Well I gather you have a notebook then?
Your processor might be underpowered to run vista.... I know they SAY it is ok but idk if it really is.
I really wouldnt know because I run duel core 2.56 ghz amd 64 bit processors.
When did you buy the computer?
Is this computer new?
The model of the computer should be printed on it somewhere, please look for that for me... would ya?
An E-system eh? I think they are owned by acer now... although you could have gotten one from when gateway was in charge...
Your computer is fairly new and if you bought it, it may still be under warranty or there may be info about your specific model and this problem online. I cant really look up anything until you get me that model number.
here is an example: http://pctuning.tyden.cz/ilustrace3/Sul ... _velky.jpg
Look at the green thing right by the space bar, it says Aspire 7720, that is the model of the acer laptop.
I choose an acer as an example because I am guessing yours may look similar.
