    DG45ID running Windows 7 Pro

      This computer keeps freezing.  Sometimes daily, sometimes after several days.  No apparent pattern.  Running Adaptec RAID controller 1220SA and 500GB WD SATA RAID Drives.  Error reads Kernel-Power 41 (63).  Have replaced power supply - no difference.  System is on a battery backup so I don't suspect electrical problem.  HELP!!!

       

      Thanks!

          Jim,

           

          Any resolution on this problem? I have had my DG45ID running with Win 7 RC1 for a year with no issues. However, a few weeks after doing a fresh install of Win 7 Home OEM, the system really started to have problems. Not exactly freezing, but crawling EXTREMELY SLOW with no indication why (using 25% mem, 1GB of 4GB, and 10% of processor). I have re-installed a couple of times, done a full disk error check, and still the problem comes back. The only relief I've found is that during the last install, I turned off automatic windows updates and the problem did not re-occurred until I did the update. So, I think that it's a windows update, or more likely a driver update, that is causing the problem. I was using win 7 to install all the necessary drivers, which it seemed to find without a problem. I still have some more testing to do on the update issue. Are / were your problems similar?

           

          Thanks

            are you running an oem version of WIn7? A recent update by win7 will not allow oem forced win7, perhaps this could be windows attempting to validate your sytem.

              Any luck figuring out your issue?

              I'm experiencing the exact same problem.  Random freezes, sometimes daily, sometimes as much as a week between, same event message.  Running Windows 7 Home Premium.
