Well, I suppose it could be the motherboard, though I doubt it. I wonder did you check; the board, processor and graphics card on against the vista HCL (Hardware Compatability List) you should be able to find it on microsofts website. Unfortunately being a 64 bit OS, and considering how new it is, very few devices, software and drivers are actually designed to work on vista yet. I hear alot of complaints about vista not working properly. thruth is vista isn't the problem, other companies didn't keep up. anyway, I hope you can fix it. and honestly I hope it isn't a hardware compatibility issue. Either way Good Luck
