Well I meant that the Beta will have some glitches, and that may be causing it. Other than that I don't know.

See if this relates to your problem.

Also: I know there is a command to repair system files, but I can't find it. Its something like sfc/ sannow or something but I dont think thats it.

It is /sfc scannow

You can also use the disk checker to check for errors.

Id bet its some software, check task manager when the pc is acting up and see if a process is spiking up the CPU usage (When it lags). (Right click the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and go to Start Task Manager, then go to the Processes tab).

Did you install any of the HP apps onto W7?
There probably problems there if you did and I would suggest not installing any of the HP "helper" apps that Vista came with, on W7. Like their HP Quick Launch bar, it may be incompatible (in part) with W7 from what I've read.
Also, you can use msconfig to shut down your startups and reboot to see if this helps. If so just add them back one at a time and reboot between adding one, until the lag comes back. The last one you loaded before the lag started again is your culprit.
