I just installed a fresh windows 7 copy! I was satisfied with it and formatted the windows vista off my drive.. I love it, its like so fast and sleek. Im in <3 with it. But im having lil problems.

  • I cannot access My Computer, the *My computer* window either hangs or takes unlimited times to load
  • Some windows like, Notification Configuration, Control Panel. Doesnt seem to open.
  • Im having trouble using MagicDisk
  • Drivers of HP PSC 1402 and HP DESKJET 1300 Series Are not being installed
  • C:/ Drive doesnt seem to open

Please help!! =)

Thanks in advance.

Might help to say a little what your system consists of ... cpu, ram, graphics card etc. I am using win 7 on an ancient 1Ghz Amd, with 1Gb ram and an NVidia GeForce 5200 Agp video card. One problem which I've narrowed down to the video card is that the game BeJeweled 2 Dlx would lock up the system.

With Win 7 on a laptop that has a 1.6Ghz Amd, 512 ram and Via S3G video ... everything runs fine.
Nah, not a problem with computer specs. Cause vista runs okay with it..

i have a advent 8117 laptop.
My computer opens, and then when i double click any drive

The green thing goes from left to right as in loading.. and it never loads! :S
Yeahh!! 6956! I cant even install HP PSC 1402, HP 1300 Series, MicroSD Adapter doesnt open (I.e I:/ drive) SAme things happens, it justs keeps on loading
