Windows 7: Windows 7 RTM Overheating Problem

13 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

I could be completely wrong but it appears to be the driver for the smart card. Either it is not playing nice with something, or vise verse. The smart card service wouldn't be coming on unless the driver sent some kind of notice or something...

Since Microsoft doesn't support an upgrade from the RC to the RTM, it could be the cause of your problems.

@logicearth That's what I was thinking. The weird thing is why the 2nd sleep? First sleep must be creating some condition that the 2nd sleep compounds. Once I have some time, I'll check for new smart card reader drivers. For now I can live with the smart card service disabled.

@pbcopter I may be mixing up my terms on the upgrade screen. I'm not really doing an upgrade from RC. It is where the old Windows is moved to the Windows.old folder and a new clean windows is installed. I believe this leaves me with a clean registry, clean windows files, etc... I'm probably confusing people by saying a clean upgrade. On the setup screen it is the "Custom (advanced)" option. It does not keep my files, settings or programs. Sorry for the confusion I couldn't remember the exact terminology till I looked up a screenshot.
