    Hi every one,

    I have two disk SATA Western Digital 320 Go.
    One has XP Pro installed and the other one has Vista home prenium. OEM
    To install Vista I unpluged the XP disk and did a clean install on my other
    But Vista freezes all the time and I get lots of blue screens.
    While on XP I did scan my computer to check if compatible with that tool you
    download at microsoft
    No problem were detected. I also get a score of 5 for that performance
    I have a Athlon 4200+dual core
    2Go of RAM
    motherboard M2N-E
    Geoforce 7950 GT 512 Mo
    Audigy 2 sound card

    Still, I am having big problems with my Vista home Prenium OEM.
    All kind of problems.
    -First I can't activate it. It says that there is a problem call bla bla
    -When I try to transfer big datas from my other WD SATA (that I reconnected
    of course) I can read
    "calculating remaining time" and that it will take days, yes days before it
    is done. Under XP I can do that in minutes (many Go) not days
    -It will freeze every time and I have to push reset.
    -Many many blue Screens even in safe mode... or black screnns. Nothing will
    hapen during that times for hours until I reset.
    -Beside Window nothing else is installed at tha moment. But Windows had
    found the wright drivers for my sound card, video card and all the devices
    except for game port and my second network card.
    -My video card fan is running like hell all the times. Normally after a
    while it becomes quiet.
    -Some important updates are impossible to install.

    And so on. So far the more I try to fix it the worst it seems to get. Does
    anyone have an Idea? Any MVP around?
    I think if I can't fix it in one or two weeks I will ask for a refund
    because there is noway I will pay for this. We have 90 days to get a refund
    did you know that?

    Thank you in advance

    Hi Steve,

    I've seen a number of reported issues with nvidia's nForce chipsets (which
    that mobo uses) and AMD dual core cpu's. Asus' site lists no Vista
    compatible chipset drivers for this motherboard, only XP and below, so you
    may be suffering from a compatibility issue. I would open a support case
    with them to confirm it.

    Best of Luck,

    Hi Rick

    Do you mean open a case with Asus or Nvidia?
    Or even Micrososft so they know it's impossible to trust Vista on that kind
    of machine?

    Thank you for the advice
