Built system 2.4 Celron-D
80 Gig Western Digital Drive
XP Home Edition
first Pundit-R sytem would not boot in normal XP mode. Would only boot in XP Safemode. Will not boot in XP Safemode with networking.
Talked to ASUS - said return it...did
new Pundit-R - ZipZoomfly says it is good to go.
System booted first time in normal mode, plug-play event for Ethernet Controller.
rebooted and system hangs during XP screen
Now it will only boot in safemode (same problem as first Pundit-R)
Disabled drivers, etc in msconfig...did not make a difference.
I think the Ethernet Controller must go crazy if drivers not installed??
Ran memtest....memory OK.
Any ideas....I am stuck...
