Installing Windows 7 causes screen to freeze up

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts.

I have properly configured my PC hardware and all is functioning well.  However, I am unable to install Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS on it.  If needed, I'll post the specs here.

When I installed for the first time, the progress bar was not moving. Then I tried it again after reboot, and this time I reached the part where I input the PC name and password.  As soon as I start typing the password, the screen freezes up indefinitely, and this still happens even if I don't input a password.

I don’t have any idea.  I searched for suggestions, and found one which said that I copy the OS to a USB drive and install it from there.  But I think there is another way, without resorting to buying a USB drive capable of storing the whole Windows OS.

Need your help. Thanks.

Hello. If you're having problems installing Windows 7 64 bit, you need to check first if your hardware can actually support 64 bit systems. In order for your pc to run 64 bit applications, your processor should be able to handle 64 bit processes. To find out if it can do the following:

  1. If you're pc can still run Windows, check Performance Information and Tools. Just search for it in the search bar.
  2. If you have Win 7 32 bit, select View and Print Detailed Performance and System Information. For Vista,  select Print Details.
  3. Look for the System section, then check what system you are currently running. And whether your pc can handle 64 bit.
  4. In Win XP, right click on My Computer and select Properties. If x64 Edition is listed, then you're good to go. If not, then there's still a chance that you're pc can handle 64bit. You can go to Microsoft's Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/buy.

Cheers! Hope that helps!

Hi

 

The problem you are discussing is that your window is not installing on your system so first of all check whether your system is compatible for window 7 OS.

If this is happening that your system is enough for Window 7 OS. Then you need to check that if you are using the CD or DVD that is not correct and that is not working properly and that is the reason that you are facing this problem so you must replace the CD instead of purchasing the USB just purchase the new CD or DVD of Window 7 OS that is the solution of your problem if this is not working then try to install form USB but the CD or DVD is not working properly so let just try this one replace the backup source and then install the new version but one of the big possibility is that your system requirements for the window 7 OS is not fulfill by your system and your system does not meet those requirements that is the reason. Hope you will find what is the reason for this. Check out from above reasons you will able to install the window 7 OS.
