Blue Screens/Reboots

Hi All,

I have recently installed Windows Vista Home Premium on my PC.
Since about day two I have had blue screen/reboot problems. It happens randomly (I could be surfing the net, looking at an Excel document or using the Vista Media Center software.

I suspected it was either the drivers of my Leadtek DTV1000 T Capture Card or my Radeon X300 vid card. The problem is, I've ruled out both of them as being the cause and now I'm confused!

I took the Leadtek DTV1000 out, replaced the Radeon X300 with a Radeon X700 and re-installed windows. The X700 drivers were included with Vista so I didn't install any other drivers after the Windows Re-install.

I went the first day without any trouble, but 5 minutes ago she rebooted again.

I have a Gigabyte K8NF-9 (rev 1) motherboard.

I highly doubt a hardware problem as it worked fine with XP.
I still suspect drivers, but how do I tell which ones?

Or could it be a big co-incidence that a piece of my hardware is dying just as I changed to Vista? :confused:

Windows Vista is New

Windows Vista at its core is going to end up a very solid os, i too experience bsod almost every time i boot....and i either have to do a cold boot or a system restore in safe mode to the night beforer to get it up again.....and i am not blaming microsoft, or the hardware vendors.....i am blaming them both equally.... microsoft for pushing this oput the door in a hurry, even before new hardware had drivers giving the hardware vendors time to make drivers....and to the vendors, you knew vista was coming before any of us....i dont expect perfection out the door, but come on, the lack luster performance from just about everyone has made this launch a flop.... i just built a new computer, i made sure 100% of it was vista premium certiufied, from the ram, to the mobo, processor, drives etc.....and i still get bsod...... and to the fine idiots at nvidia...your nforce support is terrible.... my 570 ultra chipset has the worst drivers ever.... i feel everyone using an nforce mobo should sue them, they are the slowest and their chipsets are on more mobo's than any other and they have the worst drivers and nasty customer support.

but to all you headaching out there on how vista doesnt, the support sucks big time though.... so unless you are a system builder like myself, or have multiple computers....wait to upgrade, let others like myself test these things out, help get the bugs out.....AND MICROSOFT WE NEED A SERVICE PACK ASAP.... NOT A YEAR FROM NOW.

windows xp works fine...and there is nothing coming out that requires vista for some time.

if anyone has a comment or feedback or even questions -->
