So we can probably rule out the power supply. You might start with moving the video card to another system and seeing if the same problems happens. You also might want to check your bios version number. It looks like ASUS released a few BIOS updates to address system stability. You can find the latest on the ASUS website.

VLK as in volume licensing? That's your problem, that license is for processional deployments and is incompatible with Home edition. Looks like you'll have to reinstall windows with the Pro media.

To move from windows Home to Windows Pro, you do have to purchase windows a second time. You either spend the money for a brand new license, or you spend the money to upgrade your existing license.

From what I understand, you can use any windows 7 disk to install any version of windows. The setup files are the same, only the configuration files are different. This is what allows the Anytime upgrade process to work. A simple way to think about it is that the process unlocks additional features.

Doubtful, I think it depends on how the image is displayed and what the capabilities of the photo editor is.

To save resources, Windows refreshes the desktop view only when absolutely necessary.

I think you are missing the point of my question so I just went with some general examples. It may not apply to your particular situation.

comment Windows 7 Backup vs. Previous Versions
A script can be a pain to manage but would be the low cost solution here. I'd check out "Crashplan". They have a local client that has some interesting feature sets as well as a cloud component.

do you have some sample websites/photo sources that we can look at? It probably has something to do with how the image is being rendered on the page.

comment in windows 7, during startup, why do my icons go blank and then reappear
I completely agree with @horatio and should reiterate that you should first look for software that you don't use which launches at start up. Hardware upgrades are a last resort.
