I've been encountering the same issues I've seen posted in a few other threads with the computer stopping on the blue screen of death with the Physical Memory dumping message. I just installed a Mach Speed Venom V2DP Motherboard. The processor is an Athlon XP 2400. Memory is PNY 512MB @ 2700. I installed a hard drive I had in an older computer and reformatted it and installed Windows XP Pro. For some reason, the first drive came up with error messages suggesting the drive was bad. I took another spare drive I had and did the same thing. This time I was able to load the system and actually boot up to Windows. I installed the drivers from the CD that came with the motherboard and installed Norton Internet Security. The next time I booted the computer it came up on the blue screen of death. I tried to follow the instructions to repair the WinXP install, but it did not give me the option to repair after clicking on F8 (I agree). The only option was to delete the partition and create one. Now I'm also getting messages saying that this drive may be bad. Both of these drives worked perfectly well in my other computer and were recognized. Any suggestions? I've noticed that the computer is running @ about 140f in temp. Could there be a overheating issue? Or could it be the drives or memory? Any help is appreciated! Thanks.
