    A whole new set of problems for a whole new day tbh

    I decided to bang my old hdd in the rents pc to back up the files i needed rather than risk the driver conflict, i then formatted the drive and put it in the "new" system, everything powers up no warning sirens I think everythings peachy turn the monitor on and theres no signal

    Tried it with three different cards and theres no change, any ideas?

    Have you tried to reset your bios by removing the battery etc? I would also check the HDD connections, re-seat memory etc.

    Yeah its nforce2, I've now got it working (re-seated everything again and it now boots) But as soon as it trys to enter the windows 2000 set-up the siren goes off indicating overheating and it resets, when I go into the bios the the cpu temp is only 46/48 degrees

    is the heatsink fan plugged into the wrong slot...hence it IS cool, but cpu fan failure alerts going off

    its plugged into the cpu fan header just like it should be, but after It'd been turned off for a while it lasted longer before shutting down, im gonna re-seat the cpu and bang my w/c system on it.

    Bit similar to Zaks solution. Had a similar thing with an Asus nForce 2 board. It was shutting down because the board thought the cpu fan was too slow (connected to the right fan connector as well) and wouldn't let me change the settings. Swapped it for a faster spinning one and it booted up fine.

    that sounds like a RAM problem (maybe mis-seated). I had a similar problem a while back, when I thought it was a good idea to bump my fsb up to 200MHZ without changing my RAM timings. I reset them memory in the socket and it worked

    Thanks everyone, it turned out to be something that I didn't even think of until I came to fit the w/c, the thermal paste I was using was a good 5 months old and had lost any conductive abilitys it had, idling it was just coping but asking it to install windows pushed it too far, an emergency trip to maplin and a few swear words later and im up and running stable now for a good 5 hours

    I do however feel slightly stupid now
