Well, Ive finally got my collection of new bits working....in a fashion.
It boots into windows...eventually.
It responds to mouse clicks ...eventually.
BUT, I cannot load the drivers from the mobo disc. It goes through the setup process which takes forever.
Incidentally it took about 9 hours to install windows.
I am totally at a loss now.
Athlon AM2 4000 x2
2x 512 ddr2 ram strips
160gb sata drive
All installed correctly as far as I am concerned.
I have biult this for someone and my reputation is falling apart here.
