Hello daboneman911, welcome to the Windows 7 Forums website!

If you would list your system specs that would help. Hardware as in motherboard or model of computer, etc.

Did you install Windows 7 yourself? What version and edition are you using?

Thanks,

Okay, is it the 32 or 64-bit version of Windows 7?

Did you install Windows 7 yourself?

Have you installed the latest drivers for your AMD Mobility Graphics card and chipset?

Go here to download: http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx

Do you have the latest BIOS firmware installed? Which is v1.05 Date: 7-13-2010 If not go here: http://support.gateway.com/product/default.aspx?modelId=2374
Then click on the BIOS tab to download it.

PLEASE answer all my questions, it will speed things up quite a bit.

I have yet another question - do your memory and harddrive show in the BIOS? The reason I ask, I suspect you are having issues with, most likely the harddrive, but possibly RAM.
