D:\nt\private\ntos\boot\setup\arcdisp.c error when installing WinXP


Recommended Posts

During Windows XP setup while my system's hardware is being checked, I receive an error that says:

 

"An unexpected error (-1) occurred at line 1562 in D:\nt\private\ntos\boot\setup\arcdisp.c. Press any key to continue."

 

Pressing any key causes the system to reboot. I googled for the error and I found out it could be faulty RAM. My system's hardware is as follows:

 

ABIT NF7 (Default BIOS settings, no performance settings besides increased FSB)

Athlon XP 2500+ (200 Mhz FSB)

2x Corsair ValueSelect 256MB DDR400 (VS256MB400)

ATi Radeon 9600

WD Caviar 160GB hard drive

NEC 3520 DVD writer

 

I took out one stick of RAM (Lot 0433028-0) and Windows XP setup runs perfect. Should I bother with running memtest86? Am I good to go as far as filing an RMA request? I bought the RAM from newegg over 8 months ago and it is past their return date.

I think running memtest would be a good idea just to isolate the problem.

 

Here are the directions you can use to run memtest:

 

1. Head over to http://www.memtest.org

2. Click on the link labeled "Download (Pre-built & ISOs)"

3. Next click on the link labeled "Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)"

4. Download the software and Unzip the program files

5. Make sure a floppy disk is inserted

6. Run the program, when it asks which drive letter type in "a:"

7. Program should finish writing, reboot off floppy disk

8. Allow memtest to run 2-3 passes

 

I hope these instructions help you! Please let me know what happens!
