    I've been up all night trying to fix this..

    So I have been having issues with installing WOW and AOC due to memory issues, I was getting blue screens that said

    so I downloaded memtest and prime95 to diagnostic the problem, will it reported back that memory slot 1 had 410 errors, but I was having problems isolating if the it was a bad slot or bad stick. So I ran prime95 torture test and during the test I received a bluescreen and it came up and went away so fast I couldn't notice the error so I had to reboot.When the computer came back up it started going extremely slow, so I decided to reboot into safe mode. It took roughly like 10 mins to just see the windows logo then another 10-15 mins to get to log in screen then another 10 mins to type my password then another 20 mins to see my desktop and this was all done in Safemode.

    So now I rebooted again, this time I would get black screen for like 30 mins after Windows logo. So I decided to just re-install Vista it took a very long time to get to Vista re-install screen and next think you know it I get blue screen with the following error

    nvstor.sys address 863e9395 base at 863e50000 DATAMAP 46671a61

    So then I figured it was dvd drive I was install from so I unplug the defective drive and used my 2nd dvd and run install again, this time I managed to install Vista took roughly 3 hours, and now BINGO re-installing didn't do anything because it still takes nearly an hour to just boot up.

    Now I'am convinced this has to be hardware issue, but I don't know what it could it be, I ran a system diagnostics I tested CPU (passed) motherboard (passed) hard drive (passed) memory(I'm surprise that it passed) the only thing I couldn't test is my graphics card, so now Im really stump, I'm leaning towards that its a bad motherboard or Hard drive but I don't have enough experience to distinguish the symptoms. Please help me with this, my business and my family depends on this computer running.
