After I install windows XP, I install the drivers for my motherboard. Then, when I restart, the computer freezes on the loading screen where it says Windows XP and there's that little blue bar thingy. that goes across the screen. But, the computer will work fine in safe mode. I've wiped the hdd and re-installed Windows XP 4 more times, but it still keeps happening. Any idea what's wrong? And am I right in saying that the DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-Dr doesn't need to have drivers installed for SATA hard drives? I have a sata hard drive, and when i put in the driver CD, all it has is a driver for RAID, not for just SATA. Here's my setup: DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-DR 2gb Geil value select 100gb Maxtor SATA hdd Geforce 7800GT AMD A64 3500+ And that' it. I'm going to try and flash my bios right now and see if that makes a difference.
