This review is from: Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 (Discontinued) (Electronics)
I bought this headset to use with my gaming PC. Few months later I got myself PS3 and was very disappointed to find, that G930 is not compatible. I had few issues with software on 64bit OS, but managed to sort it out. Battery last long enough, they are comfortable, even after 6-7h gaming sessions I never felt any pain. Volume scroll is really handy. There are few bad points. Microphone will mute when pulled up, that's annoying in some situations. The 7.1 switch has no label, I never know when I turn it off, and when I turn it on. (gotta check in software)
-7.1 + Wireless
-Battery last long
-Handy buttons + scroll
-Microphone switching off when vertical
-Poor 7.1 switch label
-Lack of compatibility with PS3/Xbox
-Minor software issues
I cannot blame the product for not being compatible with console, but for 150 quid, many would expect that. I have originally bought them to use with PC and for that purpose they are great. I'm extremely happy with them overall and would recommend to anyone. Four stars only for lack of compatibility with PS3, considering the price.

May I ask what kind of issues you had with Windows 7 and how did you resolve them?
I personally have issues with both G35 and G930 headsets, there seem to be conflict with built in sound card and very often the system freezes and I have to restart the system. I have regular PC and also new iMac with Windows 7 installed as a 2nd system. Both headsets on both PC and iMac cause the same issues. MAC OS X is fine - never had any issues but unfortunately Logitech didn't make any software for macs.

Client used to freeze, right after launch. I tried reinstalling the client, but no joy. Finally, I put a fresh copy of win7 64bit, and used the outdated version of software (from g930 CD) - that worked. I a have built-in sound card on Crosshair IV formula, just in case you were wondering. My system never froze, because of the headphones.
Try different drivers for your current sound card. If that does not help, maybe try disabling sound card, before turning headphones on ?
I hope that helps.
