Vista Update Woes

  Supertramp 19:54 18 Jan 2009

Hi I hope someone can help. I have just installed Vista with SP1 as an upgrade over XP, now I wished I hadn't. Every time I boot up and get to the log on screen for myself or daughter I am getting the dreaded blue screen of death.

If I boot back up in safe mode with networking the same thing occurs, but if I boot just in safe mode I log on ok.

I just don't know how to fix this problem or where to start. I have copied the following from a message which showed windows errors;

BC Code 1000008E
BCP1 c0000005
BCP2 00000000
BCP4 00000000

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I would try getting vista drivers for your VGA card first, if it starts in safe mode and not in normal thats the first place i would look...

"I have just installed Vista with SP1 as an upgrade over XP"

IMO a move from XP to Vista is a retrograde step.

Do you have the means to revert to XP?

Hi, Yes I ran the Vista advisor and no real issues arose, the PC is a Dell E521.

Sorry, forgot to mention as I now have no connection to the internet I am on a laptop wireless connected to my router.

I have a dell E521, I never have to log on to Vista. If you browse Google, you can find a page, about not using the welcome page. When I upgraded from XP, I had to search for a new driver for the graphics, device mngr will do a driver replace, the driver according to SIW is Property Value
Driver {4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000
Nvidia. hope this helps Aine

Another 3hrs trying out various things uninstalling programs/drivers etc.

I now think it might be something to do with my graphic cards, in drivers page I have noticed the following; A red circle with memory range FDDF0000-FDDFFFFF.

Also trying to install the Dell vista drivers for the Radion X1300pro I get the following; "Failed To Load Detection Driver"

Any further help would be appreciated.

"that is a matter of opinion"


Which is why I said "IMO" (in my opinion) in my post.
