    As some of you may know I recently built a new system with Vista Home
    Premium x64. It's been running great since I built it in June but now I
    just had a WSOD.

    It doesn't seem to be Vista that is causing the problem since the only
    errors I can find in the Event Viewer are the Kerberos server error
    15016 and an unexpected shutdown error 6008 that occured when I had to
    reboot the computer using the power button because of the WSOD.

    Is this an nVidia problem? I'm using an 8800GTS 320mb and I was using
    the 178.13 driver but I just updated after the "crash" to the newest
    driver 180.48 so I don't know if that was the issue or not.

    It happened when I was searching Google using FireFox. I did launch FF
    too early perhaps and I didn't give the sidebar a chance to load but
    would that cause the problem? If it's a white screen it has to be video
    related and not Vista related right?
