    i don't know if it was the same device, but when i installed win7, only 1 device was unrecognized and showed up unrecognized mass storage device
    it was the TI card reader and problem was fixed after installing Win7 drivers from Toshiba site

    Found similar problem, maybe this will help..

    I bought my x205 about two years ago. I have since helped my mother-in-law and my wife pick out a new computer and they were both slower machines. I have also looked at what is new out there and there really isn't anything much better than what I have unless I want to spend another 2 grand.

    Thanks, but I'll stick with what I got for now.

    My machine (x205 sli3) just returned from 7 weeks in for repair (extended warranty, thank god). Replaced both drives, both GPU's, motherboard and CPU. It has had on/off blue screens since new. Since I still have another year of warranty, I plan on getting rid of it and replacing it with something dependable (even if it is slightly slower)

    btw, this is the 2nd time I've had to send it in.

    having problems with windows 7 install on my s9349 -- the screen flickers with no matter what driver im using (tried from toshiba and nvidia)..

    so i gave up and i opened the system recovery disc for the first time out of the plastic and it gets to the 2nd disc when it starts saying that it can't read certain files.. and then it errors on me.

    now i have nothing.. can't even go back to vista.

    how can the system recovery disc fail like this when i never used it before? anyone help me with this windows 7 home edition 32bit flickering?

    please im so frustrated :( thank you.

    Sorry to hear about the Windows 7 problems. I have a 64-bit copy waiting for me to install it on mine, but you guys are kind of scaring me. I hope I don't have too many issues. I'll post whether all goes well or not.

    The screen flickers whenever powermizer changes clocks, this happens on 185.xx and above with me..
    you can either disable powermizer, or use an older driver, i suggest 182.46-Dox optimized
