W7 Slow since day 1 of owning. Registry error

November 6, 2011 at 20:56:29
Specs: Windows 7, i7 3.2 / 6GB
Bought this system from cyberpowerpc. Mix and matched the parts I wanted. Arrived and installed fresh copy of windows 7 and that's when hell started. Somehow it would not install, attempted a second time and finally got it to start, a miracle!

Constant registry problem and when booting up the computer attempts to "repair" itself only to break even more, to the point that it will not respond when i try to open any program or file. Sometimes it would just stuck in POST around where it says starting windows. I stopped turning off my computer because everytime I restart/ power on it would give me that repair or disk check. Not turning off the computer is the only fix that I can think of so far.

More recently it would run my game and then crash saying no memory or something along the line of that. While using video capturing program I get these lags that most support forum associate with low ram.

Some game just won't install, Tried installing some game and most of them seem to have no problem, but Final Fantasy 14 would not install. Took me months of trying before giving up.

My computer is constantly running at optimal because I have to format it every other month. I doubt any of the windows installation last long enough to catch a virus.

That is all I can think of right now, but I'm sure I can think of more problems later. Please kind sir and lady help me out and find a solution for me. This rig has cost me a fortune and I have been under it's curse for over a year. Just want to find a way to fix it or at least find and replace the part(s) broken. Thank you all so much!

"I have to format it every other month"
When you format, do you delete all partitions & format to NTFS?

Is W7 32 or 64-bit?

"I doubt any of the windows installation last long enough to catch a virus"
Try installing W7 & running for a few days, without being connected to the internet.

If it has been causing problems since you got it then you should really have referred it back to the manufacturer some time ago. If a fresh install doesn't work on a system then the hardware is almost certainly the culprit, so you need to check your RAM, both physically making sure it's firmly inserted, and then run Memcheck or similar on it, then check any other hardware you can.

Hardware, Yes.
Run Memtest86 to test your memory, rerun with one stick at a time if any errors, replace as needed.
Run hard drive utility from your hard drive mfg from bootable CD like Memtest to test your hard drive for problems.
If these do not show up the problem, unplug and unplug and reseat all cards and connectors. Inspect that wires are not running along sharp edges within case and keep signal cables and such away from power cables (do not bundle together).

Have you reinstalled the correct/updated copies of your hardware drivers each time you reinstall? This is sometimes overlooked but should not be.

yes I delete all partition and format to NTFS.

W7 64 bit

and yes I should have sent it back, but after buying 2 computer from cyberpowerpc that worked great, plus it only took a 2nd time to install windows 7 I figured it a software error.

I will go ahead and try to do the mem test.

also just got a new hard drive. seem to fix some problems but made others. CheckDisk still pop up and breaking games I installed. I think I will return the hard drive.

Seagate? I'm guessing if there is a problem with a relatively new drive.
