    It Works!

    Hallelujia, praise the goddamn PC Lord in the sky! :giddy: :grinthumb
    I got the little beast on the go last night, and yes, very chuffed, I started dancing round my room in fact, hahahaaaaa :D

    Installed CPU (& heatsink and fan), RAM, HDD etc, all recognised in BIOS, woooohoooo! (sorry, bit chuffed cos first modern PC ive ever built for myself)

    There was however, just a few, minor teething problems. One of my hard-drives presents me with a Blue Screen Of Death when entering Windows XP, but ill sort that out later as my other hard-drive is working fine on there with Win ME so im currently booting with that as a temporary measure untill i get to the root of that problem.
    I also couldnt get the CD ROM Drives to run the driver disks between logon and Windows access (even though the drive recognised in BIOS?). This is when im browsing to specify the location for the drivers. So havent accessed Windows yet at this stage because i have to install the Mobo drivers first. But today im gonna get on my old pc, install the current HHD (currently in new), put the drivers on there, re-install that HDD into new machine and place drivers on there ready, so no need for the CD ROM, just a HDD swap. I can then sort out the CD ROM problem in Windows once i have all the drivers installed.

    For now though, I feel great that everything is working and my little creation is nearly alive, ahhhh feels good :)
