Maybe your Motherboard is not accepting it?

There are a lot of suggestions on possible causes for this problem on this website:

You have not told us what operating system you loaded on your system. You said you reformatted the hard drive and then tried to reboot. You cannot boot from a freshly formatted drive as it has no boot information on it.

If you are going to install windows XP you can boot direct from the CD - change the boot order in the BIOS setting to look at the CDROM drive first.

If you are installing older operating systems you will need a boot floppy. If you don't have one you can either make one on another Windows 98*Grinler machine or download one from www.bootdisk.com

Hey Big,

Good to hear from you again sorry to hear you are having problems.

Just to make clear, you have loaded XP then rebooted to a problem?

Would you tell us exactly what you built? I know its a hassle but it will help us to help you.

On a side note, I had similar problems loading XP in the past. Heat. Xp takes a long time to load and works your CPU to breakdown.

When I load XP I always open the side panel and put a box fan on high to cool.

Just from what I know now I would format your hard drive, use a box fan to cool CPU, and reload XP.

Let us know,

junkdk :thumbsup:

Dear Big,

I have to say this, did you double check your connections? It could be something very simple.

Is that a new mother board? Re-seat the CPU but be careful. And replace that temporary CPU fan with a better heatsink and fan. Intel only gives you a cheap fan.

On your side.

Let us know,

Junkdk :thumbsup:
