Hi, sorry for the delay in replying and thank you for adding me to your friends list
Thanks for all the info but first I have no such geeky cousin I can call
Sorry the text was copy/pasted from a tutorial (must remember to edit it).
Without knowing how your particular BIOS system is set out I cannot direct you to the ACPI function however with your additional information I don`t believe that this is the appropriate approach to resolve the issue in any event.
Can I ask how did you test the memory, and how many sticks of Ram do you have?
If you are able to boot into safe mode with networking I suggest that you download the latest drivers for your video card and save them in a new folder on your desktop then uninstall the video cards present drivers and shut down the PC, disconnect the power cord from the wall, open the case and remove the CR2032 battery on the MB for a few moments and then replace it, this will restore your MB back to the default factory settings so upon first boot you will need to go into the BIOS and reset the time and date, save and exit (F10) and then Y to confirm that you accept the new settings, Windows will use its generic video card drivers which will then allow you to install the drivers that you saved earlier, your drivers available @ http://www.amd.com/u...es/hd-4600.aspx
Hopefully this will resolve the issue but if not provide us with the requested Ram details along with confirmation that you have Vista Sp2 installed.
