Windows 7, deal with network adaptor issues

We have one 6530b HP laptop machine with us, which has gone through half dozen formats, mainly due to issues with network adaptor. The last format was performed 2 weeks back and realized one important factor. If windows finds a proper driver for your network adaptor, NEVER NEVER try to upgrade the driver using OEM or chip manufacturer drivers!

We were doing the same mistake always as the driver configured by Microsoft dates back to year 2009 beginning. Once the driver set by Microsoft untouched, the network related issues are almost non-existing right now.

Hope this information is useful for those who have few years old hardware and a new age OS like Windows 7!

and recently noticed additional crashing behavior on Windows 7 (64Bit) without any apparent reasons. Based on one of our previous posts, after dwelling into possible reasons figured out the following!

Few of the database level procedures were modified with more parameters(IN and OUT) which was causing the developer suite to crash down.

So, prior you make changes to database level procedures or functions, MAKE SURE YOU DO CHANGE THE PROCEDURE/FUNCTION CALLS FROM YOUR FORM MODULES with all new IN and OUT parameters, then proceed with compiling your Procedures and Functions @ database level. If anybody is aware of another method to deal with this situation, please pass the information through comments.
