Hello all, this is a tricky situation, tried many solutions, nothing worked yet, may be some1 here will help, thank you in advance!
Problem is that in Vista environment i cant play games, the crash after couple secs, sometimes goes up to couple mins, but usually bout 20 secs, the crash is screen turns off, game crashes as well i think as sound turns off as well after and after 10 mins or some pc restarts autamatically, windows suggests to contact nvidia for latest drivers etc
on the other hand in xp environtment games work etc, altho i cant surf! pc freezes after like 1 min of suring, doesnt matter on the browser ie firefox opera nothing, all freeze, the rest is fine can play etc.
Ideally i would like a solution to vista since i liked it, and new games come out for vista only(
System is: CPU: AMD x64 duo core 5200+ Motherboard: M2V asus Video: Nvidia 8800 GTS (640 some mg) RAM: ocz 2 gig
its all the same no matter which version 64 or 86, tried in vista and xp variants
sry if chosen the thread wrong, just imho the prob is bad drivers for video
Read mrwoowoo's link - and something didn't "ring true" check the date of the article?!? Then check here click here
Nvidia and Vista do have some conflicts. I can't play STALKER on Vista a lot of stuttering and freezing, but plays ok in XP (I have a dual boot). So it's not the computer specs. Have you tried a complete uninstall and reinstall of the drivers in Vista. Latest drivers here click here Hope this helps! McD
Sure thing, not sure what u mean tho, u think a 650 watt supply cant handle vista? can disconnect prolly only cd drive rest is essential, dont think cd drive takes that much energy esp that i am not using it that much
yea well u see the probem is so different in both OS's, so not sure what to do, some ppl say its power supply, but tried running with galaxy and its all still the same, didnt try different video card tho, no access(
