    ok so i have multiple problems.
    1. my system's psu will sometimes fail randomly while i am trying to install the os (WinXPMCE'05). any thoughts on why or how i should fix it? i initially had a 500w raidmax but replaced it with a 650w antec because i thought it didnt have enough power.
    2. i cant install my os. this could be due to me setting my one and only sata drive as raid, but i started to set it is ide in order to solve the problem. initially i couldnt get passed the formatting section of the windows installer until i switched it to ide. now, i cant get passed the 'saving files to disc' section. an error message always pops up saying

    "classpnp.sys
    page_fault_in_nonpaged_area
    STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFFFE0,0x00000001,)xF791600E,0x00000000)
    classpnp.sys - adress f791600E base at F7915000, Datestamp 41107ec2"

    OR

    "CRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"
    ....
    STOP: 0x0000000A (0xF00027CD,0x00000002,0x00000000,0x8084CD0C"

    i didnt put the entire thing but this is what it says sometimes, othertimes i get error messages not exactly alike, but similar.

    i cant tell if it is a software problem or what, but this is bugging the hell out of me. this must be my 23rd time rebooting. help by anyone would be appreciated. thanks.


    here are my system specs, everything is out of the box, new. i only installed necessary equipment, others will have to wait as soon as i get this stupid OS to work.

    Intel DG965WH mobo
    Core2 Duo E6400
    G.Skill 2x 1gig ddr2 (only 1 installed)
    Seagate 320gig Sata 3.0 HDD
    Samsung DVDRW/CDRW
    Floppy
    raidmax 500w PSU (installed but antec 650w available)
    g-force 7900gs GPU (not installed)
    Raidmax case w/ 4 fans (fans disabled)

    the current computer that i am on does not support Sata, so is there another way around that? should i just bring it into a shop?

    Does the power supply run the board? This is a pre-boot utility, so if you KNOW one of the PSU's is good, hook it up and run the utility.

    You'll have to burn it to a disk...

    Or better still: go to www.ultimatebootcd.com

    Download the basic version and burn a bootable CD. That has SeaTools on it, as well as a whole bunch of other usefull stuff, like memtest86 which will be your next test if the hard drive survives the tes.

    so the hd is fine, it works, i partitioned it temporarily and i wiped it clean. then when i tried to load windows... it begins copying files and then a blue error screen comes up.

    CRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    ....
    STOP: 0x0000000A (0xF00027CD,0x00000002,0x00000000,0x8084CD0C)

    could it be the OS?
    also is there perhaps a faster way for me to reach you, via aim for example.

    If you have RAID enabled in BIOS, disable it
