    Hey guys :)

    So i installed Windows 7 a month ago and i couldnt play games as it froze my computer and i had to hold down power button to turn it off. So i uninstalled it and went back to vista (which is crap), Today i installed it again hoping that the issue would be fixed but its still freezing. Ive tried loads of drivers.. Its still doing it, i just cannot find the problem.

    Here are my specs:

    Model: Toshiba Qosmio X300
    Operating System: Windows 7 RC 7100 build 64 BIT
    Processor: Intel Centrino 2 2.40 Ghz
    Memory: 4GB Dual Channel DDR3
    Display: Nvidia GeForce 9700M GTS

    If you require anymore specs dont be afraid to ask.

    I would be so greatful for any help or solution to this program as this is putting me off purchasing windows 7 in october, its an amazing operating system. its just the fact i cannot play games on it which makes me dislike part of it.

    If it's purely related to games then try reposting this to the Games subforum, maybe you'll get help a lot quicker if you specify which games are giving you trouble? I have had issues with certain games myself. Some running ok for a while then BSOD, others crashing Windows when switching from fullscreen to windowed modes. Good luck!
