Looks you want to reinstall all over again? Yes, a clean too far....

Maybe try a repair install first before reset all:

Do yourself a favor and do not tweak Windows 7.

It is already perfectly balanced and only needs normal settings changes.

Man,I will heed yor advice.
I shall take it slow and easy.I don't know what I did wrong,but I do know that I won't do it again.

I got the DISKPART done.What a time consumer,huh?
Then reinstalled.I'm back to square 1.I won't mess with anything untill I get some more DVD's for images.

Any answer regarding that product key?When I enter it my COA,it reverts back to the OEM key.Must I call MS activation every time I install W7 on my PC?I,ve done it three times now_clean-install.I only called the first time.I want to make sure I know all my options before I call again.I have done research here and elsewhere on the subject,yet can't seem to pin down the answer.I'll keep looking.

Hey-The silver lining is that I'm not intimidated by this anymore.

Like my little brother says-Don't sweat the petty stuff,Pet the sweaty stuff.

Hope all is well.

I'm back.

NoN,I really don't know the specifics to ask at this time.

Been up all night again messing with this thing!It's a trip.

I will take your advice.leave it be for a while.

My PC crashed on me earlier.No blue screen.I think my HD overheated.Any way I can tell for sure?I didn't get any error pop-ups or anything.Good thing these notebooks have safeguards against overheating.

I certainly don't wish to kill my HD messing around like that.Where do I look for the cause of this sudden shut-down?

Always.

Could be in Event Viewer....you might recognize where it is (see screenshot):

Already heard that kind of story...wild shut! Go buy a notebook cooler like a "Cooler Master(tm)", might be the only safe way to cool it...I've as exemple "Cooler Master(tm)" NotePal D1 (Cooling effective -10 approx), but my computer is a 14inch screen, you might need larger one. As time getting hot with Summer....You might fried it!
