I think, the system which you are using might not be compatible with the Windows 7 operating system that is why you are facing this problem on your system. For this you will require to test the system by making use of the tool which is available from Microsoft. Try this out, it does not solve your issue then reply me back.

Even the same problem was faced by me on my system and i tried to changed my hard drive from 160 GB to 80 GB. After doing this it worked fine for me. I feel that the nc4000 does not support a 160Gb hard drive, hence you are facing this freezing problem. So you to change your hard drive from 160 Gb to 82 Gb. I hope it will solve your issue.

I think you are facing this sound problem because you might have not installed the audio driver on your system. This problem actually occurs when there is problem with the audio driver. You must have got a CD along with your motherboard, which consist of the audio driver for your system. You can also download it from the internet. Try this out.
