Just wanted to ask if someone could help me make my Windows 7 Beta platform a bit more stable via chipset drivers etc? I have a lot of problems with the computer BSOD'ing, freezing, and everything from memory management, irq less or equal, ntfs.sys, fltmgr.sys etc makes my system go bananas. 😉
I have installed the 8.12 preview package for Radeon cards and Windows 7 Beta, but I'm unsure what CPU/chipset drivers I should use for best performance?
My rig is:
MSI K9A2 CF-F BIOS 1.7 With AMD790X / SB600
AMD Athlon64 X2 CPU
Corsair PC6400DHX XMS2 RAM
AMD/ATI Radeon based ABIT Radeon HD4670 512Mb
SBLive Digital 5.1 PCI Soundcard
PSU Corsair 600W (650?) 😉 Don't quite remember, but it's the one on top of the 550W.
I'd like to mention that my system is steady as a rock when running both XP and Vista 32bit. Have never had a bluescreen in Vista, during the whole time I've used it, so it's a little strange that the Win7b is so unstable on my rig. (Well, not really, actuallly...lol..)
Hope anyone can help me, pointing me in the right direction. 😉
And thanks to AMD/ATI for joining, it's surely my dreamteam!
Best regards from
Thanks, I just want to say that I tried the 32bit version, but didn't find the problem. So I installed it over again, and this time it looks stable. Strange, but that's probably why they call it beta? 😉 Wow, a huge increase in cpu/gpu performance in the windows hardware perf.index! I like it already! ;-D
I prefer to wait the official version. I don't undersetimate beta version but I often heard that most beta version is unstable. Don't want to take the risk, especially for operation system.
You, guys and girls, just try to google something like that "Download Windows 7 beta" or (even better) try to search it in BitTorrent trackers.
