Urgent !!! Need help please !!!


Recommended Posts

Hello, I've recieived all the things in my signature and put the pc together, I turned it on all seemed to be ok, the only thing I changed was the boot order. I installed windows xp pro sp1 no problem and installed most of my drivers, all was fine, then suddenly I got an error screen and the computer rebooted but stopped after the wondows loading and the screen went off. I then tried Safe Mode with worked fine.

 

So I decided to start from scratch again, installed xp, but decided to install the sp2 patch first of all this time, it installed, I rebooted and now I don't get the windows load screen, I just get a "-" at the top left hand side of my screen.

 

Please help me ? I hope it's not a serious problem and please don't tell me to go and look at the stickys, I've been before but no help.

I've just tried using only 1 stick ( tried both sticks ) in the orange and yellow ports but It won't start at all like that ( black screen ) so I plugged them back in how they were ( I think they got switched ) and I booted up and got to the welcome screen were the pc locked out.
