  1. Booted up computer (i run vista) and a screen popped up saying something about an error with some hardware. Then vista booted up within a few second and said there was a video card error and things. Here what it says:
    anyone know whats up with it?

    Cold boot to safe mode, and see what you get on the screen, as this bypasses all the fancy stuff in the video graphics card. If it works with SAFE BOOT, and not with a normal boot, your video graphics card, or the driver, is part of the problem.
