I finished putting together my first computer, im semi-experienced with it and am pretty sure all the hardware was installed correctly.
i tried installing windows xp with a "windows xp reinstallation disk" but that gave me a blue screen about halfway into setup.

i then reformatted my HDD and tried to install vista, i again got pretty far into the installation before it gave me the BSOD

the first time i got a message like

_____________________________

Windows has encountered a problem and has shut down in order to prevent damage to your computer

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

and then some other stuff,

then a stop code i forgot to check

_______________________________
then when i tried vista i got a message like this
_______________________________

Windows has encountered an error....

UDFS

then some other stuff

stop code
______________________________

And now when i try to boot vista, it says windows is loading files and when the bar gets to 100%, instead of going to setup/install screen, it goes straight to this blue screen EXACTLY

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. if this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video Adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable Bios memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x00000000, 0x84C2AC38, 0x84C2A943)

and thats it, just the barebones.

if there is any help anyone can give me it is greatly appreciated, also if there is any information i can give you that i may have left out, please let me know

*** btw, when i boot my computer up, says T-FORCE(my mobo) then it goes to a screen that has something like this


System Monitor

and under it, it gives me all kinds of info about my system, like voltages for different components, cpu fan speed, cpu temperature, system temperature, and other miscellaneous stuff

and if i have a cd in the drive, it tells me "press any key to boot from cd"

however i tried safe mode, and it tells me that something is missing
its called somethingboot, or bootsomething, i know it has boot in the name but i cant recall at this moment

The XP install obviously failed on a driver problem since its origin was a different system.

The Vista install was correctly executed so far as I could see, especially because you reformatted the HDD.

So what is incompatible and causes the install fail?

1/
I take it that there is nothing connected to a USB port during the install. We don't want to cope with external interrupts. You could also look at your USB settings in the BIOS.

2/
Try an install with a different graphics card. This is a favourite failure point. An el-cheapo graphics card that will work with the standard Windows VGA drivers might do the trick. Then when it's all running, you can install the Radeoon card using the install disk that comes with the card

3/
RAM might be suspect. You could try the install on just 1GB RAM, swapping if necessary. I doubt that it's RAM but is a distinct possibility.

Let us know.
