I just put my pieces together:

ASUS P5K Deluxe
Intel quad dual core processer
250 GIG Sata drive
2 GIG DDR2 memory
PCI Express video card

Had a few bumps but got it all together and running. When I boot up I get video, I get the "beep" and I can access BIOS screen. Other than that nothing. blinking cursor sometimes. Once I got is to read a windows disk and it returned blue screen with comment that computer had virus or bad Hard drive.

Can anyone help me?

The beeps can usually give you some information on what the problem is.

Sooo...did you check the hard drive at all?

If you just installed Windows, it's unlikely that you have a virus already :thumbsup:.

I would try running chkdsk /r on the drive from the Recovery Console of the XP CD.

And...since you have a SATA drive...did you load the SATA drivers when installing XP?

Did you also change the BIOS boot options to reflect that you want to boot from your SATA drive?

is your cpu a quad core or dual core? or a octo core :S?

you shouldnt need the sata drivers for that board, unless you are running raid..

sata drivers when not needed = broken pc :thumbsup:

other then that, run a memtest (www.memtest.org) for a few passes see how it goes

what pci-e video card do you have? also what psu do you have?
