Just another note, I did use thermal compound when placing the cooler on the CPU.
This is a computer I am building.
Gigabyte 81945GZME RH Socket 775 Motherboard
SeaSonic Super 400 PS
Pentium D 830 3.0 ghz 800 FSB; Ultra Fire P4 CPU cooler
US Modular 1024 PC 4200 DDR2 533mhz ran
Western Digital 160 gig HD
HP CD Writer and others
No other cards or peripherals are installed.
Installing Windows XP Pro SP1 from the orignial CD
Turning on the machine, the boot goes normally. The memory is correct and the HD and CD are recognized. Windows Setup begins from the CD.
While loading the setup files, the machine just turns off. No error message, no blue screen, nothing. It just shuts down.
It does not stop at the same place (same file)while loading the setup files. It varies.
I have swaped CD readers, checked all the power connections, checked and rechecked the IDE cables, and tried the memory stick in the other memory slot (there are only two memory slots). I do not have another 533mhz memory stick to swap to try that. I only have 800 mhz and 333mhz from other computers. Could I use one of those to see if it is a memory problem??
Any ideas whatis going on?
