    never seen this before--

    installed SSD for the very first time. after I installed Vista I installed the Intel Chipset driver, then restarted
    System Properties wouldn't open--
    Control Panel wouldn't open---
    Windows Update wouldn't open--
    right click Computer did nothing--

    ran sfc /scannow said every thing fine at 98%--

    so I reinstalled Vista--- same thing---
    found 1 thing on Google about may need SP1--
    so went ahead & installed eithernet driver---
    for some reason just as soon as I opened internet explorer-- Windows Update put little
    Icon by the time--but still couldn't open Windows Update.
    let it do what it wanted--- finaly pop up said to restart.

    after restart Vista acts like its back to normal---:eek:
    installing Vista SP1 stand alone download now---

    this is very weird-- never happened before with regular harddrives---

    luckuly windows must have had a patch for this problem:confused:

    Vista is not aware of SSD's or what needs to be disabled when it's installed on SSD's to keep performance up and to keep the wear down. You must disable several things or use a tweak utility to do it for you, here's one: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4926-ssd-tweaker.html

    You should update to SP2, the Platform Update, and all other updates as quickly as possible to get Vista patched and optimized. Then apply the SSD tweaks.
