I bought the following list of parts to upgrade my system. Built it this friday and im gatting some issue im not sure about how to fix ...
Rosewill RE502-SLV ATX1.3 500W Aluminum Power Supply
ASRock 939Dual-VSTA Socket 939 ULi M1695 ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Manchester 2.2GHz Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA4200BVBOX
Western Digital Caviar SE WD3200JB 320GB 7200 RPM IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive
POWERCOLOR X800GTO256MBDDR3 Radeon X800GTO 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
I Installed everything, useing 3GB dual channel memory i was useing before, PC3200, installed the new drive, loaded windows xp pro with no issues (system runs about 46C in bios). System came up when done, installed avast anti virus, Kerio personal firewall, and Mozilla firefox. After this the screen went black... and never came back... (est time 5 min to lockup)
restarted by power switch, system came up, after getting up trying to access old drive (as slave) system locked up (screen froze, no mouse movement) and never came back. reset again, but these 2 issues continually return..
unplugged all but main hd...no change
New Heatsink (dropped temp from about 51 at bios to about 46)
changed power supply(to old one 425W)... no change
changed video card back to old agp 9800 pro, system worked but was choppy and slow...
bought new motherboard, that one gives bluee screen and reboots.. taking it back..
have not tried old hard drive as main... not sure why? program conflict?
old motherboard is p4 with agp so not much i can change inbetween..
I put it all back together hooked all drives back up.. system appeared to work fine, played a flash game online, accessed the second drive all looked good... and then it froze and went to black screen... (after about 2 hours)
