I'm having some major problems off start-up. I just re-installed windows twice, and reproduced the exact same result. I have tried unplugging all non-essential hardware and still no luck. All products are out of box, but the possablity of DOA still exists.
The hardware is as follows:
MB: Tyan Tiger K8W S2875
CPU: 2x AMD Opteron 242
RAM: Corsair 1GB PC3200
HD: 2x WD 74.6 GB Raptor
PSU: Antec 500 Watt
Video: ATI Radeon 9250 AGP
OS: Windows XP 32-Bit
When the computer starts up, the login screen just freezes with a white box and does nothing. When I enter safe mode ( either with networking or without ) it logs in just fine and acts great. All devices have been detected and installed by windows.
*** maybe this is whats causing it - no offical drivers can be installed due to windows installer being disabled in safe mode ***
P.S. >> The CD that Windows Xp is being installed with was straight from the sleeve. It's a new Windows XP SP2 CD.
