I have a situation where a few Windows 7 based PC's are basically experiencing a power cut every day, in other words they don't get to shut down - the power simply cuts.
With XP there was never an issue, it would reboot when needed and everything was fine. With Windows 7 however the systems lose any grip on reality, forgetting USB devices which are plugged into it (requiring unplug, restart, plug back in), drive corruption, monitor resolution switching etc. Is there anything in Windows 7 which is that different from XP that it would cause these issues?
Update: Caching is the last thing for me to try this week, after that I'm out of ideas and it's time to call in Microsoft to work it out.
Although I had a call today to say 8 XP systems have gone the same way as the Windows 7 machines, so I'm now wondering if it's the HDD's. They refuse to boot, I've heard about XP being finicky of AF drives, I guess it is.
