Page Fault- a nightmare
My computer started throwing up errors before loading the OS, so I began replacing parts of it bit by bit (it needed upgrading anyway). Right now, the configuration is as follows. Brand new components are indicated by an asterick.
Biostar NF325-A7 Motherboard*
Athlon 64 3400+ Processor*
Topower 400W PSU*
80GB Maxtor IDE HD
512 MB RAM (2x256)
PNY Geforce 6200 128MB AGP VCG62128AWB V-card*
The system posts fine, but will not run Windows. In fact, it won't even run windows setup. I've also tried running Windows Vista Beta 2 setup, and it doesn't work either. Both give me a page fault error.
I've also tried a Maxtor utility to low-level format my hard drive, but it gives me the same error and exits.
Figuring that it was the memory, I ran Memtest86.... and nothing came up. Multiple passes, no errors. I'm completely at a loss. I've tried replacing all the cables in the case, running minimal builds, etc. Any ideas?
