I went through this with Win 98 many years ago.

I don't think it is Microsoft that does not support Blue Ray; rather it is the Blue Ray that does not/has not yet upgraded for Win 7 if indeed there are no compatible devices listed. However, I find that both version 6 and version 7 of Cyberlink are certified Win 7 compatible. And Roxio is listed as compatible; but not certified.

Windows 7 Compatibility for Cyberlink Blu-Ray Disc Suite version 7.0: CyberLink. Drivers, Updates, Downloads

Windows 7 Compatibility for Roxio Creator XE Blu-Ray 2010 version 10.3: Roxio. Drivers, Updates, Downloads

I know that I have seen Blue Ray running on Win 7 machines.

i'm no expert on the microsoft / blu-ray situation but i see it brought up a lot on another forum i am a regular contributor to Fact or Fiction: Microsoft and Blu-ray - Chris Lanier's Blog

plus the compatible products you list are both software, there is no compatible blu-ray hardware listed. I too have seen blu-ray playing within windows 7 (on my own system) but i don't believe its officially supported.

For the freezing issues try DISABLING the task in the screen shot. I have a media system that was freezing randomly or so I thought it would freeze some random time after this task ran. Once I disabled it my media system has not locked up.

Interesting read. Thanks for the link. That lets me know that I don't want Blue Ray.

Do let us know the results of trying WindowsStar's suggestion.

ok an update:
  • i have switched the winsat task off. it didn't sound important
  • time zone is correct as UTC
  • the reason i wasn't able to find any dumps previously is because it wasn't set up to capture them! it is now and any in future will be uploaded
  • it seems my blu-ray player is supported in win 7, its this one Windows 7 Compatibility for LG ELECTRONICS GGCH20L 4X DVD Burner: LG ELECTRONICS. Drivers, Updates, Downloads it says it should run without any additional software but if I rename CLBSTOR it doesn't load. does the driver need unregistering in some way?
  • later tonight i'll swap the CMOS battery and check the bios settings and then leave it off so i can run the ram tests in the morning. motherboard is only 18months old though so i'm not sure its this. still its a cheap thing to try!
thanks for your help

Maybe your player uses CyberLink drivers. Maybe that driver will work without conflicting. Keep us updated.

right i think i have the CLBSTOR problem understood. The player is compatible with windows 7 without any additional drivers, but only as a DVD player. To get blu-ray support i need Cyberlink PowerDVD or equivalent. My version of PowerDVD is not compatible with Windows 7, hence the driver issue.

So i'll buy the new version of PowerDVD in a few weeks, for now i've renamed the driver so it'll be out of action.

next, CMOS battery

Thanks for the update and that makes perfect sense. Be sure to let us know if the CMOS battery solves the time problem. Don't forget to set the time correctly in the BIOS after you replace the battery.

right, an update:
  • good news - memetest ran for 9 complete passes (8Gb taking 17 hours) and zer errors
  • bad news - changing the CMOS battery hasn't changed the problem with Windows Time Service not running. I still get the same error message when i am in the internet time tab of time and date, yet it still starts when i tell it to sync.
any further suggestions? thanks

sounds like a bad mobo to me... If the CMOS battery change didn't fix the issue, sounds like a bad board?
