    Windows Boot Issues

    I have recently built my new X2 system and have loaded Windows XP but everytime it tries to boot for the first time it just sticks at the window logo and scrolling bar.

    System specs:
    AMD X2 3800+
    M2N-SLI Deluxe
    1Gb Crucial Memory
    Geforce 7600
    Western Digital 120GB
    52x CD-ROM
    Sony DVD-RW

    Tried running Memtest to check your RAM?

    As above, memtest your RAM, make sure you've got the right timings set for it.

    Fixed with the latest BIOS upgrade and numerous drivers for the AMD X2.

    Good thinking. Did you try the new BIOS first, or did the drivers not work alone?

    are you letting it run long enough for detecting all devices ?, I've had a few installs where it takes an eternity to detect onboard nic [sometimes over a minute]

    It would've been the bios update, as the system had not yet booted into XP succesfully, therefore the cpu drivers could not have been loaded.

    No, he was exactly right but after I finally had Windows running I had to put the drivers on because of stability issues(It crashed all the time).
