  1. Hi guys, I hope I am in the correct forum, I have just put together a puter using a Asrock K7s41 mobo with an Athlon xp 2700+ and 512mb PC3200 ram. i have tried loading Windows on the hdd but all I get are BSOD's. They are - those that I have had since trying - 0x00000007A - 0x000000D1 - 0x0000007F and 0xoooooo50. I am using (probably) an outdated cdrom trying to instal and, I also know that the Bios is outdated. Thing is, how can I do any updates if I cannot load Windows? I took a DVDROM from my other machine and tried with that but, still no luck. Anyone got some suggestions please? Regards, jonni65

    Pull the ram - use 1 stick at a time and try.
