Am I correct in assuming you have not re-installed vista since changing the motherboard?

The problem with that is that each motherboard has/requires certain drivers and your vista installation will not have the drivers for the new motherboard, and is probably trying to load the old drivers and causing the lock up.

You might be able to boot in safe mode and remove the old drivers (run device manager) and/or simply install the new drivers over the top, not sure.

At this point I would normally do a re-install. If you have another drive to use then you can install on that drive and later access everything on the old one. It does mean you need to re-install all your software and find/copy the old settings etc from the old one, it's a real pain in the butt.

Don't jump right into that solution though as someone else might have a better solution that doesn't involve a re-install.



Yes your right ive not reinstalled Vista yet since changing the motherboard ive just literally changed the board and started and put the vista disc in . What you say definetly makes sense about the drivers im just useless at this sort of thing . Ive only tried this after a guy i paid to build the PC made a real crap job of it so i thought id try myself not changed anything before .


so is it best to run in safe mode and try to delete the old drivers ? i know its prob a dumb question but how do i run in safe mode ? I know it gives that option if it crashes but if its normal i take it theres a way ? sorry if i ask lame things.

Mr. Smith
Just do a fresh install mate. Far FAR easier in the long run.

Safe mode, depends on mobo, sometimes F8 - see the manual

Mr. Smith
How many HDD's you got? Just connect the one you want up, go into the bios, set as your DVD drive as primary boot device, restart with vista in... Should just work...

I only have 1 , thats what i assumed it was doing .

Mr. Smith
Well do that and see if it works!

Set the HDD as the last possible boot device, DVD as first.

Let us know how you get on

If you only have 1 drive and it contains files you want to keep i.e. documents or save games etc then make sure it doesn't format the drive.

As Mr Smith said, make sure the DVD drive is the first boot device, there should be a boot device priority (or similar) menu in the bios.

Well done. As for changing first boot device back to HDD, that's up to your own personal preference. I don't boot from CD at all often so I have HDD first, which means that when I do want to boot from CD I have to go into bios and change it.
