[PROBLEM]Incompatibility with Windows 7?

#1
Hello everibody!

I installed WIndows 7 Professional Edition on my laptop: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. and I was surprised how good is this Operating System. But after a couple of days my WIndows broke down. I atach some print screens: RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting.
First time I beleve that was a virus, so I formated all my hardware(physical format). I installed it again, but after couple of days it happed again. I formated again. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate, Professional x64, x86 on my system but it happed the same.
When I installed Vista it didn't happed any more. Now I have WIndows XP Professional with sp3, but it's slow.
P.S: On my desktop I installed WIndows 7 Professional x86 and it runs perfectly, and it is not a very powerful PC. I have only 512 MB of ram.
On my laptop I installed Avg, Bitdifender, Avast, Avira all free edition(not all at once) and nobody found anything.
All the OS are with license(I am a student).

I think some of my driver is not compatibe with this OS. If it is an virus how do I remove it and why Vista didn't broke, or XP

I don't have the Windows 7 logo on my notebook, but on AssUs.com - A flexible domain name for sale I found drivers for WIndows 7 x86, x64. I beleve it's compatible, and when I run the compatibility wizard I found that my video card can't support Aero(but I user aero) and some unknown compatibility about Management Controller(RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting)

Thanks for that..
If you checkout the screenshot you'll see that there are drivers available for win 7. I'd go through the whole list and apply whats necessary, bios included. The link for the download page is here:

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

I looked through your errors and they do look fixable... I'm just wondering whats happening for them to happen in the first place..

They appear from nowhere, I don't know. One teme during a film. another time during listening music, during worcking in visual studio 2008.

P.S: My interner connection collaps. I could not navigate through the internet to look for answer.
I do not know why, and I am very shure that is not a virus.

Your sure your bios is the latest version?

I don't konow because I didn't update my bios after I installed Windows 7. It might me.
This errors could be because of that?

It's certainly a possibility.. Your bios should always be the latest version anyway (usually)... I'd try updating it and see how you fair then..

I'll do that where sp1 will appear for WIndows 7, now I'm staying on Vista. I'm very pleased with it.
