  1. hello.. I'm havin big problems with a new system that i have put together.

    system specs
    Motherboard: P5GD1
    Memory: Samsung 512mb (Single chip)
    cpu: 530 3GHz
    harddrive: SATA 160 GB MAXTOR
    video: Asus PCI-E 5750 Extreme

    Problems i'm havin
    1) when i install windows xp i get lots of missing file or corrupt file warnings but my cd is like new (no scratches)
    i have even tryed it on an other puter, just to check and it works fine
    not sure if this has something to do with the SATA HD or Bios configs

    2) i have mannaged to get windows install without an error comming up. now problem being i have intenet but i cant access network connections in the control panel (it takes about 30 minutes to open) and it's blank. Doesn't show a active connection yet i have internet ... problem is i host game servers from this machine and thay look for that con. and it's not there and i cant make one.

    there are more problems but there minor if i could figuer out these 2 i'd be happy for now

    oh and my network adapter is a Marvell Yokon PCI-E GB controller

    Formated 8 times :(

    Have you installed the drivers for your motherboard and the network card?

    Run a memory test just in case it is bad RAM causing you issues.
