ok I would really apperciate your help....

I recently recieved my network degree and instead of working on computer at my school I am attempting to build my own system

i have everything hooked up (if he need specific part names I can get it)

anyways.....I install windows 2000 pro and service pack 4 and everything seems fine...then i go ahead and try to install my motherboard Drivers

when I do this the computer basically freezes...i check my process and the svchost.exe is in the 90% and above and my CPU usuage is at 100%....then it was giving me a lsass.exe error then my computer would freeze

since then i reformated again and right now im still getting the svchost.exe issue

Do i have a jumper issue on the mother board? I didnt touch any of them....

Please help...

Hi,

Do you know what specific driver from the cd causes this? Try and narrow it down.

You should check the board manufactuers website for updated drivers and try them.

Well alot of things could cause this but I suggested trying updated drivers because you said everthing seemed fine till you ran the mobo cd.

To be on the safe side list your temps and voltages from bios.

If you are sure they are normal try the driver updates
