    Did you make a clean install or an upgrade - a clean install to a formatted partition/drive is strongly recommended.

    Have a look in device manager - see if any devices have an exclamation mark against them indicating a problem.

    (windows.old) means you've done an upgrade. If you've upgraded from xp then this is the source of the problem.

    Do a clean install of 7 with formatting the partition. Back up all the data you need.
