    Help - BSOD - new system

    Hy guys - I would really appreciate your help on this one....

    I have just purchased the following:
    Asus A8N SLI
    AMD 64 4000
    FX7800 GTX
    Corsair XMS

    ok - i have put it all together - boots fine into bios etc - everything looks ok.

    When i boot from the XP disk it pre caches all the drivers and then when it goes to boot Windows (i.e. begin installing & formatting HDD etc) i get a BSOD....

    Does anyone have any ideaas on this. I am running a single 300gb SATA from the SATA 1 slot (recognised fine in Bios)....

    HELP!!!!!

    BSOD refers to virus on the system and checking and f/disking the HDD (though i think that its just the standard wording.....)

    Any ideas?

    Things that spring to mind straight away are :

    RAM - possible faulty / unmatched

    Possible disk problem

    Possibly overheating too - check your temps.

    what mobo is it? I would stop the BIOS assigning IRQs for as much stuff as possible/set PnP OS to yes type stuff. If the drive has been ruled out, that is.

    Also assuming that you are feeding WinXP your SATA driver before going for the install? It'll not install to a SATA drive otherwise.

    Sounds like a boot sector virus.

    you can always find the meaning of error codes by putting the first string into Google.

    But he's already tried another drive, which (barring incredible bad luck!) rules that out.

    so far other than the board and memory what haven't you ruled out?

    EDIT - Just for avoidance of doubt (love that term) when you're installing do you just have the one hard drive attached? Also is there a boot sector virus protection option in the BIOS? If you haven't already I'd try switching that to whatever it isn't

    There is pretty much now nothing i haven't tried swapping out or testing.

    I have just completed running mem test on all my memory modules - no fault found.....

    I am going to try installing this evening using the SATA boot disk i have. Other than that, i am completely stumped.

    Problem solved - RMA has been raised for both the MB & CPU (as they are the most likely cause of the problem....)

    Thanks for your suggestions anyway
