Windows 7 64b Ultimate

Hello Mastermind, welcome to SF!

That is old stuff... I'll have a look at the dump just to check but I think chances could be poor. In my experience, if a W7 install on an old mobo does not work straight away... you'll keep on having problems. In this case ASUS (your mobo manufacturer) does not even provide W7 drivers for this mob: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download A8N32-SLI Deluxe

Windows 7 64b Ultimate

There are some drivers that need to be updated:

HTML Code:
RTL85n64.sys Tue Oct 03 04:36:17 2006
Razerlow.sys Mon Nov 07 07:33:11 2005
RTL85n64.sys : RTL85n64
Razerlow.sys : no fix for this, W7 does have probs with older drivers

And a load of drivers that are off but should / would normally be updated with Windows Update...
Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.
