Windows 7 help please! - Page 5

post #41 of 47
Did you try re installing windows7?
Before you install any games or other programs, first make sure you have the latest drivers and windows updates. I have loaded windows more times than I care to admit, you don't always get a good load.
Not sure if this is your problem but it's what I would do in your situation.

Well I guess you should re-install your OS and see if that would help.

Yea ive installed windows several times and fully updated all my drivers and windows updates. Just now I got the bright idea to switch my video card to a different PCIE slot just to see what happened. I booted up fine and was actually able to view flash videos and even load up a game. This lasted for a couple of minutes before youtube froze up and my games would not load. Any ideas on these new developments?

another update. I tried using a HDMI cable to connect my monitor and was unable to get a signal. Do you guys think it's my Video Card? Also, I did a wipe of my old video drivers and installed the latest ones from AMD.

You should be using the first PCIe x16 slot closest to the CPU. That is the default. Have you tried contacting your video card vendor to see if they can give you any help or RMA it? If the HDMI port doesn't work it could be a bad card, or it could be a setting problem. As far as videos you may need to uninstall/reinstall or update your Flash software and other video software.

Well I switched it to see if maybe it was a pci slot problem but I switched it back to the first one since I had the same issues
