I just finished building a new computer and having some technical difficulties. whats happening is that when the computer starts, it makes the 2 usual beeping sounds (think thats normal) and after that it shows the blue screen and thats says: [COLOR=red]A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.[/COLOR] [COLOR=red][/COLOR] [COLOR=red]If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, [/COLOR] [COLOR=red]restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: [/COLOR] [COLOR=red][/COLOR] [COLOR=red]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 manufacturar for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.[/COLOR] [COLOR=red][/COLOR] [COLOR=red]Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory option 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.[/COLOR] [COLOR=red][/COLOR] [COLOR=red]***STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005,0xF75820BF,0xF799220C,0xF7991F0C)[/COLOR] [COLOR=red]*** pci.sys - Adress F75820BF base at F757B000, DateStamp 3b7d855c[/COLOR] I tried clearing the CMOS memory by resseting the jumpers but that did not help. Here are my System Spec as of now: Motherboard: Abit IP-95 Processor: Intel Pentium D Socket LGA 775 3.0GHz RAM: Kingston 1Gb (512X2) ddr2 pc5300 667MHz Hard Drive: Western Digital 20Gb PSU: RaidMax Model No. RX-420KS 420 Watts One additional Add on card: Diamond 7.1 soundcard If you have any advice on what is should do, please tell me. Thankyou.
What i like to do is start of with basics ie, get your motherboard and processor fitted, put in 1 stick of memory and a hard drive then gfx card if no onboard option is there to use. Once you have it back to basics turn it on and see what happens. Go into the bios and reset to defaults as these are normally the safest values. This can eliminate problems with the other bits. If it still does the same, swap the ram with the other stick and try again, this can indicate if a stick of ram is to blame.
If still no joy, remove the parts being used from the case and assemble them on a bit of wood or plastic and try and start the system outside the case, if you have earthing problems this can let you know.
Did you get as far as intstallng an Operating System? Or did it do it first time and every time since?
Hope this helps, can take an hour or so but it is systematic and worth taking the time.

I'm guessing he's actually using the board's Onboard GFX, since I just checked the spec of it out on Abit's site.
However that's a good idea to check everything out.
yes i am using on board graphics. I went on installing Xp pro and it goes through the first part (inspecting the system) and after that it is suppose to restart and go on to the next step. after it restarts, it gives me that message. i tried installing the OS on that hard drive through another computer and then plugged the Hard drive into this new built. i was actually VERY happy because it worked but another problem came up, the OS was not activated. i did the phone thing to get it to activate but had no luck.
what i think is that, it does not matter what OS i use, it will just give me that message after it inspects the system.
