What are your specs? This sounds almost like a hardware problem not software?

It does sound like a hardware problem. Have you installed the motherboard drivers after you finished the Windows 7 installation?

Is this a laptop or desktop? Did you reinstall from a recovery disc/partition or from Windows 7 DVD?

If you provide ALL THE INFORMATION at hand it's a lot easier for people to help.

Ok, saying it is a laptop and you backed it up isn't your system specs. We need a lot more information, there are a lot of tests you can run but we need more information.
Click Here for Everest, it will give your system specs if you aren't sure how to find them or know what they are.
