Vista is killing me! Here are the specs on my machine..
ASUS P5N-E SLI NFORCE 650I SLI MB
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6700 2.67
2 160GB SATA-II HD in RAID 0
1 320GB SATA-II HD
CREATIVE LABS AUDIGY Sound
2 GEFORCE G8800GTS 320MB PCI in SLI
WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM 32-BIT (came with the computer)
3GB of DDR2 PC6400 MEMORY
At first things were great, but when I started installing games it all went to hell. I even tried removing all programs and reinstalling windows but it hasn't helped. Now, no matter what program I'm using (games or not) it will lock up at any random moment. Currently, the only games on the computer are Half Life 2 and Preatorian. I've also used a registry cleaner but it makes no difference.
I've read that some folks have driver problems with the 8800's nividia's so I tried downloading and installing the latest driver for Vista. It locks up during the install and now the computer only recognizes one video card.
I've rebooted so many times I think the hard-boot button is wearning out.
Any help is appreciated. I'm limited in my computer savvy, but let me know what information you need and Ill do me best to find it.
