I contacted my OEM and they said all PC components are fully compatible with Windows 7. Still, on the CD I got with the motherboard I only found drivers for Windows Vista... My motherboard isn't recognized by Everest, and I can't seem to really figure out what my motherboard is. I might try to find out what it is, but for now the solution looks like dual boot - Seven with Vista. If you think of something else please respond... Getting an OS just as I want it to be ain't easy work, so I really wanna fix this

There are alternatives to Everest to obtain this information

Take a look at SIW or Belarc advisor if both these fail there is always the "open the case and look" method

Another answer to your particular issue, if the drivers are not yet available, is to simply disable the Sleep/Hibernate function which is causing the issue or check the settings in the Bios to ascertain if a modification here may solve the issue

Bookmark these (based on your current system specs),

1. Intel - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx - for yours you want teh Intel 3 Series chipset driver

2. Your ATI card - https://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-c...ndows-7-a.html - just keep an eye on this thread as the ATI video drivers get updated once per month.

3. Realtek audio - Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

As to the issues you are having, it almost sounds like something in Windows is broken. Did you install 7, or did it come that way? Might be worth making a full backup (7's backup will work just fine for this), and doing a clean install with all drivers the latest you can find and see if the problems persist.

The computer had no installed OS. I put it 7600 x64. Disc was burned at snail speed, kept in perfect conditions. I'll try to repair via the install CD, but I might format and install a later build/edition if available. No need to worry about the data - I keep all my important data and files on an external USB HDD. Will post after attempt of repair. If repair doesn't help I will post after reinstall. Now I'll go check my data.

Not really... My computer has a 3 year warranty currently undergoing. I bought this PC the 5th of August so it's still kinda fresh... I can do whatever I want, but I need to get the PC to the store (where I got it) and I have to ask them to open the box AND keep my warranty. I know you didn't get anything, but I'm sleepy and I don't think about what I write...

Last question: Could this be caused by a hardware malfunctioning error? I know this usually ends with a BSOD, but who knows. I'm mister software-click-click not hardware-...whatever... .... .. ..... blah ...... .. .

Latest drivers for the ATI HD 4850. Don't see the reason for your question though... I have fully listed my system specs.

Has it done this right from the installation time? Do you have any weird Themes installed?

I have heard of similar issues with certain video cards/driver combinations, hence my question regarding the video card and drivers.

If it has been that way since the get go I would recommend backing up and wiping the slate clean. Also, you may want to consider installing the RTM as opposed to 7600.

I just saw something interesting while removing a program I no longer need:
Performance slowed down by Aero-untitled.png

Even though some might think this is a stupid question... should I remove this? It may be possible for Windows Update or some other cr*p to have installed this, since I have and Intel based configuration. Only difference is I DON'T STICK WITH nVIDIA! I'd usually remove this immediately after I saw it, but since the situation we've got here is pretty tight I just thought I'd ask...
P.S.: I also ran Memory Diagnostics Tool and repaired my Windows via the install DVD, but it didn't work.
