New Build, Vista Problems Plz help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
OK I just built a new system. Specs are down below.
I loaded Vista Ultimate 64 on and from the start I have been having problems. I would get random system lockups and performance issues.
I had the updated drivers for the EVGA 9800 gtx 512 vid card but only got a 3.7 windows aero and a 4.4 on gaming graphics rating on the performance meter, 5.9 on all the other ratings.
Yesterday after going through several lockups I rebooted. Now it wont load windows and I froze trying to get into safe mode with network support. Today I am able to get to safe with command prompt.
What is the command to reformat my HD from C:\\windows/system32 ?
I am going to load XP

Try to turn off NCQ. It can cause your hard drive to lock up. If you have prefetch on your bios turn it off!
