Asus A8V-XE mobo
NVIDIA 7800 video card (pci-E )
AMD athlon64 3800+ socket 939
Maxtor 80gb IDE udma 133 hard drive
Raidmax smilodon Case with 550w power supply
So here is my dilemma I put all this together. The HDD is from my old pc It has Win XP PRO sp2 and all updates
already installed. I also used a 512mb stick of pc3200 ram from my old setup as new mb uses this type of slot.
I read the manual put memory stick in proper slot for single channel operation.checked all BIOS settings all hardware shows up in bios menu correctly. I turned off quick boot and the memory test before boot shows ok.
Now then It starts to boot fine then just a second or 2 after win XP boot screen logo pops up I get a BSOD flash but it restarts too fast to see what the error is.
I have read other posts at other sites about this happening to others and it seems like a possible ram compatability issue.
So I have found the compatable ram list at ASUS website and will try that Unless anyone here has a better Idea
I cannot think of anything else it could be at this time.
I will wait to buy & install SATA Drive until I know this thing will boot up otherwise I will RMA so any suggestions are appreciated
