Clean Install Windows 7

You can back up windows/system32/drivers folder and will have all your installed drivers. Then if any are missing in Device Manager after clean reinstall, browse to that folder to pick them up.

Be sure to use Drive Tools to format before install.

the freezing seems random, it hasnt done it that much today, should i just leave it and wait for an update or something to come out, i just feel like reformatting and reinstalling is not gunna change anything, i am not trying to be stubborn, ive just done this so many times it feels like nothing is going to work, ive tried regular upgrade, fresh install, factory restore then upgrade, and it seems like its working better now, and everytime i upgrade it wants me to change my bios, the bios that i have now is F.52 9/3/2009, it came off the upgrade cd they sent me with windows 7, but on the actual HP website after i put in my model number the bios they tell me to install is F.4a and the date says 8/2009, are you saying to format my drive and only install windows driver and updates first then do my system drivers? kuz then there are problems, i have to get the ati catalyst control center off the upgrade disk, but it seems to be not hanging up as much today, what should i do?

the only thing my event viewer says happened is

A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Windows Error Reporting Service service to connect.

hi sweetie


this is what i think you should do?

It is so worth a try

go to device manager

go to disk drives

find out the number and google it - i am running a hp and mine is seagate

use there website to find the hard drive software


burn the disk - bootable

erase your hard drive -don't know if you can hang onto recovery=- back up just incase

i did an x and o reformate - best one i did - remote took 2-3 hour on a 250 g hard drive


run the driver through

best installation i have done.

I had a virus problem and reinstalled 7 about 10 times done them all

still running off this on no errors

yes you can save the whole lot - soft ware and drivers

go to the hp forum to find out where - sorry can't be bothed finding it

it is common knowledge on the hp forum - it is something like ssw

good luck
