Computer Help
Ok computer nerds, I'm building a new system and I'm having an issue,
I got a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2 CPU Black Edition Processor, and
a PCChips A15G GeForce 6100 Socket AM2 Motherboard, with 2 1 gig PNY DDR2 RAM chips, I got it all installed and go to install windows, windows errors out with various different erros when I start installing any solutions the RAM works fine on another pc?

Ah, why you gotta' be a nerd if you know about computers? :doh:

Anyway, check your RAID/AHCI settings in your BIOS.

Re: Computer Help
what should they be set at? I know basic stuff but not alot about rooting around in the bios, I've put together a couple puters but they all pretty much worked right off the bat.
I like being labeled a nerd lol

Re: Computer Help
:doh: It's problems like these why I stopped building my own machines....reduce the clock speed to see if it's heat related issues and test the memory using [URL="http://www.memtest86.com"]memtest86[/URL] bootable [URL="http://www.memtest86.com/memtest86-3.4a.iso.zip"]iso cd[/URL]. Also, you might want to see if the systems works at all using [URL="http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download"]Ubuntu live cd[/URL] (FYI, it has memory test feature so you don't need to burn the memtest86 iso).

Re: Computer Help
thats the funny thing ran mentest on that system got all kinda of errors ran on another system ram went through fine, which leads me to believe the Motherboard bios set wrong or a bum motherboard. I'm bringing home a different brand of Ram to try tonight
