hello all,
so i am new to this website and i need your help with my recently built computer.
my parts are:
intel i5-750
mobo: intel dh55tc
ram: (i think it is kingston) 4gb (2x2) DDR3 1600 mhz
HDD: WD 500 gb SATA
optical drive: LG 22x OEM
gfx card: xfx ATI radeon HD 5770 1GB
case: silverstone precision
PSU: coolermaster 650 watts

i asked the guy in the store to put these parts together for me and he did free of charge(i only asked him because i was in a hurry)
and now when i put windows XP CD in it only installs for 5 minutes then it shuts down without a reason
so what do i have to do to make this thing work? i didn't do anything in the bios because when i went to take the computer the guy said that my computer is ready for installing windows and i don't have to do anything in the bios so i only changed the time and date.

please reply ASAP and im sorry for my weak english language :sweat:

Multiple problem here. (the system probably cost you $1000 plus and you have no proof from the builder that it works)

One - Best to let the builder install the basic software, that way you really know the new systems works.

Two - You don't know if it is a system or software problem and you have no logical path to try and figure it out.
