Usually means the hardware.

One poorer home builder learned about the BIOS versions (do matter) as they found the BIOS didn't know what voltage to set and after some dozen posts here we dug it up.

It never appeared to sink in even later as they didn't install the latest version.

Looking at your post you didn't share what machine this was. Can I ask why?

I do not know where my ram is from either than it is ddr2 dual channle. my mother board specification website is http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006254R/4006254Rsp2.shtml
. I tried device manager but couldnt find any information about it (i cant find much info on any of the parts i have either than the fact that it is there.) The product number is unknown as well (the manual has been misplaced) as for the voltage i think i could find out with my computer i just dont know how.

In reply to: my computer is...

You can save a few back and forths by sharing make, model up front.

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006254R/4006254Rnv.shtml is the current BIOS and drivers but since we never get the OS going we are stuck with possible bad hardware, someone tinkered in the BIOS, things are plugged into the USB ports (you are not telling everything yet) or the Vista is not what came with the machine (you haven't told that as well.)

Given Gateways has not issued a BIOS this leaves us with:
1. Bios tinkering. Fix: Use the defaults.
2. USB devices. Fix: Unplug all that are not needed to boot up.
3. Bad RAM. Fix: Try one stick or the sticks that came with it.

Failing this the machine looks to be under one year old and if so you should just call it in.
