I was building a new computer and everything was fine. However when I begin installing Windows it gets to a certain file and then gives me an error message. The file which it stops at seems to be random as well, which is odd... Any help please?

I believe it was shadowduck who pointed out the other day, many times when windows hangs up loading from the CD the problems traces to the RAM often. You might try putting just one DIMM in slot one and loading the windows CD that way.

Could also be the hard drive. If replacing the ram doesnt work... Good Luck m8.

I've seem this WAY too many times where it's ram, course if the HD is clicking or making strange noises that could be a telltale sign as well.
