Windows 7: Windows 7 - Not responding when installing programs

25 Sep 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

I'm sorry. I read your post as stating that piracy was the cause of the problem described here.

Windows 7 x64 (build 7600)

Nice that you responded.

Snuffy, why should the motherboard cause any problems? It doesn't matter witch mother board is, because there is no direct connection to OS that is running "on" this motherboard.

torrentg, yea I use NOD32 on both computers and other programs like iTunes, M$ Office, VS 2008 Pro, Adobe suite.
All disks are 0% fragmented so this couldn't be the reason.

zigzag3143, one computer has 2 GB the other one has 4 GB. And when they are at idle they use like 60% of memory but when installing they use like 97%+ of memory.

mckillwashere, oh I forgot to write down that I have 64 bit version. And it's not piracy because I haven't used any of the activators or anything illegal.

Okay, One reason you see such high memory usage is 7 has a different style of memory usage it pre-loads commonly uses applications but drops them immediately when that space is needed. But I still dont see or understand why it would be freezing up during application insallts unless you have an incompatible mobo. Except for this when I reinstalled & on both my laptop and desktop at the same time I forgot to get my keys. So I had to install without imputing a key which is what I assume what you did. I could never get a video driver to install right and It seemed like everything acted weird until I activated it and rebooted. Btw my machines still aren't the same. I'm considering reinstalling again and imputing the key during install to see if that makes any difference.

Surely you are aware that mobo's do have DRIVERS for devices.
Now if your MOBO is not supported by nor is compatible with Win 7 RTM (maybe it worked on beta versions). HENSE DRIVERS are over 95% of the major BSOD or problems with Windows (any version) and x64 is worse.

so I'm back to two things...
1. you say your DL version is from TBP. could be borked.
2. your mobo is NOT WIN 7 COMPATIBLE. THEREFORE your drivers are not either.
3. In fact Win 7 HCL does not ever say your mobo will have problems, it simply is not compatible.
