    Question setup problem XP Pro on new computer

    Built me a new computer of new components. Just used the following items for starting up:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>


    - Thermaltake firepower 480W<o:p></o:p>

    - ASUS P4C800E de luxe socket 478<o:p></o:p>

    - chipset Intel 875P MCH<o:p></o:p>

    - DDR memory Corsair TWINX1024 MB - 3200LL CAS 2,0 (2-3-2-6) advised by ASUS (two pieces of 512 MB matched pairs)<o:p></o:p>

    - P4 3,0E<o:p></o:p>

    - 2x Western Digital Raptors 74,0 Gb S-ATA (not installed in RAID)

    - Videocard Nvidea 6800 GT 256 MB DDR3<o:p></o:p>


    First made some settings in BIOS:<o:p></o:p>

    - memory settings 2-3-2-6<o:p></o:p>

    - changed AGP aperture size in 128MB<o:p></o:p>

    - switched off promise controller because don't use it for installing S-ATA drives<o:p></o:p>

    - switched off powermanagement<o:p></o:p>


    Then started installing XP Pro (OEM version) and I the following happened:<o:p></o:p>

    1. XP gave a few times the message that it couldn't copy some things but gave a retry-option which I used. XP proceeded installing<o:p></o:p>
    2. failure setupdd.sys" "page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" I checked at microsoft and I found a message that it could be a defect RAM or RAM is not compatible with XP (knowledge base 315335). Problem is that I cannot check my RAM with software. My other computer is very old so it won't fit. Is my BIOS ready for this fast RAM? My RAM is advised by the motherboard manufacturer!<o:p></o:p>
    3. Strange is that gave it a second try and then it gave another failure ASC3550.sys" "the driver unloaded without cancelling pending operations" Haven't found anything about this failure.<o:p></o:p>
    4. I gave it a third try and theb it gave "CDFS.sys" "page_fault_in_nonpaged_area"<o:p></o:p>
    5. I gave it another try and the last error appeared again.<o:p></o:p>

    So, conclusion is that everytime another failure appeared with .sys and I don't know what to do. I bought some fine stuff but can't use it.<o:p></o:p>


    My kingdom for the solution.<o:p></o:p>


    Thanks already.<o:p></o:p>

    Put the memory settings to spd and try again. If that doesn't help then maybe try to use one memory stick at a time.
    Antec 900 case (4 120mm and 1 200mm lighted fans + UFO flashing light set + 2 12" and 1 6" Mutant Mods meteor lights) - Aerogate ll thermal controller - Asus M2N-e SLI - AMD 64 X2 AM2 6400+ - Corsair TX650 PSU - MSI 450GTS Cyclone OC - 2 X 2GB Patriot Extreme Performance PC2 6400 RAM - SATA 320 GB Seagate HD, SATA 300GB Maxtor HD and IDE 80 GB Samsung HD - Floppy Drive/Card Reader Combo - LG SuperMulti Lightscribe 18x DVD RW - Plextor PX-716A DVD r/rw - Windows 7 Home Premium 64

    thanks. I put the memory a bit down and set the voltage on 2,75 instead of auto. XP is now installed.
