pc from hell (with AI)
i decided to do some major upgrades to an old pc of my cousins. I put in (semi new):
- sound card
- more hdds
after installing winXP and slackware, it worked for awhile. Then winxp started giving me stop errors (BSoD's) and slackware froze when i got into the gui. to make matters worse, some of the time the pc wont boot at all and gives me the bios beeps. The worst i have seen it do is make the monitor connected to it flash on and off continously. And by no fault of my own i snapped off the battery clip on the mboard which suprisingly has made the pc slightly more stable.
my question is what the helll is going on?!?
i think that it might be the motherboard
please help i really want to get slackware working on this system
My advice is if you want to spend time on this (possibly) faulty hardware is to remove everything that is not essential , even the mouse to start with.
Things I can think of to look into are :
memtest86 .. make sure your not using dead memory
hope you find this helpfull & and hope you find your fault ...
thanks ill try that
unfortunatly, i have 3 assignments to do right now.
ill get back to you if there is success or failure
