While I understand that it's urgent for you to fix this issue, I believe that the repeated attempts to fix everything the moment that it pops up have resulted in additional problems that are masking the true issue here.

So here's what I'd suggest:
1) Perform a repair installation of Vista (this may be difficult as the RC is set to expire in the near future) and get the Windows Updates if you are able.
2) Uninstall all of your drivers (one by one) and then reinstall them with the latest, Vista compatible drivers that are available. At this point, if there isn't a Vista driver for a component on your system - disable it. This will prevent compatibility issues from rearing their ugly head during the troubleshooting process. (this, I suspect, will fix the problem)
3) Test the system for hardware issues. I'd suggest SiSoft Sandra Lite for a general checkup (it's free), MemTest86 for your memory, and a diagnostic utility from the manufacturer of your hard drive.

Yeah I've been trying to avoid it but I agree a repair install or perhaps even a full reinstall of Vista seems like it will be the best fix. From the way the drivers are acting I realized this morning that the reason it's trying to install the network controller drivers on my bus enumerators when I install the chipset drivers is because Vista still thinks I'm on my old mobo. It's pretty weird actually it seems like the system is like degrading or something - The more I try to use it the more often I get BSODs. Last week I went almost 3 days without getting one now the system can hardly even run (gaming or not) at times. Anyway when I get home from work it's the first thing I'm going to do. Thanks guys.

well that explains all the bsod's, even with XP the only way I got away with changing a mobo was immediately run xp as a repair disk and even that had issues if there were too many changes

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Well, reinstalling the OS fixed the BSOD issues. For some reason, however, my computer refuses to post when I have one of the ram sticks in or sometimes it endlessly reboots from the windows loading screen. It's got a lifetime warranty, though, so it's all good. (Still a bit confuzzled, though since memtest didn't find any probs. Ah well...) Anyway, thanks for your help guys!

Even though memtest didn't find any issues, that doesn't mean that the ram is perfectly fine. The ram may very be the root of all this evil you're experiencing! :thumbsup:

MemTest is a software test of hardware parts - it's not just a test of the RAM, but it's also influenced by the channels in the system where the test results flow - up to and including the display on your monitor.

Try testing one stick at a time - and switch them between the slots. You may find that you've got a bad slot rather than bad RAM.
