I've been reading the thread and your other thread, people have given you suggestions on how to sort this problem out. Having read these it's like i said a couple of posts back about Driver corruption/incompatibility, you said XP is working fine and when you installed Vista you had problems. People are mentioning Hardware errors because those Vista Drivers must not be compatible with the Hardware. Was this computer originally installed with XP or Vista? If it was XP then i would suggest staying with that and if you really want Vista on the computer then as you said before look for new Hardware or a New Comp depending on what is cheaper because it seems those Vista Drivers can't work with that Hardware, Kimsland mentioned in the other thread about Vista needing a lot more computing power than XP. Hopefully that answers your question Yes also people do answer back to many threads on this site we can't read through every time we come back to the thread so we may mention things again what we've said earlier in the thread.
