    Honestly, I'd try to reinstall Vista.

    However, before you do that, I'd also...

    Run memtest: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic62524.html

      alrighty, well then, I'll try a reinstalll.  But there is a problem with that.  When I try to run Dban, it loads the screen and I tell it what to do,  but it freezes while "searching for the floppy".  I don;t even have a floppy!  And also, I cannot boot the Vista dvd without going into windows.  I mean I tell my computer to boot form cd in the bios, but it never does.  What do I do?  What is happening?

      As I said, something is not right.
      Create those two bootable CDs, and see, if they'll boot.
      I suspect some hardware problem.

        well, the gpu fan sticks often.  So I have to give it a small push.  Alright, I'll be right back.

            Well, I have just come to an epiphaney or something.  The one and olny time I have ever been able to boot from the cd is when I first installed xp.  That was only in december.  Could it be some incorrect settings?

              Compruler is pretty tough on those. I don't know.....
              I'd start with replacing that sticking fan, or a whole card.
