Hi guys , First off i am not a computer wiz kid, so any help is appreciated. I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop - Requirements - AMD Turion Dual-Core RM- 70 3-gb ram 2.00 GHz - 32-bit operating system. I have had the laptop for under 1 year now, and i previously had windows vista home premium running on it, it ran so smooth, fast and i did not have any trouble with it at all. Unfortunately for me, i was passing on a few windows 7 forums a while back and seen that there was a beta available for download, so i thought what the heck and gave it a try. So i installed Windows 7 Evaluation copy. Build 7100 - ms windows 7 ultimate. I mainly used my computer for instant messaging, Emails, Music, Surfing the web so basically speaking it should run easily with my daily tasks, but the thing is, it was not. After i installed it, it started okay, but now i notice that my laptop easily increases in battery hotness, when i go on to windows live messenger, it runs really slowly and when i type, you cant see what i type then 2 mins later it eventually comes up, which is annoying considering the specs of my laptop, Also when i start up my laptop it takes a rather long time and the cpu goes straight to 100. My laptop also shuts down sometimes, which it has never previously done. So i was hoping to revert back to windows vista or is there another version of windows 7 i can get that will run smoother ? as i have ultimate, is that why it is running slowly ?. I cant really remember if i download the 32- bit windows 7 ultimate or the 64, but i am sure it was the 32. I was posting on other forums asking for help and no one could help me as i did not leave a partition with windows vista on it, but i noticed when i was mucking about that there is a folder in my computer/local disk / that there is a folder named windows old with various files such as program files-program data-users and windows, and when i click on the windows folder it has multiple folders like boot, system 32,system,tasks,temps etc multiple folders which look like they were used when i was using vista. So what can i do ? i would like to stay with Windows 7, but only if it ran smoothly like it should do, or alternatively i can i revert back to vista ?. Help appreciated, Thanks in advance.
