I just built a new computer and after starting it up it gives me an error when i try to install XP.I boot to disk and hit enter to install XP i hit f8 to agree and then it tells me to select a drive. it then says unknown disc <there is no disc in this drive> reffering to the harddrive (it dosent see the harddrives). so i just hit enter to install and then comes with the blue screen with setupdd.sys page_fault_in_nonpaged_area. So i restart the computer and its back again at window xp menu and i select r to repair and it brings me to a black screen where i have to type commands. i need help to get my computer working again.
I am using a gateway XP disk from my older computer.

System info
New Build Asus P5AD2-E PREMIUM MOTHERBOARD
Intel P4 3.4 Processor 550
Leadtek winfast px6800tdh 256mb
western digital 150gig

Does the computer have an SATA drive?

FYI, an OEM install of XP won't likely activate in a new system.

BTW, welcome to Geeks to Go Adam. :tazz:

First, let's work on getting Windows to recognize that drive. Is the drive recognized in BIOS?

Do you have an antivirus option in your BIOS? If so, try disabling it.

I'm thinking you may have some bad hardware. Let's start with a memory test: http://www.memtest86.com

Installation
===============
Memtest86 is a stand alone program that cannot be executed under windows and must
be loaded from a floppy disk.

To install Memtest86:
- Extract the files from the zip archive
- Open the directory where the files were extracted and click on "install.bat".
- The install program will prompt you for the floppy drive and also prompt you to
insert a blank floppy.
- To run Memtest86 leave the floppy in the drive and reboot.

NOTE: After the boot floppy has been created you will not be able to read the floppy
from windows. This is normal.

It will take a long time to run, let it go through one pass, and see if it reports errors.
