First Self-built Computer Won't Boot

I have built a barebones system (Asus A7N8X motherboard, NVidea MX 420 graphics card, 1 stick 512mb RAM, HD, CD-ROM, Floppy) that I'm unable to finish loading WinXP Home on. The installation gets hung up with either the "IRQ_not_less_or_equal" or "Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" Stop errors.

I've replaced the graphics card and reseated the RAM in a different slot. I've troubleshooted the BSOD stop errors on Google, but still no specific advice to tell me to "get a new RAM card" - or whatever.

Any ideas, guys?

Thanks in advance! <_<

Have you tried resetting the BIOS to defaults by using the jumper on the motherboard?
