recently installed a new maxtor 80g H.D. into a computer.
installed xp pro.
everyrhing was fine.
now, 2 weeks later, the computer fails to boot.
it gets to the point whare you get the xp logo, then locks up.
it even locks up in safe mode.
sometimes it does not get as far as the logo, it locks up when verifying DMI pool data.
the cpu temp is 46/114 whewn idol.
The MB is a magicpro mp-p4vm-533
now when i turn the comp on the machine gives one very long beep. Bad Ram?
