if you have full version of vista when your drive manager screen pops up click advanced and you should be able to format drive i do it every install
Your harddrive cd should have a format utility on it if you still have the cd it is a bootable cd

For your Vista problems, it should of moved your old copy to a folder called windows.old. Or did you get two working copies on somehow? If it's the first you can just delete windows.old and your new copy should be fine.

The 2GB fix wasn't really necessary since you already had a copy up and running, I had no problem installing 64bit with 8gb of RAM myself. I'd take a hour or so once you have a VISTA copy installed and download/install all the updates, including the optional ones which often include motherboard controllers. There shouldn't be any reason to keep installing vista though.

Make sure you put everything back to stock on the video card when you boot up if your using Riva or something to overclock. The bios update should revert all your settings there.

ok, couple questions on this. yes, it moved all the old crap to "windows.old". Windows wouldn't let me delete everything in there at once, but I deleted most of it piece by piece.

So your saying that where I am right now, with a new copy of Vista installed, that I should spend my time downloading drivers and all that?

I guess I've been operating under the impression that just the physical act of installing 2 sticks of RAM wouldn't cause my drivers to become outdated. So when i tried reinstalling Crysis and got the "memory management" BSOD, i just gave up.

If you just reinstalled windows over old one i believe you lose all your driver i honestly don't know as i never go that route but im pretty darn sure. Check your device manager see if you see any warning signs yellow triangles by any devices. Rerun motherboard install disc also

Well, I am not going to add more advice to confuse you further, but what I will say is take it one step at a time. Whenever I have a problem like this, 9 times out of 10 it was something simple and usually user error. The other 1 time in 10 was faulty HW, lol. GL

Yes, definately get all the updates and your drivers updated. I'd recommend 169.25 version of the driver for your video card if your using something else.

Running memtest is the best way to test your memory, you can try windows memory diagnostic tool however for something faster since mem can take hours.

To run it type in memory in the vista run box and select memory diagnostic test. It's not near as good, but if a stick is bad it could show it pretty quick.

As I said make sure your video card isn't overclocked anymore as well, and you might try running ati tool to test it. Almost every bsod I've ever seen has been video or memory related and usually they are video.
