Windows Vista Crash After Update
Hi, either sometime this morning or yesterday automatic updates installed an
update for vista after which my computer keeps crashing after booting up
(which it does fine) for about 3-5 minutes. If I boot in safe mode this does
not happen though. I have not recently installed any new programs or drivers
either. Any reason this would be happening?

RE: Windows Vista Crash After Update
Funny, I may have had a similar problem. I cannot verify if it was Windows
Updates or a problem with a Sleep Mode-nVidia conflict (this has apparently
caused people problems). I just find it a coincidence that my computer
crashed on 9/9/08, the day several updates were released. I cannot remember
if I ever installed the updates though. I sent a message to Windows Support
about this and I will post a message here when I get a response. My symptoms
were:
1. Computer came out of sleep mode totally frozen (could not even
CTRL+ALT+DEL).
2. Had to manually kill the power.
3. On start-up, I recieved a message that said "Operating System Not Found"
4. Reinstalled Windows Vista via HP Recovery and so far, so good.

I am reluctant to install Windows Updates until I know that there is no way
in hell this is what caused my crash. I think I will cry if my computer
crashes again!
