arial black Alrighty, issue is this. I have a 3ghz intel p4 with 1gb (2x 512mb) of ddr memory. I have a gigabyte ga-8I915p duo pro. I'm having problems installing the OS, It's a maxtor 80gb hard drive with 8mb of cache. every time I've tried to install my os (winxp pro) it wont let me, it wont even get to the menu to start installing, it will just reset itself. if I don't touch anything it will start up, then restart on it's own. Ask me questions help you out more... sorry this question is kinda vauge just I'm really tired, and just wanted to get it working. I've never used anything, everything is brand new.
