I have finished my new build, with the specs below:
AMD 64 X2 3800+
Abit A8N 32X
XFX 7900GT Xtreme Edition
1 GB on Crucial BallistiX memory
80gb Samsung SATA drive
160gb Seagate Barracuda SATA drive
DVD Rom (from old machne)
Sony DVD Re-Writer
Hyper Type-R 580w PSU
And it is fab, I can now run Oblivion on full spec with little issue at all, which was the driving force behind the new PC in the first place. BUT I have 3 wee little issues which hopefully you can help me with….most important first:
1) When I swap a CD in any of the two drives, it will crash the machine, like if I am installing a multi-CD game like Rome: Total War, or if I am just changing the CD. I have to reboot each time, and after the reboot the CD in question will run fine, no problems. This problem is not only worrying but a total pain as I can not install Total war with out it crashing lol.
2) I installed a 2nd HDD today, the Seagate one, which finally got delivered, and although I can see it in the BISO and the POST screens, I can not in Windows.
My Floppy drive in on all the time and wont read any discs, although it does show in Windows
The last two issues are easy fixes.
First the floppy, you have the ribbion reversed. I do it all the time, Just flip it around. Test it though after, sometimes if left in that state, you can burn it up.
First one still an issue though, got the following from the event viewer:
Event Type: Error

Event Category: (50)
