    I all,
    I have a problem on my Windows Vista that began afetr the purchase of an external Hard Disk Freecom.
    A few days afetr the purchase I disconnected it while it was writing and, since that moment, every time I connect and disconnect it, the PC go to freeze mode for 5 minutes.
    The same thing happen even if the hard disk is disconnected: every time I start windows it go to freeze a little after the password, and every time I connect and disconnect a usb device.
    I have looked for the solution everywhere, updated windows, unistalled and installed the hard disk from the device manager but I solved the problem only when I restored a recent backup.
    Yesterday the Hard disk was writing a backup while Vista was installing the updates; at the end of the proceure windows restarted automatically and the problem began again!!!
    The Pc go to freeze when it starts, every time I connect or disconnect the hard disk, an usb earphone that has always worked switch on but there is no audio and I don't know how many others usb devices will have problems.
    Has anyone an idea to solve this problem before I throw out of the window Vista or the the hard disk?
    Thank you

    First off, your probably better upgrading to Windows 7.

    Backup your stuff and then install windows xp. Its stable and works on most hardware. Use that for a bit, install updates etc etc. If its a hardware problem you can probably try and see what is causing it. If it works fine then its probably Vista, either stay on windows xp or move to windows 7.

    Could you provide a list of your hardware?

    am I the only person in the world who likes vista? its not a bad OS. just take the time to learn to use the computer instead of complaining whenever you don't understand something, and you, too, can be happy with your computing experience. Don't rely on microsoft to make a perfect, custom OS just for you.

    Berky93, I like Vista! My sister has it on her brand new Acer and I think it's great.. has a bit more complatibility with my DVD-ROM games and I really like the dashboard part.

    So.. don't complain, people, it's technology. Nobody can get it done perfectly.
