Updates

This is going to suck, but if you want I suggest that you install each update individually and after each update create a restore point and reboot and install the next one. Or install all of them and see what happens.

I'm calling the ball...one by one it is. Any suggestions on order? Device drives, then security, then remainder? Should I test in between?

Ok then, one at a time.
Start with the security updates, then move onto the second screenshot.
I have a hunch and I hope I'm wrong. But I'm wary of the update for your GRFX card. Also, I seem to remember you have huge external drives that we have not begun to install yet?
If the updates install successfully then move onto the drives and install them one by one.
I will be going 10/7 on the side and I will be back at 19:30 Hours. So if I don't see anymore posts I'll know you were successful.
If you have any issues I suggest you review the action center and review the reliability report.
So I'll be back at 7:30PM

Regards,
Adrian

After some further testing, it might be the tuner card, which would be weird since it worked in the RC 7100, so I uninstalled it and removed the drivers. External drives are configured without issue so mooving onto updates.

All Important Updates are installed and system seems stable. Moving on to optional updates and then to drivers...

Best not to change drivers from what Win7 installer has provided unless performance issues require it.

This is not XP or Vista. MS sponsored the partnership with all manufacturers to build Win7 drivers so has them in the installer and via Windows Updates first, since they paid the bill.

Check for missing drivers or those in error in Device Manager, find them on the Support Downloads webpage for your computer model.

I agree and I haven't installed any drivers from any site other than through Windows Update or directly from Gateway, minus one short-lived install. I completely agree with you...

All non-driver updates have been installed and still stable so moving on to drivers next. Monitor, Mouse, Video Card, and Tuner card will be the order...
