Okay, being Xmas and all i built up my new Rig.

Here are the Specs

AMD64 3200 939
Geforce 7800GT

Okay, i have had maaany problems. For starters it doesnt like to boot with more than 1 stick of ram inserted, i have no idea why. Anyway, my main problem is i cant install windows. After clearing the CMOS i get a message saying that there is a CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR and that settings have been set to default. If i continue it backs up the CMOS then all i can do is restart. I have set the CD drive as the 1st boot device in the BIOS and saved. The only problem is when it gets to scanning the CD drive and when it should be getting ready to set up, the display goes blank and the computer restarts. On some occasions when the computer gets into the setup it crashes after a short while. I have also had hangs on the message Verifiying DMI Pool Data.

Oh, one more thing... I have had the message that the system is in Safe Mode and that the CPU frequency needs to be changed a few times but it is set to what it should be.

I have no idea what to do now.... :tazz:
