Are there updated drivers for this board for windows 7? I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 on my PC and now it keeps freezing anytime I try and run any programs, and now its not recognizing any usb plugins. I had none of these problems until my recent update.
Sounds like hardware issues, you will need to physically take out the hardware(e.g. sound cards, tv tuner, etc.) just start system with only the bare motherboard, video, ram and hard drive.
Make sure you have the latest drivers, but not beta drivers.
