    This is usually, but not always, caused by incorrect drivers. Did you change something in your hardware setup? Have you always had VISTA on that machine?

    Since 0x50 errors are associated with Defective Memory and Incompatible software, try running Memtest86. Burn the pre-built ISO to a disk and then restart the comp (Make sure in BIOS that the CD/DVD drive is the first bootable option) and start the test let it run for 3-5 hours (Minimum Of 7 Passes) or overnight which would be better.

    Memtest86 -
    ISO Recorder -

    Download ISO Recorder V3 for Windows Vista to burn the Memtest86 ISO to a disk. Post back after this or if you have any questions.
