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.

Microsoft said:
To upgrade your PC from Windows XP to Windows 7, you'll need to select the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. A custom installation doesn't preserve your programs, files, or settings. It's sometimes called a "clean" installation for that reason.
