Well that seems quick for 11 passes but if you have no errors then try and load the os with just that stick in.

If no go then let us know what psu you are using, brand, watts and amps on the 12v,3.3 and 5v

The amps is listed on a decal on the psu.

Make sure you have the 4 pin connector from the psu to the mobo pluged in

what id advise u do is take everything out memory, graphics card and any pci cards and also the ide cables and also reseat the cpu and unplug and replug the ide cables from the drives then plug all neccacerys in such as memory ide cables and obviously processor and leave and pci devices out and if u have plugged in any usb or serial devices leave them unplugged so to summerise that just incase reseat everything and then plug only the basics and bare minimum and if all is fine then plug things in 1 thing at a time which will obviously isolate the casue if this is the cause.

good idea, i tried that a while ago when i first tried to build this thing, went thru step-bystep, , still freezeing. but recently i downloaded this "Fresh Diagnostic" tool thingy that check my entire computer , everything seemed fine, UNTIL i clicked on Busses-info on PCI,AGP and cardbus Busses, when i clicked on that the computer froze,, and the same happended when i clicked on SCSI info, these arnt random these two are the only things i can narow it down to, i ran pc benchmarkers, and 3dmarkers, and not once did it freeze, i installed FFxi and it dint freeze durning installation, (havent played yet lost the regi. codes), anywho, im trying to find more tools to check my "Busses" and my "SCSI", if anyone has any tools that might help me, or info, it would realy be helpful thxs!!

oyea also the mobo dosnt have a intergrated vid, so i put a radeon 7500 series in a PCI slot, could that be a problem, also i noticed that the vid card dosnt fit perfectly in the PCI slot, it seems that it dosnt "sit" in all the way, i can still see the copper threadings, ..

Ok I'm a little lost here,

You now got windows 98 installed but still can not install XP?

List your temps and voltages from bios

I read the specs on the psu but I am looking for amps on the 3.3v, 5v, and the 12v rail. This is important on newer systems and to be honest that ain't a very good psu and if the amps on the 12v rail are not in the 20's I would get another name brand one.

I might be able to tell more from the voltages listed in bios.

I'm following this thread with great interest. I'm currently working on a pc for a friend and her pc is freezing even more frequently than big's. I even upgraded the BIOS and that didn't help.
