i bought my new comp parts from a few places but i know they are all compatable,
asus a8n-sli mobo
amd 64-bit dual core 4200+
1 gb of ram
and i got all the other crap.. dvd-ram drives, hdds etc....
anyway i put in my xp disk into my cd drive, i wanted to put a new copy of xp on the sys,
i can format and load up all the drivers and crap ( when you intially boot into the cd, on the blue screen)
but then when it comes to making a list of files to be copied for some reason it freezes, the cd drive's led stops and after a min the cd stops spinning , which tells me that something happend to the sys or the cd, but i know the cd is fine cuz i have used plenty of times, and i have used diff drives and it happens roughly arround the same time, sumtimes it gets passed, up to about 10% copyign and then it frezees.
whats strange is everytime it freezes symbols and crap start appearing on the screen and then i restart.
is it my disk or has something happend to my sys?!?!
i really need help on this! any advice would be appreciated
