I don't have L3 Cache...O.O?

  1. Yo, I've posted here twice about my video problems, but I've somewhat overcome them (No content is sent to the screen sometimes, so I have to click the reset button), and am having several problems installing Windows Vista RC1. I get this error: before it installs, so I investigated my bios. Within my bios I saw "L3 Cache Enabled," however, I don't think I have anything like that, so I disabled it, and now instead of a blue screen after it loads files form the disk, it stops at the black one were the green bar should go back and forth -.-. Please help, I've been trying to fix this PC since last Thursday, and need it for my work.

    Would I be better off just tossing all of my NTFS partitions and going to Linux, or just giving up all in all? ='(

    I'd recommend just buying a full windows OS. RC1 will expire soon anyway.

    I do intend to buy Windows Vista Home Pre., but I'm just not in a position to do that now. Ubuntu seems to be installing, but I've yet to boot into it.

    Hmmm, the only CPU's I know of that come with L3 Cache would be the older Pentium II (or I) :suspiciou ...what are your system specs?

    Anyway, this is straight from Microsoft themself or itself (;)):

    What do you mean system specs? I posted the hardware I brought. :p
    The motherboard has an FSB of 1066.7 and the RAM is clocked at 677 of 800.
