i hooked the monster to the grafix card and the black screen said a bunch of stuff and then

verifying dmi pool data..............
could not boot, insert boot disk

so i inserted the xp disk and it said
verifying dmi pool data..............
then it launched into the windows xp installation. when it asked me about partitions i turned it off and added a couple fans directly to the psuand put the lid on the case and stood it upright.

i turned it on again and now it just says

verifying dmi pool data..............

and hangs there forever

Just so I understand correctly. This is a brand new build, Windows is not installed yet, right? Can you turn the computer on and get to the BIOS?

this just in:
it says "update succesful" if i disconnect the hard drive.

it doesnt matter which sata slot i use or which sata cord i use, and i tried running just 1 dimm

the thing recognised the hdd when i started installing xp, it even counted its bits

OK GET THIS!!!:::
i put the xp disk in and restarted. i had the hdd disconnected until it passed by the hang, then it booted xp setup. AS QUICK AS THE WIND i connected the hdd. setup loads, and detects it. it is now formatting. what do u think? i am suspicious because the keyboard seemed to stop working after i pressed f2, f9, or del to get into the bios options, boot menu, or recovery disk. it is working now through thesetup. btw, same results for 2 different keuyboards in 2 diffferent back pannel usb slots. what do u think?

I think you should take a deep breath, relax and slow down. Take the time to read the BIOS setup section of the motherboard manual

To navigate in the BIOS you use the up, down, left, and right arrows to move to the areas or items that you wish to look in or change. You use Enter to choose the item that you will want to make changes in. You will use the + and - key to change valuse, enable, disable... The escape (Esc) key will usually get you out of the section that you entered. Most all BIOS are similar in this respect, but as suggested, you should read your user's manual to be clear on how to navigate in your specific BIOS.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

update:
ok ive been working on this all day. the computer seems fickle. sometimes i am able to do what i want, and sometimes not. i used to not be able to select any of the options in the bios, boot order menys, but now i can for the most part. i am using the correct memory cpu and fsb timings multipliers speeds and voltages, however, it will not let me change the vcore. i goofed around in the bios and finally got it to boot up a different way. it now sasys windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. could not read from the selected boot disk (cdrom). im going to try the same trick i tried before with a different version of windows xp, but i am unhopeful and need ur input.

If it were me, I restore the default settings in the BIOS,and make sure the optical drive is first in the boot order, and install Windows.I'd make sure the computer is up and running before I'd start tweaking different settings
