I have a problem with my pc that I have just put together. I have never done this before so I might have done something wrong.
My pc is made of the following parts:
AMD 64 Athlon 3500+
A8N-SLI DeLuxe Motherboard
2 x Crucial 512 MB 184 - PIN DIMM 64 x 64 DDR PC 2100 UNBUFF
Maxtor 30 GB Harddrive (from old machine)
NEC Double Layer DVD-Burner
Old screen card (Waiting for 2 x 128MB Leadtek PX6600GT TDH128 Extreme).
400 W Power Supply
My problem is as follows:
When I started the pc up for the first time I got a screen where it said: "Cmod dont add up". But that does not show anymore. I have corrected the time and date in the set-up.
Now I get the following when I start up:
The Asus welcome screen where I get the option of entering the set-up menu with the text "Press Del to enter setup". Without entering it moves on to a black screen with the text "Press CTRL+S or F4 for Raid Utility". Without entering that it moves on to System Config with some data and automatically goes on to the "Option page" where you can start-up windows in "safe-mode" or normal start-up (Dont know exactly what it says in english as my xp is not english). When I try either one of these options the screen blinks one time quickly with a light blue screen before it shuts off and restarts. And so it continues over and over and.....
I have not used the Raid utility as I have my disc connected directly into the motherboard with 40-1 pin IDE cable.
Does anyone have any tips for me what I might have done wrong? ;)
