4. Looks like a Vista SP
5. Multiple BSOD's spanning from doing nothing to gaming and making DVD's.

I don't wanna get banned... but those are some of my cons thus far.

1. Thank goodness for that.

2. Does not.

3. Again, not.

4. I didn't know service packs had looks.

5. Never had a one since using beta 7000 in January.

If you're experiencing all that, sounds to me like you're not doing something right.

His BSODs are likely occuring from a faulty driver...not Windows 7's fault

Also the RAM usage on idle...there is a difference between RAM Used and RAM cached. Is your looking at your RAM cached and it is high than that is natural...it is a product of Superfetch's design (a fantastic one at that). That cached RAM will be allotted to an app that needs it immediately...

Having difficulty with the OS is certainly not a bannable offense. Nonsense.

Consumes a LOT of RAM at IDLE is a learning curve that we will explore later. Sluggish can be addressed. Looks like a Vista SP - yes, many will grant you that. Multiple BSODs can be addressed.

Two weeks ago, you abandoned a hijacked thread where you were going to generate a BSOD/dump file. Today, you finally came back. Good move starting your own thread- you will receive focused professional attention if you conduct yourself maturely. H2SO4 - a hard core professional engineer will probably be helping you with your thread as soon as the time zones catch up with. In the meantime, ZigZag has identified a potential candidate for your frequent BSOD problem - Nero.

All of the professionals reviewing your case (and there are more of us reviewing it than you know) are aware of the challenges you are experiencing and your reaction to them. Stick to the facts and we should have you running ship shape in no time.

You would not be here if you were not interested in making this work. Be patient. It has only been two hours or so since you properly presented an addressable concern.

My drivers are up to date as of this post.

Antman - I'm not in any hurry to get this rig up and running like a champ. Just baffled that even a few simple things can trigger that beloved screen Today is one of the first times I've used it since the previous BSOD's. And since the other previous posts from a while back, I haven't been able to replicate the same BSOD (nothing was updated mind you). I'll be sure to back it up with a dump file should I trigger the BSOD. Today's BSOD, just so happens to be the same day I bought installed Nero 9.

I understand. It only takes one thing to generate the screen we love to hate. I have to retire for the night.

We used to have a really cool dog named Kemo. He was awesome - before he got carried five miles away by a tornado. He wasn't quite the same when he came back. I started calling him KemoTherapy.

True story.

No point to be made there.

That screen makes me go ape... well I can't say the next word but you know how the saying goes. But it makes me that much more infuriated when you can't replicate the problem when you want or need it to. Sure enough, soon as I disable "auto restart", it won't do it!

Thanks for the help and understanding thus far. Price to pay I guess for being somewhat of a power user!

Going back to this...

Other forums I'm used to posting at... their staff members want you to use the search function, rather than just starting a new post... regardless if it was 100% relevant or not

Interesting name you gave to that 'thumbnail'. Which specific versions?

Why not post some pics of Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit, running similar apps?

With 'Pinball', maybe?

Those were shots with both OS's just at idle.

edit - (from my initial post), since this IS a forum to discuss a microsoft product... it's probably best to keep it related huh? If you want the pics, you can PM me. I'm not going to "advertise" in a thread of the differences anymore than I already have.
