    Hi there,

    Well, you've obviously got the Graphics card plugged in OK if you're able to install Vista and read messages......

    I have a feeling, reading other posts, that ironically there is not a Vista compatible driver for the GF8800 series yet! Ironic as its the only DX10 graphics card and the only DX10 enabled OS, but there you have it!

    Check with others, as I could be wrong, but think you may have to wait until the official release day (30th Jan, I think), and I'm sure NVidia will have sorted it by then, or else soon after!

    cheers gonzo downloaded beta drivers-did the job, by no means perfect though, I doubt anyone will really see the full potential of their G80's on vista until the official drivers are released!
