    I've seen issues like this on Windows 7 BETA with a GeForce 6600 Go Vid Card on my laptop, I haven't experienced any issues like this with Win7 RC1 however. Are you sure your running RC1 and not a beta copy? What is the build of the OS your running?

    Start->Run->CMD-> C:\>ver

    I'm not sure if you already mentioned this or not but be sure to run Windows update to be sure that you have the latest video card drivers release by M$ for Win7 installed ....

    Yes, I am sure it is Win 7 RC. It does seem to be a problem with Windows. It happened again today, so I went to another computer I have and tried to log on using Remote Desktop. It didn't work, just gave me a time out error after I entered my password. I looked in the event log to see if there were any warnings or errors that could clue me in as to what happened, but didn't see anything.

    So now I have updated the video driver to .8635. We'll see how this goes.

    Sunkast,
    Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 RC Support Forum located here Windows 7 Category . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads there for additional support and troubleshooting ideas.

    Oh yeah meant to update this... After updating the vid card driver a little over a week ago, I haven't had any problems. Looking to get my A+ soon too. Just found it quite strange having not had a problem for over a month, then having it happen intermittently.

    I have the A++ software testing exams that we used to prep us in Tech School. I really should catch up on those again.
