Unable to Load Windows XP

  1. I just finished putting together a new computer and I'm unable to get Windows XP to load properly. I have a Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard with an AMD 64 X2-3800 CPU and a Hitachi 400 GB IDE hard drive. While loading Windows XP w/ SP2 I get to a blue screen that says Windows Set UP on the top of the screen and at the bottom of the screen it says Windows Is Starting but it never gets beyond that point. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Did you use the correct brands of RAM that Asus recommends?

    Thanks for your response Tedster. I'm runing on two sticks of the Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2 which is on the qualified vendors list of the motherboard. Any other idea? Thanks again.
