    You upon reading this, it raises a good question, what problem doesn't Vista have other than being Vista?

    Once again you need to study the OP.
    It affects ALL versions of Windows, not just Seven.

    I thought 7 and Vista were supposed to have a Red Screen of Death? Or was that changed later on?

    No, it's still Blue Screen, encountered it quite a few times already.

    That was just Vista.
    No one ever said that Win 7 had the RSOD.

    Actuelly, some people who bought the GA got the RSOD.
    But i think that was just a coincidence.

    I run vista (......yeah ¬¬) but I've never ever encountered ANY problems with it in terms of screens of death kinds of things, sure I've had some game glitches like oblivion for some reson a none existant window blink in the top right hand corner of the screen but thats all.

    offtopic: dean how many times do you change your avatar a week I swear I've seen 3 different ones this past 2 days XD

    I had a crash from Oblivion, every time it got 3mins into it. It crashed [​IMG]
    I've never seen a blue screen of death. I want to though [​IMG]

    Uh.... there is no reason, except for maybe some fan-boys rant of opening his mouth where it was not warranted too, seriously have you even used 7, as if you did you would know 7 is far from fail. For having near 1000 posts you sure make some ignorant statements...

    I have used Windows 7. I just don't like it because too much has changed from Windows XP.

    Mehh. This is obviously just Microsoft being stupid, not the Operating System (if that makes any sense)...

    The update is what probably caused it, and since this happens in Vista, XP, and 2000 as well, you can't blame 7 for this.

    I, for one, think 7 launched with much MUCH less problems than when the buggy opus that was Vista came out. So be happy, anti-fanboys.
