Ok well device manger looks fine no errors

So is safe mode F8 the same as safe boot via msconfig?

Thanks for your advice

Since the computer was having problems with hanging while running Vista, and since you did a clean install of W7, and the computer still exhibits issues, then that raises the possibility that there is a hardware problem.

Did the Computer ever run correctly under Vista?

It would help us to look at this possibility if you filled out your "My System Specs" for the problem computer.

The computer will not be working too well during the test, cannot assign it to one in high priority

Safe mode has a good chance of success, I am leaning toward a driver, right now. Also a chance that it is hardware, since you had the problem before.


As I mentioned in an earlier post and now mentioned again by TVeblen it may be hardware. Follow instrucions and fill out specs.

Actuallly what I did was take my old vista pc and do a clean install of windows 7 and give it to my wife while buying myself a new shiny one. You can see how i'm not very popular!! So in fact the pc she has is theo ne I ran under vista with I think no more issues than anyone else running vista. Godo thought though.

I think that if you have read and acted on all the advice that was given in the previous posts, overnight, take the memory diagnostic test.

Just type that in search. It may be a memory problem.

In addition, when it happens, type event viewer in search and see what is marked as errors.

Oh, NOW we get the REAL story! You gave the wife the hand-me-down (that wasn't working well under Vista), tried to throw a quick spot-o-paint on the thing and make her happy!

Bad idea mate.

I think you would be better off to just bite the bullet and go buy HER a new machine. My wife's computer was getting long-in-the-tooth so I went out and bought her a brand new Inspiron just like mine (only hers is red and mine blue) with Win7/64 on it. She is happy as a clam. She's got the newest machine in the house instead of the oldest. The cost to replace was far less than the aggravation you're going through.

Quit trying to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse and just get her a new one! They just ain't that expensive any more!

Think, mate, think!

ran the memory diagnostic while wife not looking. It has restarted and gone to login page so does that mean it found no errors or is there a log somewhere? Thanks
