Why thank you, and yes you are correct about your computer supporting X64 (the processor is x64 anyways).

I'm still going through the pages while eating my meat lovers pizza but have you checked for any BIOS updates? This sounds more motherboard related then anything else.

If you could, also try using a different hard drive?
I suspect the BIOS there isn't an update for it yet. I haven't tried a hard drive, I don't have an extra SATA drive except for the one in the PS3. It could be the drive.
If theres one thing I learned in my entire life, when it comes to computers.. is to never rule something out unless you've thoroughly checked it.

Have you contacted your manufacture about a BIOS update and if ones coming soon? I contacted HP recently about my USB issue and they stated they'd be releasing a BIOS update to patch that, as well as fix a few other issues.

Well I have seen it many times before here in the last 10 months. Sometimes install works best with NO more than 2gb memory for the first install on win7.

I see you have 4gb memory. Can you take 2gb out & try install again.

Just adding a note to that, I have to do that when installing OpenSolaris. :| Seems to be an issue over both Windows and Linux (certain kernels).

To find any available Windows 7 beta drivers for your model, simply click the Download link, above, and select your model. While viewing the list of software for your model, you can shorten the list to only Windows 7 downloads by selecting "Windows 7" as the operating system using the "Refine Search by" filtering tools above the list of downloads. If "Windows 7" is not available as an operating system search filter, that means there is no beta software available for your selected model at this time.
It seems that only special models that Toshiba has a special mode: will be upgraded.

I could find NO ONE whom had tried the " UPGRADE" ?
So either this is a BIOS upgrade needed, or some other patch .

I have a post on the TOSHIBA site I am mp_ccs over there. I have tried upgrading all it does it take longer to get the BSOD in other words same thing. At first I thought maybe it was the memory I did run a memory test but I have not tried it with 2gb. It seems everyone with this laptop has the same issue. Also I originally started this thread back when 7 was just a baby. I have aslo tried the drivers Toshiba has posted for this laptop for windows 7. No luck. I have contacted Toshiba they will provide this machine with windows 7 support but they said probably not until November.

I will try it with 2gb, it takes about a hour to restore the system from the server so its not too bad.

Do not expect too much help for support on that issue. They'd likely end up saying "you'll have to live with Vista for now".

But hey, at least your manufacture didn't threaten to void your warranty for installing the RTM version of windows 7. (yes, mine did lol)

OK, seem some. Lets try a couple of things.
I have Win7 on a laptop with only 1GB memory. works well. (Acer).
also have Win7 on a laptop with 2GB memory, works well. (Acer).

1. can you boot to safe mode. Ahhh no drivers.
then modify the config system or set to log and check.
or
2. move to msconfig and check diagnostic startup.
reboot and then we can
3. continue from there.

I'm the guy that did 5 CLEAN INSTALLS in one day... to get it right. Same computer.

Funny thing about support from company's like Toshiba is I will have to talk to about 5 people before I even get to someone who even knows what there talking about.

You want me to modify the config to log and check and set to diagnostic start up? May only get one shot cause most of the time after I reboot I can't get back into the OS. I do have a Bart PE disk so I can get to the log files.
