Default Big issue

Today I received my new PC

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+
7800GT 256MB
1GB PC2700



However; to my dismay, in loading window's, I kept receiving error's. Finally, I got through all the error's to the desktop. My sound wasent working, nor was the windows installer, I figured id reinstall.

And, I never returned to the desktop again. For 11 hours I struggled, deleted the partion, reinstalled windows, reinstalled windows over the previous copies, created new partitions. Everything and anything.

The only thing I can think of is an hardware issue, bad harddrive?

By the way, the error's I received were random, and for the most part, different every time.

i think your technician that put the PC together is an a-hole.

You'd better demand him to fix it, because tech's are supposed to do a decent job, your paying him alot of money!

Why didn't you build it yourself, I mean you know how to install/reformat/ partition a harddrive building a computer is not much harder. Other then that just bring it back and whine your *** off at them till they fix it.
