Hi there can you help me?
I have recently upgraded my PC to the following setup:-

- Intel Quad Core Q6600 2.4GHz S775
- Kingston ValueRAM 2x1GB 240-Pin DIMM PC2-6400 Non-ECC CAS5
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 160GB 7200RPM S300 8MB Cache
- Samsung 20x SATA DVD-RW lightscribe Black OEM BARE DRIVE
- Windows Vista 32 Bit Home Premium

Now i have installed the OS and have connected to my home network, but now i am having a very weird problem.
When i download a program from the internet E.G. adobe reader and try to run that program it comes up with the Blue screen of death.
Why? I have gone into the bios and checked everything!

well i did have a nvidia geforce 8800GT Graphics card in there but when i found it was the problem, i got rid of it and i ran a nuke and boot program on it. although the motherboard does have a onset one lol.
Also its very weird cause the programs i downloaded last night work fine now :O

Ah i have just found out what the problem was, ha i originally put xp onto the pc, and installed the msi drivers needed for xp not vista.
So i have reinstalled vista with the correct drivers hehe silly me!
