Msi 890gxm-g65 and amd 1055t x6 problems

Hi everyone,

I just bought parts for my new computer yesterday and installed everything:

890gxm-g65 motherboard
amd 1055t x6 cpu
corsair xms3 2x2gb ddr3 1600 with 7-8-7-20 timings
golden field 650w psu
old western digital WD2500JS - 55NCB1 hard drive
*my hard drive contains my old windows xp files along with some important personal files

I load into bios and checked that I am on 1.6 and the system recognizes the amd 6 core cpu.

I get the msi logo and one beep, but black screen after that.

I removed the cmos and booted with one stick of ram twice testing both sticks, but no luck.

My guess is the hard drive with incorrect windows xp settings, but wanted professional opinion.

I also have windows 7 64bit OS on CD ready to install, but I do not wish to wipe my only hard drive clean because of personal files.

Any suggestions and help is much appreciated.

Update:

I jumped into bios again and reset to optimal defaults.

Upon restart, I get to the windows loading screen, but the system restarts itself!

Interestingly, the cpu is running at 50 degrees Celsius and the fan is spinning at around 4500 rpm.

I turned off the system for now as I think the cpu is overheating and causing it to shutdown on its own.

Any suggestions?

if u have 890gxm-g65 or new mainboard u must reinstall your OS so that u cant experience incompatibility probs. hope ur important files located in drive d or anywhere but not in your OS location....

You might have forgotten to put on some thermal paste or forgot to lock the HSF to the socket on top of the cpu. My 1055T was running 45c in bios as new purchase now 4 months in, the cpu now goes to 38c on idle and 47c at 100% load. I am using tuniq TX2 thermal paste BTW.
