Windows 7: Escalating problems until...

15 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate N 32-bit


That copy is installed for about 7 months.
In the past several months it would sometimes get stuck in the win7 screen (first screen after bios) or took several minutes to load. Mostly it loaded fine.
Then recently a new problem emerged - sometimes everything gets stuck for a while then comes back to life (or sometimes doesn`t). Whether in game (wic) or not. Whether the cpu is 100% or not. The sound usually gets stuck with it on an intense noise.
From time to time it got me a blue screen with an error and started scan disk. It also started scan disk sometimes after pressing the `reset` button (when completely stuck).
Today windows didn`t load at all and gave me that screen :

Iv`e tryed to follow the steps but to no avail.
I have a suspect - my WD1000GB HD or connections or the `artificial` SATA drive I have installed it with. This is beacause when stuck I touched the SATA wire and it seemed to help unfreeze. Also it would sometime not detect the HD from BIOS or ask for a proper boot device but usually solved just by restarting.

It`s a Pentium4 3.0, Asus P5RD1-VM, 1024MB DDR2. Windows Ultimate N.

Great thanks for any help,

By the way, I run XP on the old HD on the PC and it`s quite fine.
Any suggestions please?

Windows 7 Ultimate N 32-bit

I just formatted and installed afresh but - it recognized only 3 of 5 disk drive (all of same HDD).
Before that I resized two of the drives with `EASEUS Partition Master 8.0.1 Home Edition` but I did so for the drives he actually recognized. (I accessed those drives through another OS which is installed on another HDD).
It would see them in disc management but it can`t assign drive letter, it says : Disk Management Console view is not up-to-date
even the program can`t assign letter ot mess with the size.
