Windows 7: Computer slow starting after VGA driver install.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86
Computer slow starting after VGA driver install.

Hi guys,

I have recently bought a notebook, it's the HP 15-n267ea with Windows 8.1 pre installed. I can't get on with Windows 8.1 so I installed Windows 7 Home Basic x64 Edition. I went to HP site and downloaded all drivers needed but after installing the driver (Catalyst Control Centre) for AMD Radeon HD 7600G the startup takes a long time to boot.I have tried the driver from HP site and from AMD site and neither seems to work, well they work perfectly except a very slow startup. What could I be doing wrong? :-)

As this is just a new Install there is some thing very wrong ..

It is not a Driver problem ... Where did you get the OS from ? ..

Check in the Resource Monitor under the Tabs Cpu and Ram ...

To see what is causing the high usage ..

Clean Install - slow, driver issues
Hi all I recently did a clean install of 7 64bit. Easy enough, no problems. It is terrible. It frequently lags severely just while having multiple tabs open in Firefox. Could this possibly be a driver issue, and if so, what drivers? Also, my computer frequently operates in the 90 degree...

Computer is slow to respond BSOD upon trying to install updates/FixIt
