    I just bought a new computer and got Vista Ultimate 64 bits SP1. However, Vista will crash moments after opening. I will be moving my cursor and all of a sudden my cursor will stop moving and I'll be unable to do anything, except pressing the power button.

    I have tried to reinstall vista and it froze during installation. Following the support guy's advice, I removed one RAM and managed to install no problem, but Vista still crashed a few minutes later anyway, althought the crashes seem less frequent.

    Right now I am getting quite deseperate and thinking about returning this computer. I have simply no idea what caused that. I tried disabling AERO and everything I could think of, including all vista patches.

    Config:
    Vista ultimate 64bits SP1
    Athlon AMD 5200+
    ATI HD 3650
    4 gigs of ram 2x2gis (vista installed fine the first time, bugged the second, had to remove a ram stick to make it install)

    Ask away, I've tried everything, currently running memtest.

    Take it back and exchange it.

    Yeah, well, the company is 500 km away from here... Bought it from eBay, could always proceed like that but I love this computer.

    Finally got a BSOD
