Windows 7: Win7 Pro freeze

I had blue screen four times last night. I thought those were caused by the driver of the abit wireless PCI card. I installed the driver from Abit website last night, then I started to get blue screen on startup. I had to go into the safe mode to uninstall the driver and reinstall the old one. Then Windows can not find the wireless card?! I had to boot to Vista to acess internet.

There is a workaround posted here:

Looks like a patch is coming at some point.

Yes, I have one. It is a PCI-E card. I will take it out and try. Looks like I need to order a long ethernet cable.

Just uninstalled wireless card. Then the system froze 10 minutes later after startup.

I don't like your chances of all this NOT being caused by hardware problems.

The machine has at least one ReadyBoost device - can you remove it, at least temporarily? Two of the crashes occurred while working with that device.

The first minidump (the one you zipped up by itself), is strongly suggestive of disk problems. Did you have the Hitachi drive plugged in at that time? (Thu Oct 29 13:00:33.288 2009 (GMT+11))

One of the minidumps points at potentially unreliable RAM. Is the machine over-clocked? Is it adequately cooled? DId you run RAM diagnostics on it recently?

Thanks for your advise. I have removed Hitachi harddrive as I knew it caused part of the problem. I will check my RAM tonight. I am using Vista now on the same desktop and has not had any problems for 2 years. Why Win7 would fail so many times with the same hardware? Many people call it Vista2.0, I guess they are wrong......
