First, I don't understand what you mean when you say you reinstalled W7 to fix a couple of missing drivers. What drivers and how did you reinstall?

Next, what do you mean Task Manager is slow to respond? Please explain IN DETAIL.

Well Firstly the there were a couple of audio drivers that were preventing playback and recording. Secondly what I mean slow to respond is that when I open up task manger and try to end a process, I click on the process and after 3 seconds it becomes highlighted, then I click end process then after 3 seconds it responds, then the confirmation comes up I click end process and after 3 seconds it responds and stops the process.

I'm sorry, I still don't understand why you reinstalled the OS.

And I asked HOW you reinstalled it please.

I was looking to save space on my C drive and while uninstalling unwanted programs I accidentally uninstalled my Reatek audio driver. I tried many times to reinstall the driver but none succeeded and so I decided to reinstall Windows. I reinstalled my OS from a Windows 7 installation disk.

Okay, so you did a brand new clean install - meaning you booted to the W7 dvd, formatted, and installed from scratch? If that's the case, did you then download and install all appropriate drivers starting with the chipset driver? And did you obtain those drivers directly from the Acer website as opposed to Windows Update?

Clearly neither of the above two mosts helps if there is a problem with the system. But the OP hasn't responded for 10 days so..........
