windows 7 build 7600

Thank you so much for all the input you;ve given, its helped loads! This place is great!

I've fnally got W7 recognising my 20gb barracuda drive and I've also got my dvd drive up and running. Those nVidia drivers also worked for my IS working, BUT....

I have to say, my pc seems like its juttering a lot. I mean, when i move my mouse about it feels like its druching itself through something thick and hard (if that makes sense) and now that the machine recognises the audio drivers the audio plays real bad, with crackling in the background and the speed fluctuates like it were being played from a record player!

For the time being im happy that its all roughly working though...but has anyone else had problems like the ones im describing?
