humm maybe I should make a topic but I was just wondering.. my OS seems to always be unstable.. like I had Vista on my raid-0.. 1st time I intsalled it I had WMP and IE crashing on me all the time.. even when I would go to open a partion/drive it would close on me.. well than I reinstalled vista.. it worked alot better but aboout a week ago I kept getting windows explorer constantly reseting/crashing so I reformated and put vista on 1 drive (no raid) also that happedn just as I took my system out of my case because I was finally getting around to painting/moding the case.. now on this "freash" install to 1 drive crap is crashing again ie everything in my toolbar (razor software cam software elc) has just vanished and ie crashes alot especially when I hit the x to close it restarts.. what do you think the problem could be.. could it be my motherboqard you think? tigger had a friend who had a gigabyte ds3 that was problomatic. Any sugestions will be greatly apreciated hopefully we can get this problem sorted because its been like this for TOOO long! ps: dont say ditch Vista! Edit: also I am running my overclock lighter and my memory timmings are super relaxed now.
