    Computer Shuts Down

    Ive tried installing Vista Home Premium 5 times on my new build but my
    computer will always shut itself off at the exact same time. When I turn the
    computer back on itll say Windows didnt finish because of an unexpected error
    and to restart and try again. The installation will make it all the way to
    when the screen says that its getting ready to load Windows for the first
    time then it goes to the Completing Installation screen, waits for about 10
    seconds then the computer shuts off. I have a Athlon X2 5200+, 2GB ram, and a
    geforce 8800gts. Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

    Re: Computer Shuts Down

    Any additional info ?
    e.g. Motherboard
    SATA hard drives ?
    If so, were Sata drivers installed during the Vista install process ?

    the mobo is an asus m2n32 sli deluxe wireless edition and im using a 80gb
    sata drive. I figured i didnt need any drivers since i was able to see and
    format the hd during the vista installation.

    i love that mobo, lol.
    dude try the following:
    - take out 1 memory stick of RAM (i am asuming you have 2 of 1GB)
    - if you get the same problem then try only with the other memory stick.
    - load the default settings in the BIOS.
