Windows 7: BSOD after upgrade to Windows 7 from XP (Acer Aspire One)

BSOD after upgrade to Windows 7 from XP (Acer Aspire One)

Hi all,

Firstly, thanks a lot in advance for helping me out - I've been through what feels like nearly all the other threads in here looking for a solution and I am overwhelmed by the generosity and helpfulness of people here.

So here's my problem. I upgraded my Acer Aspire One netbook (A0150) to Windows 7. This went fine, had a few issues getting Windows 7 SP1 and Microsoft Office SP2 to update via Windows Update (several failures) but got there after multiple tries.

However, since then I've been getting regular, random BSODs. I've tried most of the ideas suggested - ran memtest86 about 5 times with no faults. I had Avast installed so I uninstalled that and changed to MSE, but still get BSODs. I've run sfc /scannow (no problems detected). I've also done a clean reinstall of Windows 7 but get the same problems.

So I've reached the limit of my knowledge - any and all help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks again

Steve

A Netbook doesn't make a good candidate for the full Win 7. New Netbooks that have Win 7, have the Win 7 "Starter" edition. Most do not have enough memory to run any version other than the Starter version. The video, on most, will not support Aero. I read somewhere (can't find it now) that Win 7 Profesional requires a minimum of 2GB of RAM.

Drivers for the hardware can be another issue with the XP hardware.

I have a 2010 model Samsung Netbook and it came with Win 7 Starter. It's slow but it runs it, however, I would not even consider upgrading to Win 7 Home or any other version.

I have a Dell mini 9 that I bought 2 years ago and did some testing with it last year, played a DVD with Windows Media Center, surfed the web, played some Netflix.
This is on an Atom N270 @ 1.6Ghz with 2GB, 16GB SSD, Win 7 Ultimate, Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive.

Thanks for the replies. It actually runs Windows 7 really well, if anything its faster than it was running XP (although a lot of this is probably due to clearing out all the old data and programmes). I've had it up and running Access databases and large Excel sheets too which have all been pretty fast.

So it seems like the drivers might be an issue then - does anyone have any ideas as to which drivers might be causing a problem?
