Well it's not just Vista, it's XP aswell. I can see the Post BIOS screen and stuff, and basic VGA drivers do work, but while installing the forceware drivers the computer crashed. So I rebooted it and it would lock up with artifacts sometimes at or after the login screen. I had to use safe mode to remove the drivers so I could access normal mode without the forceware drivers being loaded. I tried installing it last year aswell, but even after 2 windows reinstalls it didn't work, so I don't think a reformat would be the solution.
