Try installing windows with just one stick in dimm slot one. Then run memtest with each stick one at a time. bucknutty a b V Motherboard October 14, 2011 8:26:12 PM It sounds like ram.. Like Oldie said try with 1 ram stick, or Download the MS memtest boot cd and run that to check the ram.

Get the answer jtr1888 October 14, 2011 8:43:46 PM Def not ram, think Ive sussed it Although I still cant install Vista, I have managaed to install XP (I think Vista disc has some added protection from Dell) anyway, what I did is change SATA from ACHI to IDE Does it matter that I couldnt install from AHCI especially as mobo is brand new Also, I "think" AHCI is for hot swapping, is this right, as this is a feature that I will use, well, possibly in the future Thanks JackNaylorPE a c 212 V Motherboard October 14, 2011 8:48:11 PM I have seen this issue several times and in each case, Memtest86+ found a problem.
