What many are not told is that Microsoft does not upgrade drivers for your machine. YOU as the OS installer get to hunt down the needed BIOS updates, drivers. Microsoft will not do this for you.
Next the pest control must be taken to extremes. Have a clean machine. Try EWIDO and HOUSECALL. Do not run old incompatible versions of Norton or CD recording software (the most common gaffes.)
Hope this helps you move ahead.
