So I just put together a quick and dirty computer.
AMD Athlon x2 64 4200+
MSI K9N Neo
2GB DDR2 800mhz (no-name?)
Seagate 250gb SATA HD
WD 160GB ATA HD
ATX 500w PSU
I've been trying to install Tiny XP, Tiny Vista, Tiny 7, but I'm always getting errors.. Vista and 7 both say continuously say files cannot be copied, or setup cannot continue please restart... When I do get one of them to install.. I have a hell of a time installing any other applications..
Nero 9 - says file is corrupt, but installed fine on my laptop.
Office 2007 - says cannot find specified folder, but the folder is right there and installs fine on my laptop.
Many other apps come up with errors.
Originally I thought it was one of the hard drives, but it happens with both.
I'm thinkiing its either the Mobo or RAM.. any suggestion??
Memtest86 v4.00 says I have 53504 errors on my memory.. ????
You have multiple issues here. The first issue is that you're not using a legal version of your OS. Come back when you buy a legal OS or try something like linux. Second, you obviously have RAM issues. Properly functioning RAM will return NO errors when running Memtest86+. You should manually set the RAM speed/timings/voltage to the recommended specs in the BIOS.
