VISTA HOME PREMIUM shuts off computer during install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an MSI K9N SLI PLATINUM MB, MSI NX7300 LE (NVIDIA GEOFORCE 7300LE)
    VIDEO CARD, ATHLON 64 X2 DUAL CORE 6000+ processor with 2 GB CORSAIR
    TWINX2048-6400 C4 RAM. I am unable to install Vista. When it is in the
    "expanding" mode of installation, after about 30 sec, it simply turns off my
    PC. I have tried 5X and get the same result. Can anybody make a suggestion? I have contacted MSI and downloaded and installed their latest BIOS, one they say they have tested and they can install on their MBs. I've tried changing every setting I can think of, RAM timing from Auto to Manual, taking every device off the computer except mouse/keyboard, etc. No luck. When I try the "search for drivers" during install, Vista tells me that it doesn't find any drivers it can use, even though I have have directed it to Vista drivers downloaded from MSI for this MB. Help.
