i think you have a typo in your sig, hehe

Foxconn - Support - Downloads

have the most current bios? Not sure how easy theirs is, my intel does a windows based flash. All default settings in bios too? Also, disable anything you know you don't use.

all depends...I often check my mobo site and read up on any new quirks that may or may not appear...hence available new bioses.

I think the winfast 61508kmd should be 6150k8md..i'ts minor

just as an OS can work perfectly in a default vanilla setting, adding hardware or software can potentially interfere with it...same holds true for a mobo.

My system, based off of intels975xbx, from intel and using Vista Ultimate...no issues.

edit: have you also tried booting into safe mode? if so, is it able to or not?

Did you install anything before this started to occur? Have you gotten into Safe Mode to run scans?

Well this is a isolated issue specifically toward you. I haev not experienced this issue so there isnt any patches that i know of.

Vista Updates - MsBetas.org

Check thru some of those updates and see if any help.

Call them. OEM can only be activated once. So if you changed your CPU or Mobo since you first installed and activated Vsita that would be why.
