Installed Raptor, now WinXp Pro keeps crashing..

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
i had to reformat my computer 3 times during the last week ever since i installed my new raptor

1st "Delay Write Failed" starts to make computer lag, then i cant start up windows (even in safe mode)
2nd changed jumper on CD Drive from Master to Cable Select, blue screen, restarted and hangs on Windows XP Splash Screen (changed the jumper back, same thing...)
3rd Windows for some reason restarts during the Splash Screen, tried safe mode and same thing happened. Last known good configuration, no success

whats wrong?! is it the harddrive? (bios detects it just fine) is it my windows xp? is it my computer?

help my out here, i need to use my computer soon!
much thanks!

In the bios you will want the HDD detect on auto and you will want to set the jumper to master on that Raptor drive...after that it may be good to reset your C-mos. If all fails make sure that the HDD is on the Ide cable leading into the IDE 1 port on the motherboard. If all else fails RMA the HDD as it may be fautly

Make sure you have sata raid disabled in the bios as this can be a problem.

Run the diagnostics from a floppy. If fail you need to RMA.

1) Make sure you have plugged it into a locked port. Raptors donot like to be overclocked , I have already fried 2 of them.

Yes if you are currently overclocked you will want to return to stock until you find the locked SATA port on your motherboard to plug your HDD in so that when you overclock the HDD wont be affected causing instability issues.

error free, no errors at all

funny thing is that when i placed it on my other computer (for backing up) as a slave and checked for errors, something like this shows up

"replacing invalid security id with default file id #1-11000"

yea a long wait

Well its kind of beyond me this one..Generally i would just rebuild my system and make sure that all Jumpers are set to the correct values on all your drives and reset c-mos but you have done this.
