Nothing to test win 7, only your hardware.
Read SFC /scannow and follow the directions there.

I have read the thread. If you have done restores and a clean full reinstall of Win7and you have the same problems, you have done something wrong along the way. You may be installing some borky software too.
I bought the win 7 disk from Microsoft and have used it several times and it worked fine so I don't think that is it. I done the install twice. The second time I deleted all partitions Nd re partitioned just to be sure because the reformat and clean install didn't seem to help. I'll try the hardware tests and post here as soon as they are done or before if I get post notifications.

Download, install and run CClearner.
Run the cleaner portion thereof.

AFTER that, execute following:

CCleaner | Tasks icon | Startup tab | click on Save to text file button (bottom right side)

Using the PAPER CLIP icon in the top panel of a Message Reply window, attach the .txt file generated by CCleaner.

Yay! I finally got this fixed! Sorry it took me so long to get back with you. It quit working completely so I have been working with it and was able to fix it. I deleted the partition and booted and attempted to run without any OS or partitions (outside of default reserved). Then I created a new partition and formatted about 10 times. To overwrite anything existing. After doing this I was able to run a full install just fine. I found out that it never really completely installed the entire time I have done this even though I deleted and re-partitioned. I know this because when I was installing it said my windows key was invalid. I later after reading found that the disc I have is an upgrade. :-| Oh well I wont dwell on that. I now need to access the recovery partition that contains the windows vista install info. (windows vista home premium 32 bit) I know it still exists I just don't know how to access it. Any ideas?
