I am doing a New Build and Am Having a problem i havent experienced before
Here is what i have
Mobo: MSI pm8pm-v
Processor: Pentium D 830
Memory: Ultra 1 GB DDR2 PC 4200
Hard Drive: Maxtor IDE 100 GB
Here is the Problem
I built everything without a problem
went to boot up with my XP Home disc in and it started to scanning hardware config
then went to screen to load setup files
an error screen then comes up with a bunch of number all over it, and at the top it says EXCEPTION
so i restart and try again
this time it gives to about the same place and it comes up with a blue screen saying there is a fatal error and it needs to be shut down, if the problem consist try this and that.
it does this a few times, one time it even restarted without any error message
i have tried multiple xp disc's. home & pro
well finally after more attempts i got windows to load and i can get to my desktop.
once im there everything is okay
but if i restart it will get to the windows splash screen and just come up with a blank screen and nothing happens until i hit and hold the power button.
