I managed to get Windows Vista Installed without it shutting down on me, or having problems with random other things. But now when I boot into Vista anytime from when it is loading up to me opening my computer to getting on the net for a few minutes, or watching some video can make it shutdown.
Apparently my mobo is known for shutting down and turning back on within 10 seconds of starting which is normal, so can accept that restart happening.
Currently I have tried to take out 1 memory module and change the remaining one within the four memory slots, if that doesn't work I am going to do the same with the other module. When I had them both in however before Vista would shutdown it would blue screen for a short amount of time and give me a Page_Fault_In_Nonpaged_area, or something like that. If you ask for a memory dump I can't give you one as the computer isn't generally on long enough for that. Plus I don't know where they are.
The computer routinely (as in 75 % of the time) shuts off in the first 10 seconds, then around 5 seconds after that it turns back on. And yes by that I mean full shutdown, the hard drives stop spinning and all lights shut off.
After that it goes through a normal bootup where it shows me all the booting options (because it never shutdown properly) safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. and then proceeds to boot into windows where it follows with the shutdown problem.
I tried disconnecting all of the drives except the Vista drive, one DVD drive and a drive thats connector was hidden by my video card, it still shutdown.
It doesn't seem to matter what I am doing, I could simply have firefox running with three tabs (Tested Twice), I could have Itunes trying to scan a harddrive for music (Tested three times), or it could have just got into windows and clicked on my computer (Tested once but it has happened twice more with only the explorer open).
If you have any idea, please post.
