Ok, I have an IbuyPower ATX tower (Raidmax) with an Asus K8V Deluxe MB AMD 64 3200 processor, 3 G ram. I just upgraded it (along with two other or my PC's) to Win7 Home Premium. This machine makes a crash sound periodically (once an hour?) and the display goes black and says "no signal". In less than 15 seconds it returns to normal and is ready to go. So it's not a real Crash but something else. I suspect the GeForce FX5900 )128Ram) Video card. I have checked and updated all the drivers for the chipset, MB and the GeForce card. When this happens I see the CD/DVD drive lights (have two) flash like on start up but it's not a reboot that's happening that fast.

Anyone got a clue?

Ok, something new.

It just completely shut down for the first time. I think it's haunted!

This machine is still acting strange. I had it shut down for a few weeks for vacation. It loaded all the updates when I restarted. I want to add that it ran just fine on Win XP Pro. All of this started with the Win7 install. I see several other RECENT post from others that seem to be having similar problems with Win 7 and one was even an ASUS MB. Should I just take the machine back to Win XP? If so How should I do that? Reformat the HDD and start from scratch? I am running check disk again right now. It is taking forever.

I want to add the following to this post and NOT create a New Topic since it all started with the installation of Win7.

I can no longer print from this computer. It is directly connected to the Modem/router. I can print from both of the other PCs via WiFi. Are folks having these problems with Win 7 on SOME hardware (MBs, Video Cards, etc)

Disk Check may have helped a little. But it is still behaving the same just less frequently.

SOLVED SOLVED SOLVED

I accidentally pressed the "sleep" button on my Windows Keyboard and the computer did exactly what it was spontaneously doing. This led me to the "Power Settings" in Win7. They are much different than anything I have seen in other versions. I disabled the "hibernation" settings and several other parameters that were available. Now my K8V Deluxe seems happy again. Hope this helps others. Nothing but just the old "Power Management" settings. All of my other devices are portable devices and I guess the defaults set themselves.
