help problems after rebuild.
just bought a gigabyte ga-7vt600 motherboard, amd 3200 xp processor, 400ddr 512 ram and i cant get the damn thing to run right.
first problem the monitor would shut off during boot up. read the manual and figured my ati 2/4x agp card was causing the problem. they manual wants an 8x card. so i went out and bought a new video card. had the same problem and started to think it was just a windows driver problem... i could get it to boot in safe mode, so i went in and removed all the devices from device manager... reboot, and re installed the driver. still freeze after a few minutes. so i pulled a hard driver out of another computer formated it and started from scrach with windows 2000... but i cant even get it to finish the install before it get a stop error.
i've tried 3 different graphics cards, two different ram sticks, and i'm on my second motherboard. from the process of elimination it should be the processor... but its going to be hard to get a new one of those. any ideas?
