network and sound card drivers always get borked

I've had Windows 7 since the Beta and RC. And all of a sudden the last 4 days I've been having problems with my network and sound card drivers. Every time I boot up I have to enter device manager and reinstall the drivers. Every time. They install fine but it's just a pain in the ass. Anyone ever have this problem?

Okay, well a little bit more then. I triple boot Ubuntu Win 7(64 bit) and win XP SP3. I've been running this since Windows 7 pre release. Ubuntu and Xp have no problem, only Win 7 keeps loosing my network and sound card driver.

I will check hdd manufacture website to see of any updates. I'm looking for some help in troubleshooting the issue.

Haha, thanks for the help, but that doesn't help me at all. I have a triple boot system for 2 yrs now. I just wonder why my sound and network drivers all of a sudden started tweeking. I Google it.

I didn't mean to throw a huge checklist at you.
In your control panel do you have a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy Manager?
I have Realtek HD Audio Manager in my Control panel. Also in Control panel/Troubleshooting there is Hardware and Sound link to check out various aspects of sound.
I am going thru things with you as if I had your problem and things I would do to resolve this issue.
One thing you will learn about me is I don't quit until I get it fixed.
It may happen tonight, tomorrow but I will get it fixed.

FPS drop because of sound card / sound card drivers?
I've recently upgraded my os to windows 7, and noticed a significant fps drop in all games I've installed. The problem seems to come from the sound card. I've disabled it in device manager and I gained a steady 15-20 more in most of the applications. Any idea what to do? Is it a driver issue or...
