I know I need a new motherboard, but want to learn something about the mechanics of the motherboard.
I posted here a couple of months ago about a video problem (Random system freezing
). Bottom line is that when I run Vista normally the system will freeze and a series of lines appear on the monitor. Same thing occurs if I use a graphics card. However, if I start Vista in Safe Mode with Networking, the system never crashes. I'm posting this while in Safe Mode, but if I were to restart and run Vista normally, the system would freeze within a matter of minutes.
So the reason for this post is to learn "Why?". Why no problems with freezing in Safe Mode vs. running normally?
Thank you in advance for any information. Just trying to learn something about the mechanics of the mobo and the OS.
