I just upgraded a number of parts on my computer: RAM, Motherboard, Processor, GPU, ect. Everytime I try to start up my computer it goes pass the BIOS screen and then fails to boot and restarts at the VISTA loading bar screen. Is this because i need to wipe my HDD and if so how do I get past this with out loosing all of my information on it?
Zman. You're best served to do a re-installation of the Vista, especially if you can't even get into Safe Mode. Vista is trying to load chipset, video, etc., drivers for a chipset, video, etc. that are no longer there. If you want the best end-result do a fresh install...you'll be done before you know it.
