Windows 7: Unique problem

Im new here, as u can see! Im trying to fix, or at least detect my problem for quite some time now...

I have spend hours and hours googling my problem, but i didnt find single thread on the forums or article about problem like mine...

So, after many years of good service i decided to replace my xp with win7, witch i tried before (build 7000) and i was stunned! Win7 was finally (after vista) a great OS! In a few months of my testing of build 7000 i had no errors, no problems, its much faster than visra and xp and everything worked great!

So i decided to try the final version before i actually buy win7! And there starts my problem!
I installed wins, everything went fine... Windows booted fine and then after cca 30min windows simply froze! I cant move mouse, click, nothing but a restart on the case button!

After restart, same story again! Of course, my first guess was that i downloaded bad version of the wins, so i downloaded anther version, and then another, and then another...

I have tried cca 10 versions of win7 and every time i had a same problem!

So, the weirdest part is:
1. On win xp everything is working great, no freezing or any similar problem!
2. I have run memtest from dos over the night and i found no errors!
3. I have run disktest (tool to test hdd) from dos and i found no errors!
4. Like you could read above, i have used win7 build 7000 and everything worked fine!
5. And few of cca 10 versions win7 i have tried i got from my friends, and on their PC its working fine!

So plz, if anybody have a guess what could be a problem post it, im starting to be desperate!

Can you boot into Safe Mode to check Event Viewer>Admin view, and Diagnostics Performance log to see if a driver is the problem, then change it out?

i really do not think his bios is the problem. he had 7 up and running with no problems. his friend either gave him a bad copy or he did an upgrade that did not take.

I suggest you run the windows 7 upgrade advisor to check your hardware compatibility ?

Go to you Event Viewer, and in the left pane, go to Windows logs>Application logs. Any warnings?
Ill install win7 as soon as i could spare some time! I think ill install it tomorrow or day after and ill check this out!

I was doing a clean install each time!

Ok, but nothing there helps me!
As I said, i did a clean install each time! I think its not a installation issue, but hardware or software issue!

In a day or two ill try 2 install win7 on virtual machine and see if i still get "freeze"!

So, after a lot of forum browsing i decided to try something I read a while ago.

After clean install, my windows 7 were again freezing! I tried to disable all windows services! And after reboot, wins are not freezing anymore!

Now im enabling services slowly and trying to locate service that is giving me problems!

Does anyone knows what should I do when I isolate service that makes my system to freeze?

great bit of diagnostic your running

let us know what service when you find it and maybe we can help, it's likely to be an associated driver or component

I agree with ickymay. You may want to uninstall/reinstall the program, update the driver, or remove it completely.

It all depends on what the service is.
