That points to a driver. Did you keep the drivers given by the Win7 installer and quickly updated via optional Windows Updates, then only import those missing in Device Manager?

Users can get in trouble with Win7 if they used XPired methods to change out all drivers. Win7 is the authority on its own drivers until performance points to problems with one.

If this behavior started after install, See if you have Restore Points to go back to the point where it started then install drivers one-by-one with time to check performance. Do the same with other Updates, in small groups if necessary to rule them out.

Work through these troubleshooting steps which can be done in Safe Mode to see if clues can be developed.

I'd consider a Clean Reinstall following these steps to get a perfect reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

Before reinstalling check for newer BIOS update, Clear CMOS - Reset BIOS to Optimal Defaults, set SATA controller in BIOS to AHCI.
