Problem with Windows Vista

    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.

    I appreciate all the help as well, sorry this is just really bugging me...
    I built this PC, and yes originally when I built it it ran with XP... but I recently UPGRADED for my parts to run with Vista, I even bought a motherboard that says Vista Compatible right on the front,? would you recommend me contact MSI and see if their drivers are confliction?

    Yes it would be best if you contacted MSI they would know how there Drivers work and maybe able to confirm and help with the Driver Conflictions.

    Technical hitch

    Hi there guys, i've got a bit fo a technical hitch and i wondered if someone may be able to help me. During a fault on my laptop, i had to load a second copy of windows vista onto my harddrive, i loaded it into a seperate partition thinking it would be easy to remove but at this point it now seems to be running of both of them, as it won't let me delete it. any ideas how i can get rid of one of them? as it does take up a huge amount of space! cheers

    Dude make your own ****ing topic... btw I installed Vista again, got the BSOD... attempted to update my BIOS and got a BSOD... maybe my OS has SP1 on it? causing the problems? If not, then something is seriously wrong... I get that Vista uses different schemes and drivers, but if XP functions fine and everything I don't get how Vista can do this? especially when Vista worked fine prior, ran all these tests... If HAS to be my Drivers, no doubt about it.

    I just don't know which ones snce I've tried difference Video Card drivers... but I can't find a list of MSI drivers for K9VGM-V so I can choose old ones, and the ones on my disc seem to be for XP only? I dnno.
