Corrupted again

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well,

My XP Corrupted on my hard drive, a WD2500KS (WD SE16 250GB SATA). It would get to the boot XP "scrolling" screen, go black, and stay black. I had 2 of these hard drives, with one just sitting below one unformatted. So I just installed to the unused HD and for a few restarts (about 5 or so) were good. Next thing I know, it's happening again! I have all new computer parts and my RAM is good. Anyone know what could be up? I know that bad PSU's can cause Hard drive corruptions, and I doubt that I would get 2 bad HD's so the bad PSU is what I am leaning towards.

I will try with my old EIDE HD as soon as my SATA is done formatting and installing.

Most of the corruption issues I've had have been RAM related. RAM settings can cause corruption even if the RAM itself is good. If you haven't done so already, manually set your RAM timings as a misread of SPD tables can kill your Windows installation (this has happened to me with Corsair before).

I think this also is your RAM. I doubt it will run DDR2-1200 without problems.

I have it at 1105 mhz, and stock is 1066.

Crappy motherboard? Rofl! The 680i is the best on the market right now...

So back to 5-5-5-15 @ 1066 I go.

Run Memtest to determine definitively if your RAM is the cause of the problem. When I had data corruption as a result of bad RAM settings, Memtest produced tons of errors on the first pass. Once you either identify the RAM as being the problem or eliminate it, you can move on to the next step in troubleshooting the problem.
