Sorry, thought I'd save you the effort of downloading an attachment.


Results of speed & ping test in safe mode:

I think what safe mode with networking ultimately eliminates is the whole alternating between F-tier and B-tier internet(i made some edits on the bottom of page 3)

Next I'm going to move the adapter between all the PCI slots to test for packet loss.

Cool....That's better. You did an upgrade from vista to win 7 didn't you, not a fresh install. I'm looking over the auto txt I'll get back with you.

go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features and unistall these. Then reboot.


Google
Trillian Toolbar




Ralink 802.11 Wireless Adapter Driver??? You need to uninstall this. This is a USB driver for a Wireless device. This could be the problem. Duno yet.


Go to this site and download ccleaner. It's free

http://www.filehippo...nload_ccleaner/ the one you want is in the top right

of the window and it says

"Download
Latest Version
#.##MB

After downloading Install it and open the program up and go to the "Tools" tab

After you're on the page click on the button that says "Start Up"

This will show you a list of all the programs that start when windows starts.

Down at the bottom right of the page click on the "Save to txt file" button

and Save. Post it with your next reply.

Next click the "uninstall" tab and then click on the "Save to text file"

and post it along with the "start up" text you saved earlier.

Yeah I read it. You didn't tell me if you uninstalled Pando Media Booster

Did you do an upgrade to windows 7 from vista or did you try to do a fresh install of windows 7

Open up Ccleaner and go through the different options to clean your system of unneeded programs and other junk files. After you have completed cleaning then reboot.

Well is that Ralink driver I uninstalled the adapter driver I was using? Because I lost all wireless networking ability after I did. My friend stumbled upon that thread and helped me install 2860 Ralink drivers which seem to have brought me right back to this position. His Safe Mode solution didn't seem to help me at all and in the device manager it registers as WMP600N instead of the Ralink Technology Corp.

Yes I uninstalled Pando, and I didn't choose to upgrade Windows, neither time. I chose to install windows as fresh as possible (I loaded the CD from the desktop) and it didn't give me an option to delete everything, instead just making two giant folders of windows.old data on my C: (that I deleted earlier)

My mistake on the Ralink driver, yes it's the driver for your linksys network card, actually for the chipset on the card.

In one of your earlier posts I noticed that you had a folder named "windows.old" that is why I asked you how you reinstalled windows.

At this point, I personally would do this. Reinstall windows but Don't do it from the desktop.

You may have selected the upgrade option instead of a fresh install when you tried to do it from the desktop.

If you're not sure how to do this then ask.

MAKE sure you save any information you want to keep before doing this.

Put the disk in and MAKE sure you boot off of it. Go into bios and make the cd/dvd rom the first boot device

then save and exit.

Reboot the pc and it should boot to the win 7 disk.

you then have to make sure you format the drive before installing win 7

this way you have no left over files remaining from vista. Seeing some of the software installed on your pc leaves me to believe that there is something left over from vista that is causing this issue with your wireless network card.

Do you have more than one drive installed? Or do you have more than one partition on the hard drive (S)

My only HDD is the 500GB on page 1

Guess I should've booted from CD, huh? I had a hunch I needed to do that..

I 100% understand your vista suspicion. It makes sense because of how well everything worked directly after installation. Something must've leaked in.

I will do the reformat very soon.

Thanks for helping me this much so far!

Every time I try to boot from CD, I get a screen with some windowsy install background with no options. It just loads a picture. This happens when I tried to install Vista from boot, too.

From what I've been reading it seems to be a common problem...

Some things to try

Update the BIOS !!Make sure this is the correct bios!! ---> http://www.biostar.c...os.php?S_ID=417
Disable USB keyboard and USB mouse in BIOS
Disable LAN in BIOS
Disable FDD in BIOS
Eject the Win7 DVD after it freezes, and reinsert
Wait 30+ minutes for the system to finally continue

http://www.biostar.c...nt.php?S_ID=417

The other options are to try a different disk or cd/dvd drive.

You may have tried some of these. Post back what you find out.

Yeah the aimlessly waiting forever helped.

It still gave me no option to do a fresh install without creating the windows.old.

I reformatted and all, though.

There are other ways to format the drive without using the win 7 disk. I'll look around. So does the wireless work now?
