Default Blue Screen Multiple times per day!!!

I'm getting this exact problem. I can't use the system for more than 5-10
minutes before it bluescreens and reboots. There seems to be no cause, it's
totally random. I've reinstalled RC1 4 times now, and it hasn't helped a bit.
It *seems* to be a driver problem, but on the most recent 2 installs I
haven't loaded any 3rd party drivers, it's using all 'out-of-the-box' ones.
I'm stumped, and it's driving me up the wall. Beta 2 was actually usable. RC1
crashes if you look at it funny. Explain the logic behind that one. *Grumble*

Anyone else getting this?

Default Blue Screen Multiple times per day!!!

Initially I was seeing this as well whenever the power management options to
turn off my monitor would kick in. After I disabled the power management
settings, specifically I set the monitor option "Turn off the display:" to
"Never", and since then, I have been up and running without any BSODs. I
don't know if that's what you are seeing, but it worked for me.

Default Blue Screen Multiple times per day!!!/Try these.

Timbo--

Have you set it so that you can read the BSOD? What are the keys? First
series of numbers and the key words?

Type sysdm.cpl in run boxor hit Win + Pause Break keys same timeAdvanced
TabStartup and Recovery Settings buttonremove ck. from automatic restart.

Also have you tried what I'd consider the usual cascade of moves to repair
it?

Try the 4 Windows Advanced Options and your 5th option SrT (the Startup
Repair tool).

I am recommending to try the F8 advanced options first, which means to try
each listing on the menu Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode
with Command, and then Last Known Good last there. One may work if another
does not. The first 3 or used as a vehicle to do a system restore. If you
cannot use these, try Last Known Good Configuration.

I don't use Safe Mode VGA for this. I have put every KB that contexts these
options here for you to look at if you need to.

1) I'd use the F8 options including the 3 safe modes (I'm omitting VGA for
this purpose) to try to system restore and I would use Last Known Good if
they don't work. I say 3 because sometimes one works when another will not.
If you use safe mode command, the command for system restore is:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

This approach in Vista is the same as in XP and is based on Chapter 28 of
the XP resource kit and will soon be adapted to the Vista Resource Kit. The
MSKB that outlines this is here--yes it has XP in the title but these
options are available in Vista and I want you to try them first:

How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration
feature in Windows XP

2) If these 4 options don't work, you can try a new way to fix Vista, called
Startup Repair which is part of a platform in Vista called Windows Repair
Environment or Win RE.

I'm going to tell you what it can dogoing to give you the step by step
and you have no downside for trying it.

What It Can Do:

If you run Win RE's Startup Repair in Vista, it will try to check and repair
the following and we're taking about under three minutes usually when it
works which is often: (this is not a complete list but a list of major tasks
it can perform):

Registry Corruptions

Missing/corrupt driver files (you don't have to guess here--it looks at all
of them

Missing/corrupt system files (disabled in Beta 2 as is System File Checker
but present newer builds)

Incompatible Driver Installation

Incompatible OS update installations

Startup Repair may offer a dialogue box to use System restore.

How to Use Startup Repair:

***Accessing Windows RE (Repair Environment):***

1) Insert Media into PC (the DVD you burned)

2) ***You will see on the Vista logo setup screen after lang. options in the
lower left corner, a link called "System Recovery Options."***

Screenshot: (Click first option "Startup Repair"

3) Select your OS for repair.

4) Its been my experience that you can see some causes of the crash from
theWin RE featu

You'll have a choice there of using:

1) Startup Repair
2) System Restore
3) Complete PC Restore

Good luck,
