    I booted from the Vista (the guide you gave is for XP ;)) CD, but my steps didn't follow the guides I found on the Internet...
    http://vistahomepremium.windowsreinstall.com/repairstartup/repairstartup.htm
    Here for example, it says that after the initial set up screen (with language, etc.) it goes to the installation screen. For me though, it goes to the screen asking for a product key, then license agreement, then it starts downloading.
    Help?

      I ended up reinstalling Vista, just because I was completely tired of screwing with it...
      Evidently it wasn't done with me.
      Now it's saying my Ethernet driver cannot install correctly...

      Are you getting the driver from your computer maker site?

        Found the driver, installed it, internet works perfectly now. ;)
        So far so good, with everything. I blew out the dust inside my computer casing, which shouldhelp.
        Thanks for all your help! I'll be sure to come back if something else goes wrong.

          OK, so i checked system memory (via Windows), checked the hard drive(via Samsung checker), blew out all the dust, bought a huge outside fan that keeps the whole room cool, especially the computer, checked multiple times for viruses, and reinstalled Windows...
          But I still get the blue screen occasionally when playing WoW.

          STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x36660340, 0x81c48400)

          Thanks again for your help!

            OK, so this time I got a window:
            "Logon process has failed to create the security options dialog
            Failure-Security Options
            OK"

            I pressed OK and my computer froze... I looked it up and it's a common problem related to my firewall, ThreatFire. I just uninstalled it in safe mode, so I hope it will start getting better.

              Again a blue screen, this time when coming back from sleep mode, with the error:
              0x000000A0

              First of all, disable all power saving features. Nothing, but a pain.

              Open Windows Explorer.
              Navigate to: C:\Windows\Minidump folder.
              If you see any .dmp files, zip all of them, and attach zipped file to your next reply.
              Vista users. You may need to copy .dmp files, paste them into some other folder, or desktop, and zip them there.

                There was nothing there :-\
                I downloaded SpeedFan to check out temperatures, and my GPU is at 66 degrees C... Not good, right?

                Video card can take it.
                Post all temperatures.

                  They look OK.

                  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel (Start>Control Panel in Vista).
                  2. Double-click System.
                  3. Click (Advanced system settings link in Vista, then --->)the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
                  4. Make sure, there is a checkmark in Write an event to the system log.
                  5. In the Write debugging information list, click Small memory dump (64k).

                  Next time, BSOD happens, you should have some files in Minidump folder.

                    It was set as Kernel memory dump... Heres the file. -> http://www.mediafire.com/?dmwl2r7ymy2
                    If it helps at all these are all my recorded STOP errors.
                    0x000000F4
                    0x0000007A
                    0x000000A0
                    0xc0000185
                    0x00000003
                    0x86660340
                    0x81c48400

                    So the GPU heat is nothing too bad?
