Windows 7: Video and touchpad drivers Wont load every other boot

Windows 7 Ultimate
Video and touchpad drivers Wont load every other boot

I have tried searching for this in the forums but I cant seem to find an answer.
So I figured Id post it.

Im running into a very strange situation.

Im running 7 Ultimate on a Lenovo 3000 N100 Laptop that I use for work.

Originally I had the RTM that i revieved from work (HP). Once 7 was released to the public I purchased the Ultimate anytime Upgrade to make my copy of 7 my own.
Here is my issue, With the RTM installed I had no problems. But once I entered my new key I started having boot problems.
Every other boot, when I get to the login screen It seem that my graphics driver and my touchpad driver did not load and I must shut down and reboot.
when I reboot it then works fine.

i have done a Fresh Install 3 times,
Downloaded updated drivers for my chipset, graphics, and touchpad.
Could it be a BioS issue?

I was wondering if anybody has ever encountered this or knows how to remedy this.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate


I found a Bios update, but when I flashed The graphics/touchpad issues were done and gone.

But now I have no sound.. found and installed updated Realtek driver, but still NO sound!!!

I rolled back my bios flash to the previous bios because I cant deal without sound.

I find it kind of disturbing, that 41 views and not one response...

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

This is what I would try. Uninstall all sounds drivers, then update to the newest bios.
On reboot let windows install the driver for the sound and see what happens, you might want to check the new Bios flash to make sure it didnt disable the sound card once done.
