Hello this is my first time using this forum and i really hope it helps cause im in some serious desperation.

I just bought a new motherboard and cpu and i am encountering some issues.

here are my specs

3.4 Ghz HT Intel PRocessor, Geforce 7600 GS 512 MB DDR2, 1 gig ddr2 ram, and I cant seem to get my 250 gig sata to work on the system now either.

Heres my question

EVerything seems to be running fine after i installed windows XP sp 2 on my harddrive, after i install my PCI network adaptor my computer will randomly completely freeze, cant move the mouse or anything. Whats different with this is that i know it is not spywhere because it will freeze before it even connects to the internet. and i just wiped out my harddrive and put XP on again so i know its not spywhere. I also know its not the harddrive because i retried it with different harddrives and it did the same thing. Im thinking it might have to do with the XP installation and there might be a corrupt file or something.

Thanks so much

How to view and manage event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP should get you started in finding out what is causing your problem and narrowing your troubleshooting focus. If you can give us some specifics from your logs we will be better able to help.

Thanks, It seems to be telling me that all the .msi installations cant find a file that it needs. THis is what the error report says when i tried to install and play Gothic three: Product: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable -- Error 1723.There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action SxsInstallCA, entry: CustomAction_SxsMsmInstall, library: C:\WINDOWS\Installer\MSI22E.tmp
