Swamp56 Posted October 4, 2009 Share Posted October 4, 2009 I downloaded and installed the RC version of Windows 7 to check it out. I heard amazing things about the stability, driver support, and speed of the operating system as a whole and I got sold on the idea of it being better than Vista (anything is). I installed Windows 7, and in 3 days, I had 25 blue screens @_@. Upon checking the minidump files of most of them, every single one of them was from something different, and I went through various stages of installing, uninstalling, and reinstalling almost every driver on my computer to no avail. All of my games started freezing at random points, my video software was crashing the computer, and the computer would start slowing down and blue screening when I opened up windows. It got to a point where I had to revert back to XP. While I will admit that Windows 7 is much faster and better with driver support (installed my printer w/o having to install a thing!), I kept having other driver issues that I couldn't resolve for the life of me. Anyone else have this problem? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
