    After doing a fdisk and repartioning my hard drive I put in the WIN XP CD to reinstall the OS. It goes to the blue screen that says WINDOWS SETUP. On the bottom task bar it says Windows is loading setup. It's not loading at all. It hangs there and I have to reboot and it does it again. I havae changed hard drives and memory sticks and the same problem. Does anyone have any idea.

    Try removing everything that you don't need for now - i.e just have the Mobo, memory, hard drive, CD drive, standard keyboard, and standard mouse. I've seen similar when too many cards were pre-installed, or when wireless keyboards/mouse were in use. Check the BOIS settings to see if they look OK as well.

    Still got no action. This time I did get a bit farther on the set up load. It went all the way until it said set up is complete and then it froze there. Any other ideas?
