Here's my problem. To start with, I am at work at the moment and do not have product names or specs. I bought a new Motherboard as well as DDR RAM for it, and bought a new 80 GB Western Digital Hard Drive. I attempted to install XP Pro and several files would not load. I tried this several times and on a couple of occasions it allowed these files to be loaded. However, during the installation, it stopped dead in its tracks and brought up a full blue screened error window stating something about Windows had to shut down due to some errors. If this is the first time I saw this message try restarting your PC... yada yada. Tried the restart and same thing. So I said screw it, I tried installing Windows 200 Pro. Same thing. Last try, Win 98 (1st edition, not the SE version). 98 loaded and worked fine. I attempted to upgrade to XP Pro, and got that same error screen again.
I am at my ropes end with this and am coming close to tossing it all out of the window. PLEASE can anyone help out? I heard that changing my battery on the Motherboard might help but that makes little sense to me since 98 loaded fine.
Thanks in advance for any help.
