    Clean Reinstall

    Computer specs.
    Vista 64 bit Home edition service pack 1
    Case: Antec Sonata 3
    Power Supply: Corsair 650W
    Intel Core2 Quad 9550 2.83GHs LGA 775 95W
    Gigabite EP45-UD3P Motherboard F8 rev 1.6
    G.SKILL Model F2-8500CL5D-4X2 GBPK (8GB) Type 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM
    WD 1TB HD
    Zalman CNP 9500 Cooling Fan
    GeForce GTX 260 Video Card ( superclocked)
    Samsung 22X DVD+R

    I am doing a reinstall of vista on my newbuild. Right now I have 8gb mem, but I am reinstalling with 4gb mem

    Do I keep the same settings in the Bios? Before doing the reinstall?

    One thing is that GSkill wants me to install th 4gb mem in slots 2 and 4 instead of slots 1 and 3. does this sound right to you

    Re: Clean Reinstall

    Vista monitors your usage and gets faster based on the collected statistics. When you reinstall, you wipe out this information so it cannot help. You also wipe out all of the search indexes and boot-time optimizations. You will have to assure that the boot order in the BIOS is set to CD/DVD drive. To enter the BIOS, you should tap either "F1", "F8" or "Delete", key. You can check out the following link. It may provide you more information on the above issue.
