    Hello there everyone! Windows 7 has been great..... BUT .... I'm having some serious freezing problems with it. I have tried just about everything!

    -Swapped out GPU's .... Nvidia GTS 250 and an ATI card... most current drivers everything... still froze.
    -Tested both of my RAM sticks (XMS2 Corsair 4g (2 2-gigs) 800 mgz.
    -COMPLETELY wiped my system which worked for about a week then the freezing began again.
    -Virus tests with the latest Kaspersky.
    -Downloaded ALL current drivers for everything!
    -Switched to a different Internet (Internet explorer and mozilla to Opera) still didnt work.
    -Ran heat tests and everything topped off around 40 C.. just fine.
    -Ran some diagnostics in the support center but it said everything was just fine.

    Don't know if this will actually help or not, but your motherboard has had three bios updates since it was last flashed. January 2009, May of 2009, and a pretty recent one in November 2009. Have know idea if they're cummulative or if you have to do them individually, maybe a little more research on MSI's site can answer that question, but I would certainly start there.
    Hope this helps
