Default Will a re-install of vista fix BSOD? Did mem test and no errors occured..

So yea I keep getting BSOD randomly, and its starting to get annoying.. I searched the error BSOD gives me but can't find a fix...

So will this possibly fix the problem? I have vista, can I run a repair so I don't have to re-install all my programs again?

Thanks

It would be best to try to resolve what is making it crash first. If it's flakey software or hardware it's just going to keep doing it.
Post the 0x........ error code and what device or program if it shows that. Some times it doesn't.
Have you updated to SP1 yet? I had an issue with tcpip.sys that was resolved by doing the update to sp1.

i think they are both driver related or definitely the first one.
the 2nd one might be memory related.
