  1. I'm getting blue screen when I boot my new Vista Ultimate PC. After a number of reboots it boots correctly. I've tried various drivers, especially nvidia ones, tested the memory for almost 24 hours using memtest86 (no problems found). Once it's booted up the PC is quite stable (outside of games that is). An example dmp file is below (though Vista sometimes says it's produced dmp file but I can't find one in C:\Windows\Minidump):

    Looks like you have a VISTA upgrade machine?
    We need to know brand, model, and configuration before analysis will be helpful.
    Is this a new machine that came with VISTA installed?

    Motherboard:
    Gigabyte GA-P35-S3
    Memory:
    2x1GB Elixir DDR2 PC2-8500
    Cooling:
    Intel Retail CPU Fan + 3 coolermaster case fans. PSU Corsair HX520
    Videocard:

    The machine is a new build with a fresh install of Vista rather than an upgrade.
