Alright, hey guys. I've been having trouble for a few days with my computer, and I'm now more or less stumped. I'm posting in this section, though I'm not certain if Vista is actually at fault.

OK, so a few days ago I booted up as per, only to be met by the black screen bug that I've seen so widely reported across the net. After searching for fixes-and trying them all, I instead went with reinstalling windows completely because none of the 'solutions' solved anything more than remporarily. After doing that, the machine worked a treat. Until I restarted it.

Now I'm struggling to install just about anything. I tried installing bitdefender (which previously had worked fine) only for it to be constantly killed by the data execution prevention, which never happened before (I uninstalled it now). I tried reinstalling my xbox 360 wireless connector, but the usb socket didn't want to work anymore (I switched socket and that did-eventually, install, but only after disabling my mouse which took me another 20 minutes to get working again...) I tried reinstalling steam, which never actually opens. Chrome only opens half the time, and often after a big delay.

I'm also having chronic slowdowns, the windows still seems unstable, crashing repeatedly and just freezing even when idle.

And strangely, the PC won't actually shut down anymore. When asked to close, it does go through the usual process of shutdown, and the monitor stops getting any feed, and then it just stays on doing nothing until I turn it off manually.

I'm aware that these issues could be coincidental, but it all came from the initial problem with the black screen. I had hoped that reinstalling windows would solve it, but it's just created new problems. What I can't tell, though, is what is causing these issues. Does anyone out there have any suggestion for what to do next?

Via the Vista installation disk. My computer isn't manufacturer built :)

EXACTLY how did you reinstall Vista? Did you do it from within the OS? Did you boot to the Vista cd? Did you reformat? Did you delete the existing partition. EXACTLY what did you do?

Oh right, got you.

Reinstalled via the disk on startup. I first tried the startup repair from the Vista disk at startup, but it told me that no problem was found.
