Possibly a non compliant program, are all the programs you have added Vista compliant?

At the moment i havent put any programs on, beacause of the jamming?

When you say you have just bought it do you mean you have just installed it or has it come on your new PC?

A sart up repair may do it for you. click here

Well it will not be the OS if it's raw without anything added unless the original installation was corrupted.

It might be a hardware issue, if it is so new take it back and ask for another one. My XP laptop is now 5 years old and is running fine but not before PC World changed it for a new machine.

My wife uses it now and I hope she will get Vista soon. Take the machine back is my advice.
