    Seeing that your mobo is P5K, its not too old. I have a Gigabyte P35 DS3R and yours is probably just one level below mine. Anyway, I didn't have to insert any driver CDs at all. Windows 7 supported everything and updated the necessary drivers through Windows Update. Why did you have to insert your CD anyway?

    I had a similar problem. Eventually Microsoft told me to replace the SATA cable for the HDD and Voila! it worked. I was stumped as to what was wrong. I even uninstalled win 7 and reinstalled win xp and win xp worked like a charm. When I uninstalled win xp and reinstalled win 7 I had a problem. It seems that Win 7 is very finicky about hardware integrity. A simple cable was the problem! :confused::confused::confused:

    First thing is never overclock hardware especially when fresh installing - the clean install kicks the bucket pretty quick and all sorts of problems will pop up after a 'successful' installation.

    Secondly, check the sata cable for proper/firm seating - replace it if it feels loosely in seat.
