I am building a doomsday device (aka my new comp) but, i got everything installed right, but i forgot the jumpers for the mobo, so today I went back and did that, (before it wouldn't turn on right, now it does) But now, I put in my new SATA hdd, which I bought today, and the drivers install well enough, but when it came to putting on windows, it would corrupt files and destroy the setup. After trying and failing for a good 4 hours (8-12) my monitor can't pick up a signal, so now i have a big problem... all the jumpers are in the right positions, and all hardware is in.

Are all the components new? I am having the same problem and I believe it is the motherboard. Bad capasitors, a weak power supply, bad memory, could all be the reason for a corrupted installation.

Everything on it is brand new from newegg, and now I got it working ,but it randomly reboots, so I think it may be my ram (gskill) which i guess is suppose to have problems with the ABIT mobo, so i used memtest86 and together all 4 sticks said 2 errors, but one-by-one had none, so I am using two now, and i suppose it works...

but now to another problem, my windows XP doesn't recognize my drivers on my plug-and-ply cd-rw and dvd-rw drives... and I can't make a boot disk becuase I can't use my burners, (I don't have a floppy)
