Windows 7: New Installation Running Unusably Slow

22 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7

I think I figured it out. I don't know why it causes a problem, but I had missed disabling my onboard audio, and that seems to have fixed it.

Of course now I don't have sound, but that's a different problem . . .

ok - maybe you need to look for better drivers for your onboard audio...

try vista ones if you can't find 7 ones.

Windows 7

I need to revise my previous post.

I thought had it figured out. As it turns out, it is not completely fixed.

Windows itself works fine. Any applications (as far as I have tested) that were installed with the Windows install work just fine. However, when I tried to install firefox things go crazy. The installation seems to work just fine, but when I try to launch the application I get the same behaviour I was getting before. Everything just kind of freezes (but not quite frozen just very, very busy)

I'm still trying things, but I'm kind of at a loss.

Windows 7 x64 finally!

bloewen, I am running Win7 from an IDE 40G drive as well in one computer without problems, so I don't think it is necessarily a problem, but can it be caused by the IDE drive? Maybe you need drivers update for that?

The reason for the suggesiton is because you have two applications now with the same problem and that is one thing in common between them

Have you checked to see if your graphics card can handle the 64 bit version of windows 7, as i just found out from a really good friend that its my graphics card causing the problem. But most likely it will be if it supports win7 and is higher than a ddr type of memory.
