astromodder Posted June 9, 2007 Share Posted June 9, 2007 I recently built a new computer and transferred Windows Vista Business 64-bit from my old computer to it. Before going off about me purchasing this and not using linux like a lot of geeks are doing is I do not really have the time to learn linux as I am very busy with school right now and just do not have the time, plus some of the requirements for the online classes will make my life a lot easier if I use Windows, you will read why I switched to Vista later. Here are some of the current specs of the machine for reference: Motherboard: ASUS P5NT WS CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 RAM: 4 GB CORSAIR TWIN2X2048-6400C4 Video Cards: 2 XFX GeForce 7600 (Not currently in SLI for troubleshooting) My problem is the computer is crashing left and right. My previous computer that had this exact operating system on it, had an ASUS P5WD2-E Premium motherboard with only 2 GB of the same RAM, and a Pentium D 950 ran smooth as silk with Vista, thus bringing me attached to it as I had a lot of problems with XP on that machine. But this one is crashing left and right. Sometimes it crashes immediately after logging in but most of the time it would be when I was installing software, mainly Photoshop, that was the worst, or just working with a video in VirtualDub. I received a few blue screens before with kernel page errors and I moved on to booting from the Vista CD and going into command prompt and deleting the pagefile.sys to create a new one but none of this helped. I have set the memory timings manually in the BIOS to 4-4-4-12 as the memory says and to 2T and this has helped some but not much, this mainly helped speed up the system some. Any advice on how to correct this problem or if there is a solution? The main crashes and lockups were in VirtualDub and Photoshop, however some lockups have just occurred periodically. One more thing, all overclocking features have never been turned on and everything is running at stock speeds and the crashing was worse when I took out 2 gigs to test it with only 2 gigs installed.
