I had a 32-bit version of Windows XP installed. I checked the NIC (Realtek PCIe GBE family controller), and it appears to be compatible with Windows 7 64-bit. For sound card, I seem to have two listed in my device manager: AMD High Def. Audio Device and Realtek High Definition Audio…I'm guessing the Realtek is my actual sound card. They should be compatible with Windows 7 64-bit as well. My system is "new" enough that all the hardware should be compatible.

I haven't yet attempted rolling back my graphics card drivers to older versions…perhaps that is something to consider.

Thank you for the quick response Drithius!

Icefire: Thank you for the link, unfortunately I found that on my own and the solutions didn't work (that was where I found how to edit the timeout detection and recovery registry values, and sadly, it didn't solve the problem). Thanks anyway though, I appreciate the help!
