K I bought the OEM version on Vista 64-Bit to run on my new hand built
system. Specs: Intel Core2 Quad 2 @ 2.44 GHz , 3Gb DDR2 Ram .. (was sopposed
to be 4 but i will explain in a sec) Abit FP-IN9 SLI FATAL1TY motherboard and
MSI nvidia 256MB GEForce NX8600 GTS video card ... when I first assembled
the system windows would give me a BSOD saying a memory issue and removing
the 4th Gig of ram i had installed fixed it.. and after installing the OS and
getting all the updates, Installing AVG, Nero,and WoW, I've had frequent
lockups. It could be at random intercals of 45 mins to 6 hours depending on
its "Attitude" I soppose. Most frequent times i knotice its frozen is after i
wake up in the morning and the screen saver is stuck, or when im in the
middle of playing WoW or just surfing the web. I've also had it freeze on me
while I just restarted from the previous crash and was just moving the mouse
around the desktop to click the start button. So yeah i'd have to say Vista
is the buggiest OS ive come across, beyond the problems it runs wickedly fast
and preforms well when running games on it at full rez and several hours
straight .. at least untill it frezzes. If anyone has some tips I can try to
fix this, or at least stem the lock up tide a bit that would be great.

First and foremost, a thorough RAM testing is in order. After that, look for
heat issues. Followed by cabling, and power supply. IOW, look at your
hardware. This sounds like a hardware issue.

Moreover, this motherboard is already "factory
overclocked".(http://www2.abit.com.tw/page/en/moth...20FP-IN9%20SLI)
That would make it quite sensitive to RAM quality.
The fact that the OP had to discard one RAM stick from the very beginning
points the probable root cause there.

I have the same issue with 64 bit Vista ultimate. Asus M2n32-sli deluxe
board and a amd am2 6000 dual core processer. I used to be able to overclock
to 3300 which is 10% on 32 bit version but now that I have "upgraded" I am
left with a steaming heap. 4 gig of sli rated memory but if I turn that
option on in bios instant BSOD. I have tested and retested memory. I am only
running bare hardware because there are no drivers for my $1,000 printer. It
just get to sit and take a break.

I am a big Windows fan but those fella in Best Buy telling me how great the
apple is and no issue with crashes and the fact that they are replacing
Excel and Powerpoint with there version...You would think that would be
****ing you fella off enough to at least get it right for your core
supporters
