Windows 7 SP1 x64 build 7601.21701
 
 
7068 bugs!

Anyway one found anything new already? I notice couple of things is still not fixed and some are. But also found new bug that it wasnt here in any previous build.

I have set displays to turn off after 15min. However when i come back and try to wake them up sometimes randomly picture freeze. I get initial desktop, then everyting freezes for about 15-20sec (and YES i have disk sleeping off) and at that time i usualy start to press ctrl+alt+del and it wakes up eventualy after like i wrote 15-20sec. But this thing is compleatly random, sometimes it happens sometimes it doesnt. Need to try with only one monitor to hopefuly isolate the problem.

The two bugs that I had on 7048 are fixed. The dual monitor bug and Epson Scan Utility would not run. Everything is working now.

Another bug that wasn't happening on any previous build:

If you try to install from a bootable USB stick, you get an error during installation's first screen that CD/DVD required driver is missing.

The workaround is to put any cd/dvd in the dvd drive and restart installation. Once the DVD drive is not empty (!) the isntallation proceeds fine..

I've had the same thing happen with me mate! My Monitor went into standby and I couldn't get out of it at all! I ended up pressing the power button, then it came on as it was shutting down.

I upgraded from 7000 to 7048 to 7057 and now to 7068. All were x64. Now for some reason task manager reports 7.4 gigs of ram. All other OS'es reported the proper amount. WEI does report 8 gigs tho...

Well then perhaps it was just an error of the moment. I didn't try again after reboot, I put a DVD in the drive and it worked after reboot so I figured that was the problem with its solution.

So we're good then

Most of the third-party gadgets are off-screen...Well, actually not off-screen, but off their background placeholder, making them losing their initial settings and giving a pink background instead.
