Did this configuration work on a previous version OS? ..is this a windows 7 only issue? Or is it a brand new setup with all new equipment? It sounds like you need a whole IT department to deal with all that equipment....very impressive setup though. A lot of variables.
I am running two machines with 58X Classified 60's, with 12 GB of corsair C7 12800 XMS Ram. Evga 295 video card. Creative Titanium Elite with front control. Ultra 1200, and Ultra 1000. In the 12000 I have a second Corsair 800 to run extra hard drives and my MTEC Freezone Elite. This machine has an Areca 1600xi-12. 6 Hard drives- 300 GB Raptors are in 3 pairs of Raid 0. A pair of WD 15K 's are in a Raid 0 for gaming. There are 4 1 TB in a Raid 0 and two pass throughs. the CPU is the i7 975 extreme. LG Blu-ray burners in both, Plextor burners in both.Unibrain 1394B cards with Unibrain Drivers. one 2250 TV Card by Hauppauge in each. Each boot is Windows 7 Ultimate and Pro and they are divided into Photo, Video, Gaming, Daily tasks. Networked with Cis WRT610N Rounter and Motorolla's newest high speed modom. The machine that is the same in hardware is just less drives and an Areca 1212 card. CPU i7 965 Extreme, same HD's and same Video card, TV card and 1394 800 unibrain PCIe 1 card.. Runs cool. No blue screens. They jst won't shut off. This is Wierd, but there must be a common hardware that is klling the shut down time. I run Network Magic and hae my two machine and my wifes' and a samsung blu-ray DVD player hooked to router. The "smaler" macineis wireless with my OfficeJet 8500g. the big machine is direct USB. 30 inch Dell H2c, 24 in Samsung Synmaster P2570 and for photo s a HP LP2475w 24 inch. all are on Cyberpower Power Backups. Sound is all fiber optics out to a Yamaha 7.1 Receiver and a full sized set of Bose speakers. I have Logitec 9000 pros on each and a Nikon Super coolscan 5000 ED for my cnversion of photos to digital. I am baffaled. I have updated the latest BIOs for Board and router. Any ideas. Thanks
