Bluescreen events on new Vista

by dunlor / August 8, 2008 12:26 PM PDT

Hi there, I have reluctantly upgraded to Vista Home Premium, the new computer came with it! I have been having constant "hardware" bluscreen events. My supplier has changed everything but the box, 3.5 disc reader and card reader yet this problem still occurs. If you Google "bluescreen Vista" it seems it is a common problem, with several advertisers offering quick fixes? Microsoft will not help as it is not a problem they will admit to. How do I make me computer reliable?
Thanks and regards dunlor

BSOD in Vista
by MikeNSC / August 8, 2008 12:53 PM PDT

I have a two year old HP Media Center Computer. I ran out and purchaed the Windows Vista Home upgrade the day it came out. So far, the only issues that I've had are compatibility issues (drivers, software, etc). I've not had any blue screen events, no error messages, nothing like that. I've restored Media Center a couple of times, but I always go back to Vista. I like the way it looks, and my computer seems to boot up faster. Sounds like your issues could be the computer itself, out of the box.

Is the machine known to run Vista?

You neglected small details such as the BIOS version, HP's patches to run Vista so I can't tell if you've done it all.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
