Hi all. I have a friend who asked me to put XP on a Compaq Presario V6000. Turion 64 dual core CPU, 1gb ram, 90gb hdd. He picked up a copy of XP pro. The system worked decent, but unfortunately came with vista pre-installed. I wiped the drive and attempted to upgrade to XP. However, halfway through the install, the system randomly shuts down. The install will not even progress past the phase of copying files to the drive. At random points, it just shuts off. Sometimes during the file copying phase, sometimes after the first reboot where it configures files. It simply shuts off. I suspected a bad hard drive, so I swapped the drive into a known good machine and successfully installed an OS on it. I ran a few sector scans on the drive, and in the machine it initially came in, it shuts down. The same drive, placed in a dell d620 shows no errors. I then suspected ram, so I swapped the ram with some ram from a known, good machine and it still shuts down halfway through the file copying process. Finally, I suspected bad board, or bad WIFI card, so I yanked the mini-pci Wifi card and attempted to test using a bootable linux disc (knoppix). The system boots and runs fine for several hours. I can surf the web with it and load applications ok. So.. what gives!? Hard drive checks out fine, Ram checks out fine and the system even boots using a cd-based OS. Is there any way I can get an OS on this thing!?
