I upgraded a gateway solo 9150 to 192 mb ram everything else is factory. The problem is when I get to the device install section of the upgrade , the screen goes black and does not come back on. I tried installing in safe mode "windows xp setup will not run in safe mode" any ideas?

I finally got this one solved. It took a clean boot and a bios flash to get xp installed.
