windows 7 freeze up

hey guys, im having quit a problem with my pc and windows 7. It was going very well but since a month or 2 my computer seems to freeze at the start (when the desktop appears). What is weird is that somtimes i have access to the desktop but not the toolbar with the start button or vice versa. If i clic on alt contr del and start the task manager everything is fine.... for a couples of minute. After i did that a couples of times everything seems ok until i let my pc on idle for like an hour and its back again. Somtimes i have to reboot it to solve the problem.

im running win 7 7100.

ive heard it might be related to setpoint or a acpi thing but i dont know what is acpi so ...

if anyone have a clue plz help im about to trow my rig by the window lol

Hello, SoLiD and welcome to the SevenForums.

You mentioned Setpoint. Do you have a bluetooth mouse and / or keyboard? Setpoint drivers have some compatibility issues with Windows 7. The topic is discussed on several threads, here's one for you to read.

I would first try to uninstall Setpoint and try to use mouse and / or keyboard with native Windows drivers. It could be enough to fix your issue.

Try and come back if this does not solve your issue.

How did your comment help the original poster? If you don't have Technet / MSDN account, the only completely legal and officially released version is RC build 7100.

A lot of us Win7 users want it without any hacks, cracks or leaks. 100% legally. That's why I'm still running 7100, waiting October 22nd to get my legal retail box.

If you try, uninstall Setpoint and reboot. Let Windows find the devices and install the drivers.

Yes, Windows 7 can be bought from October 22nd. Since 6th of August it has been possible for Microsoft TechNet / MSDN subscribers to download it.

Yes, you were addressing me. In your words, I'm uncivilized because I use RC. If you are calling me and others uncivilized because we want to be honest, it really gives me right to criticize your words.

In my opinion, you really should think a little bit more what you say. To do something against the law, including copyright law, is your own decision. It doesn't concern me even if I don't accept it. I read these posts about leaks and cracks daily without blinking my eye, never commenting.

Don't insult me because I want to do it my way. I'm not insulting you whatever method you used to get your copy.

lol i was kidding (old spice commercial????).... obviously you do whatever you want, but to play the victim role is a bit extreme. relax, it's the internet, it's not that serious.... i didn't mean to ruthlessly attack you, and everbody else. if your "e" feelings got hurt, it was unintentional........

Could you check from Device Manager if all your devices are working correctly?

It's OK. You told your opinion, I told mine. I just wanted to make my point clear. Playing with words, we could say that the people refusing to use anything else than officially released and / or bought products are IMO really civilized.
