I'm using my old (SATA) HDDs & (IDE) CD/DVD Drive and NVIDA GT 8600 and 600 Watt PS in a new system in an attempt to save some $$. I'm running WinXP SP3. New AMD Phenom II X4 P955 on a Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P w/ 4GB (2X2GB) DDR3 1333 PC3 10666. Boots fine, but crashes with a quick BSOD and restarts shortly after the initial black Windows splashscreen. I figure it needs the MOBO Drivers from the Driver DVD installed to work properly. It will go into Windows Safe Mode (which is creepingly slow), where I can see - and open - my HDDs, as well as see my CD/DVD Drive. Trouble is, when I click on my CD/DVD Drive under My Computer, I get this error message: "Open Device Failure" a couple of times, followed by a couple of "Open driver handle failure!!" Error messages. When I try Windows Explorer, I can see all the subdirectories & files on the CD, but when I open the "Run.exe" file, I get the same Open Device Failure!! and an Internet Explorer Script Error (Object doesn't support this property or method. File:///E:/UI.js. Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?). I choose Yes and the GIGABYTE AMD UD3 7-Series Utility DVD 2.2 B9.0918.1 splash screen seems stuck in "Now Loading. Please wait." Clicking any other tabs on this screen brings up a series of vertical lines - leading me to believe it's just not working.
Any Thoughts? Thanx!
