    Hi I'm having trouble with my current Windows 7. I have activated it with Daz Loader and have tried the default method, alternative method, and old method in the loader and even booting up without the loader and it still caused my computer to hang randomly. My computer does meet the minimum requirements.
    P4 3 GHz processor, nVidia 8800 GT, 2GB RAM, 320 GB HDD which is partitioned into a 100 GB C: drive. I tried using Memtest86 and there were no problems with my memory. What should I do?
    Any help will be sincerely appreciated. Thank you.

    Does the loader cause the problem or Windows 7 itself? If it's the loader try replying in Daz's thread; he usually answers all replys when he has time.

    If I had to guess it would be the loader's problem even though I have not tried a fresh install of windows 7 without any loaders.

    Fresh installs are the best by far. I had a similar thing happen to me. Formatted the drive and did a fresh install. Loaded Dazs' loader and haven't looked back. I know this doesn't help your situation at the moment.

    Yes it is on a fresh install, both the first time I installed 7(upgraded from XP.) and the second time after I reformatted again, no luck.

    The answer is obvious I think. Uninstall Daz's loader. If the problem persists, then it's from Windows (or from your computer). If the problem is gone, then the simple solution would be to try another loader (there are like a dozen of them).

    [Update] Okay I reformatted again and tried updating. It's NOT the loader for sure. I didn't activate it prior. Just straight Install->Update. I DID NOT enter any CD-Key when asked for it.
    What could be the problem?

    Ok, this may sound strange but I had a similar problem with my pc. I noticed that it would freeze practically daily on XP, win7, and even my bios setup page! I remembered changing a pin on my motherboard to enable Standby, it was called USB Wake up or +5VSB. I recently changed it back to +5V to see what happens and it does not hang anymore. I cannot enter standby but I would rather have a stable pc that cannot enter standby anyway. Anyway, that worked for me, one thing I would try if you did not re-pin your MoBo would be running a memory test to test your ram. After that I would see how much dust you have in your tower. Trust me a lot gets in there! Most likely it is a heat or a software problem. Have you noticed it ever freezing anywhere else like bootup or bios setup or anything like that?

    Go to task manager. Check your memory and CPU usage; make sure they are at normal levels. Are you using 64-bit or 32-bit of windows 7?

    I use 32 bit windows. Memory tests reported nothing. Haven't checked the dust in there but my screen does flicker on the bootup screen (when displaying the startup picture thingy.)

    opps wrong thread with the x64 note lol. Anyway, I believe that flashing at startup is normal. My sisters pc does that probably 2-3 times on the login screen. Anyway, have you checked your temperatures lately? I mean the CPU, Chasse(If available), GPU(Graphics Card) and the fan speeds. Some MoBo's let you check that with various programs like Everest but the most surefire way to check is to boot into your bios setup and go to Hardware Monitor.
