    Thumbs down HELP - Vista crashing on boot

    Hi ALL,

    Just bought a new pc and things are not going as well as I thought.

    Have installed Vista Ultimate and done the updates from Microsoft. When I restart, all goes well. When I turn the pc off and then on again, during the boot part of the startup, just before that green lined boot indicator the pc gets a bsod. But its is so quick I can't figure out whats causing the problem. I have activated the boot log option to see the boot file, but there is nothing there that might even show whats going on.

    HELP... PLEASE !!!

    I'll be damned if I can't figure it out!!!

    Have you tried the MS site for bsod errors? Vista is still so new that I haven't seen a list of errors for it yet any way to get the bsod screen to freez so you can see the error message ? There is a way to do it with Win XP but I don't know if the same method would work with vista.
    Best to start with google and try to find a way to freeze the screen to read the error message. You can always call M$ and ask them if you have them as a support option. I'll see what I can come up with as far as getting Vista to stop at the error

    I would star here there appears to be relevant information for you at this url http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.php
    Good luck, according to the site your problem has a high likelyhood of being hardware related
