Default Help, new system problems.

Hello. I just built a new system today, and am having some problems.

I put everything together and it started right up, I inserted my Windows XP disc, and it began installing windows. After a minute or 2, I get a blue screen of death, and it says something to the effect of make sure I have enough space on my hard drive, which is also brand new. This happens a few times, so I decide to plug in my old hard drive.

With my old hard drive in, it boots up, and when it is about to start up windows, the computer resets itself, and does this until I manually turn the computer off.

Anyone know why this could be happening? I switched out the video card, and still the same problem. I don't have extra ram to experiment with.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

I don't think it has anything to do with your video card... try to take 1 stick of ram out.
