Yeah, I've noticed a lot less memory leak induced BSODs since I've moved to Vista.
Although, when I do get a memory leak, its a beast.
I was playing Hellgate London back in November, and it...

Most ISPs would be willing to work with you, no matter how large you are, as long as you could show that you could pay the bill.
I work with a guy that has a large pipe coming into his house from...

That dv6000 custom built or store bought?
I happen to be somewhat of an expert on those dv6000 machines.
You use AMD or Intel processor? (Most likely AMD, as you have an Nvidia chipset.)

Cider - Direct X 10 is already installed with Vista.
SP1 installed, no really noticable changes, and the machine is currently stable.
I did take a look at my current memory usage, and CPU...

First off, Hi Nihil! Cider!
I feel so strange coming into this discussion as a Vista user (and a happy one at that)..
Service Pack 1 breaks...

We'll give that a try.
Appreciate that :)
The error code appears to be a catch all code, I can't pin it to anything specific in my research.

512mb Ram on a Vista machine is like trying to fly a Boeing 747 with a 12hp lawnmower engine.
Its just not gonna happen.
Well, at least not well enough to use well.
With 3gb of Ram and a...

Standard installation of Vista Home Premium 32bit (no customizing) has 150+ services on it.
Now, 90% of the stuff on that E-Machine probably uses some additional services, in addition to...

Clear the upper and lower filters.
Its caused by burning software. Including Windows' built in stuff.
I see this 10+ times a day @ work....

I'll take a look into that.
Yeah, Vista takes quite a bit after Xp.

I'm still working. So I appreciate it. :)
Thanks so very much. Helped me out immensly.
Turns out this particular issue stemmed from a failing HDD, but the links helped...

Co-worker of mine came to me just now with an interesting issue.
Vista machines are showing a message that basically states --
User can not log in to windows due to a corrupt account.

Volume Shadow Copy is kinda neat.
It basically makes invisible (the system doesn't inform you of them) clones of files that you have manipulated in some way. That way...

Have you done a disk cleanup lately?
Delete all but the most recent restore points. See if that helps.
Volume Shadow Copy is the cause of many people's frustrations. Its possible that you have...

I've talked with the IT guys at my site, and they're willing to pose the patch to the people in charge of the exchange servers at the corporate end. Local guys were aware of the patch not being on,...

this does help, I can now respond. but I now have to learn my way around it again.
As far as installing the update on the exchange server, I dont' think the IT crew in the corporate offices are...

I pray its Home Premium or Business.
Ultimate on a Xp network can be a nightmare.

Do you have the IPv6 topology patch for XP?
Or, have you tried disabling IPv6 functionality in Vista?
December 22nd, 2007, 09:40 PM
Or if you got milky chunks inside the main component housing. Yum. :confused:

I don't have an XP machine at home to try it from, I can attempt with a 2k machine however.
Vista Ultimate and IE7 I can try to see if its something missing in the Home Premium distro I use.

My company uses exchange 2003 for our webmail.
I use a Vista machine with IE7 in protected mode to check my mail from home, and a XP sp2 machine on a corporate network @ work.
