amd xp 3200+ (not 64)
1gb of pc2700 ram (two 512's)
nvidia 6200 agp card
new 20gb 5400rpm drive..
not sure about the mb,
but the model of the comp is emachines t3265
Well it started with winxp freezing during bootup, when it displays the windows logo with the blue bar shooting back and forth....then it would just freeze and quit moving.
So i didnt want to deal with it, wanted to start over anyway, so i threw in the emachines winxp restore cd 1.0. Formatted the hard drive fine, rebooted, started the winxp setup. Chose my timeszones, agreed to some disclaimer...
then i get to the next screen where it asks "What's your computer's name?". Hit next again, then it freezes again! It freeze right on the "What's your computer's name?" screen. The buttons go white (can select anything), then it acts like its about to take you to the next setup screen, but stays at the "What's your computer's name?" screen.
Figured it for a bad hard driver. Went and got a new one, ran the same cds, and the same exact thing happens, freezes at "What's your computer's name?".
Thanks for reading my essay, and any help is much appreciated!
