frustrating computer problems

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey ocn, so I just bought my sig set up, but I found out that I have to rma the psu because it just doesn't boot the computer, so I figure that it should work now, right? No! It boots now, it just BSODs me when I try to install XP, giving me a pool of three different messages, including one that just doesnt give any information. First time, it was the RAM being seated incorrectly, so I fixed that problem, but now it will get as far as formatting the hdd, sometimes as far as copying windows files before it BSODs. I dont have the BSOD errors right now, but its just frustrating me that i've had such a hard time with brand new hardware... /rant

Just checking... you arn't using raid are you?

You said the first BSOD was ram seated incorrectly, and you fixed it... Did you actually take your time building the computer? Having a ram stick half way in can surely ruin the stick or the dimm slot, and not being careful with static and other stuff (Such as carpet) is a sure way to damage alot of parts.

Seems like faulty ram and/or hard drive. Try 1 stick of ram, if it fails, try another stick of ram. If that still fails then try a stick of ram in a different dimm slot. If that STILL fails download something like WD Diagnostics with another computer, burn it to a disc, and boot to it to test your hard drive.

Having it backwards is almost a sure way to fry the ram stick.

I edited my above posts to help you more.

Also, your ram should be like this X-X-, X being where the ram is, and - being a empty slot. Usually color coded.

well that part is all fine now, the ram is not the issue anymore, it checks out on post, but I havent run memtest yet, i am now believing it is the hdd, because of the BSOD message that I receive when it gets as far is copying files. I can't remember offhand, but it is Pagefile in a non default area

How can you put the ram in backwards i thought they only fit in one way?

Also I know with vista if you have more than one hard drives it can install part of the boot thing in the wrong location and this can cause boot failure. Other than that all can say is test all the parts in another computer to make sure they all work.

me too, maybe i didn't, but I am not positive, im just so freakin frustrated that it hasnt worked out of the box. I am trying to install xp, with one hdd, and I cant test all the parts in another computer because my other computer is a s939 with a dead mobo.
