I am a new computer builder, I have built a few from time to time, nothing like this. I was having trouble loading the operating system at first until i switched off the raid recognition in the bios. After I did that the operating system loaded fine then I did the xp downloads to service pack 2. I got a desktop up and after a few moments the mouse would lock up, a reboot was the only thing that fixed it. It would do this evertime I turned on the computer. Only thing I could figure out was its overheating because the case is not real well ventilated. It did not feel hot, so I was sceptical but I send the processor and motherboard back for another one thinking I might have damaged it on install. The processor fan is one of those with the four spikes you push in and turn to lock and that sucks to use, but it came with it. I am guessing its something in the settings somewhere. The new processor and motherboard are having the same issues i can get on and play my online games but its jerky and sometimes it locks up. The graphics look beautiful fantastic but its jerky and studders please help .....
