    Vista BSOD - Intermittent on BootUp

    I'm getting blue screen when I boot my new Vista Ultimate 32bit PC. After a number of reboots it boots correctly. I've tried various drivers, especially nvidia ones, tested the memory for almost 24 hours using memtest86 (no problems found). Once it's booted up the PC is quite stable (outside of games that is). An example dmp file is below (though Vista sometimes says it's produced dmp file but I can't find one in C:\Windows\Minidump):

    Re: Vista BSOD - Intermittent on BootUp

    Hey mate,

    I don't know how much I can help, I had similar issues myself but when using Vista 64 bit. I was having BSOD mainly just after the computer started but also much more rarely during video playback and general internet use. It was very fustrating.

    I tried numerous drivers and memory tests and nothing seemed to work. I then loaded Vista 32 bit and everything sorted itself out. I know this doesn't seem very helpful but maybe you could try a fresh install. Sorry for not being much help, but persistence will solve the issue.

    Re: Vista BSOD - Intermittent on BootUp

    what do you want to use this PC for?
    any reason why you couldn't use XP?

    most stores will agree to let you take XP now (and upgrade later) because the current driver set is so poor, if this is a new computer.

    Personally I'd use Linux but that is a different kettle of fish entirely!

    I'd disagree that the driver set for Vista is poor, especially on modern hardware (yes, the latest nVidia drivers suck, and the Creative ones always have/always will but...)

    CSRSS.exe is the Client Server Runtime Server Subsystem, and as such if this is failing to start cleanly I can imagine that it would be a fairly major issue... Pointers for troubleshooting anyways (I believe that's why you posted, not to be told to use Linux)

    Run Memtest86+ for a good 12 hours or so, that'll help rule out RAM though if you're always getting the same fault I would suggest it may be your hard drive (s). If the memory passes fine then run a chkdsk /r on each disk and see what happens.

    There are also reports of issues with the chipset drivers for that motherboard causing BSODs, not sure if there's an updated version available?

    Re: Vista BSOD - Intermittent on BootUp

    Well if it was my computer would first check if the memory is seated in firmly, then do the memory check.......still a problem? Check that the voltage for cpu etc are correct in the bios............still a problem? Then as it's new and not filled with docs, programs, jpgs etc would format the drive and have dual boot for xp and Vista......still a problem? Then pop in and old PCI graphic card, I was using a very old Matrox mystique with 4 meg memory for vista, till I upgraded so vista and winxp are very tolerant.
    I would be suprised if you still have a problem after the above.

    Re: Vista BSOD - Intermittent on BootUp

    the key bit of my post was "what do you want to use the machine for?"

    Evidently you use it for games - most gamers want to extract all available horsepower
    but what else? There may be something that drives the upgrade? You are running 32 bit, rather than 64 bit; you don't have so much memory that it would be ignored

    If you don't need vista - maybe you should consider XP?

    The vista driver issues are well documented. They have changed architecture and are also providing 64 bit options. There is a fundamental design change; whereas the XP driver set were an incremental change. A lot of people are resisting upgrades as a consequence. see for instance:
    UK Daily Telegraph this week
    ZDNet on MS allowing corporate downgrades - a few weeks back

    [Rant on]
    It seems a fundamental principle of personal computers that you should buy them and use them according to your needs - not according to the needs of a manufacturer - or corporate IT [/Rant off] To design (or redesign) anything properly you need to understand the purpose...

    • I said "personally I'd use Linux, but that's another kettle of fish" - it's personal choice
    • I guessed for a gamer it's probably not the platform of choice!

    sorry if I distracted with a throwaway comment
