Audio/video freezing

Here's a good clue that the PC can't keep up or something is amiss causing the PC to hang/freeze while it services whatever and bogs it all down. The audio/video side because they are real time events that an user can see offers that a problem is present. You have to look at what's installed as in pgms. and if all was well until a recent install, look there. If any recent video/audio updates, look there. If the PC was working well before any of these problems arose, then again if something new was added or updated, look at those recent actions.

If you had Win7-32 bit running and now the -64-bit version, then make 100% sure you have installed the 64-bit versions of any updates and/or drivers. If this 64-bit was installed over the 32-bit version, now you know why its best to install fresh, now as an upgrade over existing install.

Ruled out, "electrical interference" hardly, sometimes that comes by way of the PC slot its installed in. Try another, to help reduce that as a cause because noise generated by the PC itself can't cope because overall its a simple level of suppression.

Your details are fuzzy, be specific, new or upgrade OS install?

I don't see mention of if you when the next step, that is use the mtrbd. install disc provided and do after the new OS install. That has to be done and again, refer to the 64-bit side of it all. if not part of the provided disc, then visit the mtrbd. website and get whatever is missing or related to 64-bit installs. On top of that, newer released installs, etc., could well be available and use those on top of anything already installed. Use common sense and get the required updates, etc.. also would discount any "bios updates" here too. At least check the status, if you at bios xxx-2 and now xxx-4 is available, it usually good to install, but that is something left to you to decide. of course, if nothing seems to correct the problem, that maybe an area to look into regardless.

I assume also that the HD was wiped and/or formatted as well. AQlso, consider that older 32-bit pgms. if installed are looked at for any improvements or requirements that 64-bit may impose on them if any. In this area it maybe far better to get the newer s/w version rather than trying to maintain older releases, even if you have to pay for it maybe at reduced cost, etc.. yet another area to check into.

However, if you problems quickly even before any pgms. or such are installed, look squarely at the 1st paragraph I supplied. It's important to review what's what. You may want to check the device mgr. area and see if anything is red/yellow flagged in the listing or anything is out of place, as the whole listing should be collapsed. I hope this all helps...
