well ive got a bit ferther sence the last post. i had the ram in the wrong slot. i have a1 a2 b1 b2 i had ran im a1 a2 ... i moved a2 to b1. that fixed the failed to load operating system problem..



but now ive got another problem.. it loaded up windows as it normaly would. said it had 7 minutes left for the install. i went in the other room to grab something to eat. i came back to a black screen with a blinking underscore in the upper left corner. ... now im back and stuck..


so irestarted it.. now im lookin at a black screen but my hard drive led is blinking like its doing something. so im lost.


if its not one thing its another. let me tell ya.

before i do that , i just pulled one stick of ram out and its starting up at the next part of windows installation.. ..


i will try what you said in a moment . i just want to see if it will at least give me a desktop.



i just got off phone with a techsupport at my mobo manu's and he was saying it could be my power supplly being to weak... but i dont know. hes gota smarter guess on computers then myself.. but my buddy pickedmy spec's out and did say something about powersupply but it should run with what i have.
