Alright, so my hard disk crashed a few days back (I was running XP Pro), so I decided to install 7.
My specs are:
Motherborad: Intel 82865GBF
Graphics: On-board 256MB graphics, they are handling the aero style well.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0Ghz
Ram: 3 GB
Now, here's the problem. I installed Windows 7 and it loads up fine. Then when i'm doing anything like browsing though empty folders or opening up the control panel, the compe freezes for a few seconds, the active window says 'Not Responding' in the title bar.
I took a closer look at the Cabinet and realised that when I tell the computer to do something, the HDD light doesnt light up, then I get the Not Responding, and then 10-20 secs later, the HDD light blinks and the Not Responding window starts working.
It does this for everything I do, the HDD light has a lag of 10-15secs after which it lights up and the computer does what I had told it to do.
BTW, the Aero glass interface works great, no lags whatsoever in that respect.
Also important to know is that the HDD is completely blank, it only has Windows 7 on it, I havent installed one file or application.
So I think this is a HDD problem since it just crashed a few days back, but I can't be sure.
Ohh, last problem, My keyboard doesnt work completely (it used to with XP), in Windows 7 i couldn't press Shift or Caps Lock and some other alphabets, today morning I could press shift and Caps Lock, but those same alphabets didnt work.
The keyboard thing can either be a Keyboard problem (very unlikely) or a motherboard problem.
Please let me know guys.
