Hi i have built two machines, both with vista capable hardware. Firstly i installed vista and got several blue screens of death, second machine with a different hard drive and different vista DVD but the only thing i carried over was my graphics card from my own machine and im still getting BSOD. My graphics card is plenty capable of running vista n its a NVIDIA GeForce 7600GT. Now this is the only thing i have carried over between teh two machines. Both are asus motherboards first one AMD and second one AMDX2. I cant seem to work out why i keep getting these screens, its a legal version of vista too. But if any has any information it would be great, i would like to move on n get onto vista!! I shall try and capture a camera image of the BSOD 2moz.

Thanks

Jamie

Hi Jamie,

We need some more information about these blue screens, as every one is different. You should see a Technical Information section, and under that a *** STOP: . We need to know everything, letter by letter, that you see under Technical Information. That info will help us identify the error you are having and help fix it.

Does it blue screen without the nvidia graphics card?

On one of the machines I built and put Vista on I got the same blue screen, all I did was reseated the ram (pull them out, pop them back in) I blew out the slots the ram sticks go in. I had no more blue screens after that. Another machine I had on another comp was caused by the video card. But I dont think that is the case with yours.

Bug Check 0x1A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

The MEMORY_MANAGEMENT bug check has a value of 0x0000001A. This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.

0x1 The fork clone block reference count is corrupt. (This only occurs on checked builds of Windows.)

Think again about running a Nvidia 7600 Video card with Vista.

If you are running the GeForce Release 175 WHQL drivers for the 7600 series card and still getting blue screens, your really need to upgrade to a newer card.
