    Vista Business x64, Questions / Problems!

    Question 1: Is it still doing it ? Question 2: What ? Question 3: Did it stop doing it after you were done with the transfers ? Question 4: Don't worry, be happy ! Question 5: Backup your important files to an external drive or to DVD if you are that concerned.

    Post here if you love Vista!

    I am completely satisfied with Vista Premium x64 now even though it was a rocky road at the beginning. I only have 2 gigs of ram but I have yet to run into a problem related to this fact. I play games such as Far Cry 2, Call of duty (all of them), Bioshock etc... and use Photoshop and Paintshop...

    Vista SP1 does not complete install.

    Update ! Finally got SP1 to finish installing, I reset the cmos to default settings and disabled everything I didn't need since I got sick and tired of trying to pinpoint the cause of the problem and voila !!!! The whole install process took about 1.5 hrs and I haven't had a problem since. I...

    Vista SP1 does not complete install.

    No luck yet, installed the latest updates but still had the same results. Also disabled the onboard sound but that did nothing either. I can't get the event log right now 'cause I'm on the laptop. I'm just going to have to be patient.

    Vista SP1 does not complete install.

    Carpo, I do have all the latest drivers, which I made sure I had prior to even considering SP1. ray_gillespie, by standalone, i meant the 700mb file from the microsoft site. I have tried with the sata drive disabled since vista would not even install on it but the same thing happened. I have not...

    Vista SP1 does not complete install.

    I have Vista x64 home premium installed, which was running pretty good without any major glitches other than driver issues with some peripherals. When I try to install sp1 via windows update, all looks good until the final reboot when the computer boots in to the bios and then the screen goes...

    Jerky Video

    Thanks for the reply LeeJend ! Since I just got the vid card for XMas last year, I'm gonna keep it for a year or so before I upgrade but I have been considering the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ as a cpu upgrade in the near future.

    Computer will not boot after installing WC-202 Ultra

    All is well that ends well :nervous: After all my hair pulling, I noticed that the thermal sensor lead was keeping the waterblock off the die just enough to prevent proper cooling. Now all is reassembled and my cpu and gpu temps are remaining around 36 celsius idle and 40 to 42 under load. I am...

    Computer will not boot after installing WC-202 Ultra

    Ok, now I'm baffled. Removed the waterblock off the cpu but left the gpu waterblock on and reinstalled the volcano 9 and all is back to normal. On die cpu temp is hovering around 47 celsius on idle and external cpu temp is around 38. What can I do to utilize my cpu waterblock ? I removed...

    Computer will not boot after installing WC-202 Ultra

    I tried one stick out and swapped individually, no go. Can't use memtest, can't boot into the os. Is it likely that both sticks would go bad ? System was working fine before cooling kit. The only thing I have not tried yet was to remove the wc-202 and put things back as they were.
