Hello, I'm new to building PC's (it shows i'm afraid)..
If the following has a really pathetic simple fix - I can take it on the chin .. I just need some support...
New Build MSI 945GCM5 V2 Motherboard with Pentium dual core E2180 LGA 775 2Ghz. Kingston 2GB DIMM (2 pc’s) & SATA Hitachi 250GB.
Beeps 3 times at POST but cannot find out what that indicates?
Can not get XP to start loading… pass various mem tests from floppy’s – ran for 5 hours and passed all tests..
Tried to load XP Driver Txtsetup file using floppy – it reported that it loaded freedos(?) then hung at ROOT????
What files should I transfer from CD to floppy?
Tried a working IDE HDD with Win XP ~ it went into safe mode option screen then re-booted again & again.... with the beeps every time ..
Hum? I’m lost and frustrated – what am I missing here?
