Windows 7: Windows 7 randomly hangs

Do you have info or a link on how to install the latest build, maybe 7232.
I did an update this morning but it is still 7100.
I have data and Ubuntu 9.10a so I would like the latest build of win7 without losing this.

Or 7260 maybe?
I am running 32bit.

You can do a clean install on the currently Win7 partition and you don't loose anything else.
pm sent for links.

Thanks again masterB!
I used the upgrade option rather than clean install with the 7260 .iso.

No data was lost and I have not had it hang since then.

Problem Solved

Hi Guys,

After my last post, I decided that instead of replacing my 7100 build witha 7000 I would install 7000 on a second hard drive. Well that paid off, cos within hours of building 7000 and getting it looking as I wanted it, I got the first timeout warning, telling me that 7000 would expire in 11 days.

I took this as an omen and looked deeper into my hanging/freeze/lockup problem.

I removed my Belkin Wireless adapter from the computer, and the problem has resolved completely. No hangs at all. In fact 7100 is starting to look like it was worth the upgrade finally.

My only issue is that I now have no backup internet connection, my primary being a wired adapter onboard, and this belkin being my secondary.

Reinstalling the card and refreshing the drivers resulted in lockups again. So it is repeatable and thus confirmed as the root cause.

So the ralink driver definately seems to be the culprit.

Still did it on 7100, but after a while, I found a solution

My machine, as a lot of other intel based machines has HPET on board, on my motherboard it has a switch for 32bit or 64bit mode, but my BIOS had the option in a weird place, so try to look for that in your BIOS if you have issues, happily using it right now ^^

CLASSPNP.sys is a plug and play file for things like USB drives, eternal HD, external devices using usb. Could you try booting in safemode (hit F8 repeatedly when booting) Let us know if you can safe boot. do you have a backup that yu can resore from? if you can boot in safe mode you can check your system files by runnning sfc /scannow.

Yes, I'm able to run win in safe mode, but it also take long to boot, and when It finally load, and I get into the system, I made something and it inmediatelly hangs.
I'll made the scf thing before making anything on the machine.

Thanks for your help.
