So this is something not related to that. That will come up after we figure out what is causing this BSOD.
Mak, thank you kindly for your support. Well, I suppose I need a crash lesson...
Can you tell me the exact meaning of BSOD?
Sorry, I have only built one other computer [7-8 months ago] and perhaps I totally lucked out because it has worked flawlessly. I was hoping this might be the same, but not so.
Here was my last build that I totally "lucked out" on!
My old, but great running system:
Intel 805D [$78]
ESC P4M900PRO-M v.2 [free with 805d]
ThermaTake CPU Fan TR-2-M21-RX [$19]
Microfly clear case $25]
Ultra ATX 600 watt power supply SLi ready [free]
PQI DDR2 RAM 2GB=1GB [$29]
PPA Firewire PCI Card [$15]
e-GeForce 6200 LE PCI Video Card 128MB [$29]
Pioneer DVR-710 DVD/CD burner [$25]
Maxtor 120 GB ATA HD-8 MB CACHE [$19]
Maxtor 200 GB SATA HD-8 MB CACHE [$59]
WINTV-HVR 1600[$90] Ouch!
Windows XP PRO [free, a friend gave it to me]
Gosh, should I have not dreamed for a nicer system?
