I've decided to install the x86 version. I'll let you know if I keep getting that problem.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 | Windows XP Pro x86 | Windows Vista Ultimate x86

I have an acer desktop and it used to freeze on me too. It was a brand new computer and after some time of use, it would freeze. This was on Vista. We may have different problems, but I just wanted to say that I had a similar issue. I don't know how I fixed it, after some time, it stopped. Good luck with installing the x86 version.

Windows 7077

I used to have a similar problem on an old build while watching video. If I pushed the video window to the edge of the screen the 'maximize window' thing would kick in and 50% of the time my computer would freeze. Sound would keep playing and the hard drive light would still flicker but other than that it was dead.

Disabling the maximizing thing fixed it, although it doesn't seem to happen anymore, but that's probably because I changed my graphics card from intel915 to atix1950pro.

Not sure if yours is the same problem, but it wouldn't hurt to disable it to test.

Windows 7 RC Build 7100

Well, been back up and running for about 2 1/2 hours and I'd have got it by now, but haven't so far. All drivers and base programs (Acer utils and Avast AV) are installed. I have a feeling its down to the Intel Motherboard/Turbo Memory and the Intel SATA drivers I hadn't installed. I have a vague recollection of getting this happen when first putting Vista x64 on.

For those with Acer Aspire 59xx/69xx and 89xx laptops, I'd recomend installing the Acer drivers for everything, and not relying on the Windows ones.

I'm on x86. No problems so far...

I think it has to do with that Intel turbo memory driver I couldn't find for the x64 version.
It's available for the x86.

Windows 7 RC Build 7100

These should work:

If you've got the Intel 965 Mainboard these should work also:

Mainboard drivers - Intel_PM965_GM965_8.3.0.1013_Vistax32x64.Zip
Turbo Memory Drivers -
These drivers are 32 and 64 bit

Win7 RC1 64 bit

Not sure if this is related to your issue stan? I too am using the 7100 release (fresh install) on my desktop. Upon trying to download Adobe Flash Player I get nothing? it loads but never works.

I've unloaded and reloaded several times but every website I go to, it won't respond. The only thing I could come across so far is Adobe may not have Win 64 bit application yet?

Windows 7

I have the same problem, random freezing and the hdd light remains on.

I'm running on Windows Seven 64bits (7100), on a Asus G1S (no Intel Turbo Memory).

I suspect NOD32 V4 to be the problem, I uninstalled it to see if the problem is solved.

The problem is not solved, it's not caused by NOD32 V4...

If someone has an idea...
